This #GivingTuesday, please help me raise money for Mil Milagros to support the Indigenous Maya leaders who are improving health and education in rural Guatemala. 

Right now, job loss due to COVID-19 has left many Guatemalan workers without enough money to put food on the table. But Mil Milagros is helping community leaders provide their peers with the resources and education that they need to stay safe and healthy.

Mil Milagros’ work means a lot to me because [share why you’re involved with Mil Milagros].

Thank you in advance for your support!

This #GivingTuesday, help me fight inequality. Guatemala is one of the most unequal countries in the world, and Indigenous Maya families are the most likely to live in poverty. But I believe that, with the right resources and education, these families can rise out of poverty for good.

This is why I’m raising money for @milmilagrosinc, a nonprofit that develops the leadership potential of Indigenous Maya mothers, teachers, and children so that they can improve health and education in rural Guatemala.

Hi [Potential Donor Name],

I hope you’re doing well. [Personalize]

I’m reaching out to ask for your help on behalf of Indigenous Maya families in rural Guatemala.  Guatemala is one of the most unequal countries in the world, and these families are the most likely to live in poverty. This is especially true now, as job loss due to COVID-19 has left many workers without enough money to put food on the table.

This is why I’m raising money for Mil Milagros. Mil Milagros develops the leadership potential of Indigenous Maya mothers, teachers, and children so that they can improve health and education in rural Guatemala. During the pandemic, these leaders have kept their peers safe and healthy by delivering food and creating educational nutrition and hygiene videos. 

Mil Milagros’ work means a lot to me because [share why you’re involved with Mil Milagros]. 

I hope that you’ll join me in supporting this wonderful organization by contributing to my Facebook fundraiser [insert link here].

All the best,[Your Name]

Our Impact

Only 56% of children graduate from primary school     

97% of sixth graders have graduated from our partner schools

7 in 10 Indigenous children in rural areas are chronically malnourished

Last year, we reduced severe chronic malnutrition by 31% in babies and toddlers

The Indigenous have been victims of persistent racism and discrimination, affecting their educational and health outcomes

More than 4,500 Indigenous community leaders have been trained in early childhood development, nutrition, hygiene, and literacy.

Restrictions on travel, businesses, and tourism due to the COVID-19 pandemic has caused many to lose their livelihood and struggle to put food on the table for their families.

We have delivered 16,000 baskets of food and hygiene supplies to 1,605 children and their families
