Here's how we have impacted the Earth in our first three years!
2015: Homeless students of Lucia mar
At the time, Frankie was the standing Families in Transition Support Coordinator for the Lucia Mar School District. She worked with the 1,335 homeless students in the district to supply them with the necessary hygiene products and school supplies that they lacked. Our first year donors were asked to either buy specific supplies from a Target.com registry, or donate funds for Frankie to purchase the supplies herself. We collected hundreds of school supplies and hygiene products that Frankie then distributed to her students. What a fantastic start to the campaign!
2016: A family devastated by fire
Frankie had worked closely with San Luis Obispo County Social Services during her time as the FIT Support Coordinator. As such, a wonderful case worker was able to connect Frankie with a family who had lost everything when their house burned to the ground. Our donors raised $688 to help the family get back on their feet. With these funds Frankie hand-purchased and delivered items that would sustainably help the family. Such items included a $200 gift card for clothes, new bedding, and a device to help their autistic daughter communicate. This family is forever touched by your generosity!
2017: The people of flooded northern perú
The start of 2017 was a devastating time for the people of Northern Perú. After months of intense flooding and storms, many people had perished, and even more had lost their homes. Frankie was personally touched by the disaster after a friend she had made in Piura, Perú passed away in a related accident. To honor her lovely friend Lorena, as well as the country she considers her second home, Frankie partnered with local AIESEC member and friend Aru Moscol Oliva. The two agreed on a list of the most-needed items for survivors in the affected towns near Aru's home of Catacaos. Donors broke our previous record by donating $1,210.44! With these funds, Aru was able to purchase and deliver hundreds of disaster relief items, such as mattresses, food, and school supplies. We stand united with you, Perú!
