A young girl was walking along a beach upon which thousands of starfish had been washed up during a terrible storm. When she came to each starfish, she would pick it up, and throw it back into the ocean.
People watched her with amusement. She had been doing this for some time when a man approached her and said, “Little girl, why are you doing this? Look at this beach! You can’t save all these starfish. You can’t begin to make a difference!”
The girl seemed crushed, suddenly deflated. But after a few moments, she
bent down, picked up another starfish, and hurled it as far as she could into
the ocean. Then she looked up at the man and replied, “Well, I made a difference to that one!”
It’s your turn to Save A Star!
At night many of us have the joy of tucking our little one(s) into bed knowing yes we did make a difference in this child’s life. Now you can help do the same or a whole family in Guatemala. The Bunk Bed Project provides beds for families in need within our community. Volunteers bring the beds to the homes of identified families and remove what they were using as beds such as twigs, cinder blocks, wood pallets or nothing and replace with new bunk beds and mattresses.
Today FTGA invites you to make the difference in the life of a family. Your donation of $90 purchases one bunk or $180 purchases the full bunk bed set for a family.
Families who travel on the FTGA Reconnections Trip will see firsthand the impact our efforts make as we will participate in delivering bunk beds to deserving families!
We recognize we cannot change the life of every child in Guatemala but we are committed to make that change village by village, family by family, child by child. At the end of each day
FTGA is confident we make a difference in rural Guatemalan lives though our ongoing giving back projects.
Let’s come together as adoptive families to once again support the FTGA Holiday Giving Back
Project and for all of the Guatemala Stars that deserve health and wellbeing! Making a donation in someone’s name is a perfect holiday gift and you will receive a card with the photo of a Guatemalan Star to share!
FTGA Holiday Giving Back Project Donation Form
