Hearts of Gold - A Success Story

Some of you know that I'm doing a small bit of volunteer work for a non-profit group called Hearts of Gold Foundation.  They have full charity status here in Ecuador and act as a conduit between expats/gringos and Ecuadorian charities and foundations.  They help bridge the gap, acting as "translators", so to speak. They let people around the world know what sort of help charities in Ecuador need and funnel money and products to their partner charities throughout the country.

Why am I telling you all this, you may ask?  Well, the bit of work that I've been doing for them is writing.  (I know!)  I'm adding a link to an article by yours truly: HEARTS OF GOLD FOUNDATION. They really do great work and you'd be amazed to know how far your dollar can go.  100% of donations go to those in need, as Hearts of Gold is generously supported by corporate partners to help them cover administrative costs. This year they are supplying gifts and food to 600 impoverished souls and, funding permitting, could easily double that, as the need is great here.

I encourage you to consider a small gift to bring a child joy over Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, Duwali, Eid or any other holiday you care to (or don't care to) celebrate.  You can buy live stock, food stuffs and other needed items or just send good old fashioned cash. They also accept monthly donations as Hearts of Gold Foundation provides continuous year round support to their partners here in Ecuador.  

That's it for my cajoling.  I've got some new installments planned for the near future, so stay tuned.  Be well!

  1. That is a nice article in the foundations website, it's great you can share some of your retirement time with people in need, looks like a worthwhile cause, will make sure we make a donation.
