Birthday Connections creates hope for some of the most beautiful but poorest women in the Americas. The reason Mayan Weavers are the most marginalized people in the Americas is because they often can't speak Spanish. There are 21 Mayan languages and if there is no work in the village the women are forced into the city where bad things await them. Pleasetake a 10 minute venture into their world through this video. You will be amazed that their world still exists.
Frank is offering his unique garden in the heart of the city to local non-profits free of charge to use for fund raising events. Non-profits are encouraging locals to celebrate their birthdays in the garden where they sell food and drinks. All the garden events include a dart contest. It's 10q ($1.33) to enter a dart contest, winners get 150q ($20) of the Weaver's product. The combination leather purse for $20 is a favorite choice of contest winners
The garden is a rare jewel in the center of the city, the view of the city is panoramic and the garden is in bloom all year. There are very few social safety nets here for the elderly, orphans, addicted, shoe shine boys, unwed pregnant girls, street dogs, even the fire department, the list is endless. Our goal is to use your donation to get more locals to become donors and volunteers. Together we can create a garden space that's not just "another pretty place". The key is the Dart Contest Gift Card, 100% of the donation goes to buy Trama Textile products. Every donation creates 4 winners.
1. The Mayan Weaver who sells the product
2. The Dart Contest Winner who gets the product
3. The Non-Profit that gets the $ raised from the contest, we can at least double your gift
4. You for investing in those who live on the edge in the poorest country in the Americas
To make your investment click on DONATION at the top, Gracias, Tu Amigo, Frank
