December Featured Charity: Foundation Escalera
Congrats to Team Living Philanthropic for raising $610 with mustaches for Movember!
Now for December’s Featured Charity, one of my personal favorites, Foundation Escalera!
I’ve been a big fan of an organization called Foundation Escalera, one of their programs involves expeditions to the neediest villages in Mexico to build schools as a way to combat poverty through access to education. For the past 2 years, I have volunteered my time during the holidays to go to Chiapas, Mexico to build a school for some kids in need.
This year, I may not be able to attend, but I still want to send my support. If you want to help us build another school this year, please consider a contribution to Foundation Escalera.
Foundation Escalera is a leader in providing educational infrastructure to indigenous villages in Mexico. www.foundationescalera.org

Living Philanthropic was founded in April 2010 as one man’s mission to give to charity everyday for a year. This mission is built on a belief that you don’t have to be rich in dollars to make a difference; you only need to be rich in spirit. After completing his 365 day mission, the spirit of giving everyday carries on through his friends and in his mission to continue his micro-philanthropy for a second year.
