The Story

***UPDATE: The very first home has been built! Here is the photo from our local partner in this fundraising effort!! Each home is $10,000 and the second home of ten is in progress for construction!

Myself and several women, as part of Soul Sparkle Seva and in connection with Speroway and Together Works Society, are raising funds to build 10 homes for the women of Padre Ramos, Nicaragua and restore their farm to provide stable income for the women and children.

At this points, funds raised are directly going towards the building of these homes - construction costs and building permits through the country of Nicaragua. I went in February for the first service trip (to help with financial education and vocational skills) and will be going back down in November for our second service trip to support in the building of homes!

**See below for perks or rewards I am offering in exchange for your donation if you so choose!

The homes these women currently live in are at risk of being destroyed and washed away. Together, we will provide them with a more permanent place to live. We will also be leading workshops on personal empowerment, health and wellness, and financial literacy for the women to implement in their daily lives.

Lastly, we will be promoting entrepreneurship within the community by teaching the women how to make handicrafts they can sell both locally and internationally.  Women from around the world coming together to serve women in the world. 

**In addition to my contribution to serve the Padre Ramos women, I want to serve my community as well. For anyone that donates $50, I will be offering 30 minute brainstorming or strategy sessions (my absolute zone of genius) as a thank you. If you donate $75, you get a whole hour! For $125 or more, you get TWO hours!! These could also be used for general life coaching or tarot sessions as well!

ALSO - for those wanting receipts to write off the contribution on their taxes, please reach out to me and I can provide you with a receipt from the non-profit organization we are working with!

Will you join me in helping these ladies have housing that nourishes them and do work that both fulfills them, supports them and lights them up?

Thank you everyone - we have reached almost $1,200 as people have been donating to me personally as well! ALSO, just found out that I will be teaching a couple of classes to the women of the collective, as well as the women joining us on this service trip. Feel honored that I will get to share my knowledge with the women and contribute that way as well! #inittogether

All of the love pouring in around this cause is seriously expanding my heart right out of its chest. Thank you to all that have donated and to all who have shared about the fundraiser! After talking to miss Hayley this morning around the upcoming trip I am even more excited. We plan to make personal contributions to the women if possible.

With that I am upping the amount I am raising to be able to up the cause. I know it is a lofty goal, however I know with all of your help we can do this and truly support these women, their families, their farm, and their community. #inittogether

P.S. The photo attached is from last year's house building project!
