$3k funds a home for a family living in slum conditions. This October, we're headed down to build 5 homes for families outside the city of Cartagena. You can help us fund these homes and make the build a reality!

ALL I NEED IS FOR YOU TO GIVE THE COST OF A COFFEE A DAY

AND WE CAN BUILD IT, TOGETHER.

 

THE IMPACT

  • We work with TECHO, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, to build the homes
  • TECHO is a youth-led, world-renowned organization
  • It was started 20 years ago, and has since built 100,000 transitional homes throughout Latin America by mobilizing nearly 1M volunteers
  • Their approach is sustainable and community-led; this is not a one-off and communities are supported for the long term
  • This home will have a locking door and windows for security, solid roof and walls to protect from the elements, and a raised floor.

THE SUPPORT

  • Funds go to build supplies, tools, day-of execution
  • Every $3k means another home funded
  • On the Journey we stay at reputable hotels, learn from the locals, and support the local economy through sustainable and responsible travel.
  • On this page there are different amounts you can choose to give
  • I humbly suggest $100 or more: this will make it possible for us to hit our goal

Can you spare two minutes to save the world?

OK, two minutes might not be enough for that. But it's plenty of time for you to personalize and share a copy of our campaign.

Together we can do some good for this cause. And it won't cost you a penny—just a few minutes of your time.

Yes, I'll do it!
