So far, so good! We have collectively raised over $5,900 for the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless youth group. Our goal is $7,200, which will provide a year of services to a group of homeless teens in Chicago.
If you are able to donate or share our mission, please do. We will be eternally grateful. Happy Saturday!

***As an added bonus, when we reach our goal, I will do one of the following as a thank you: Send 12 Malaria Nets to Africa via Nothing But Nets, Adopt 2 Acres in Africa via The Nature Conservancy, or put 4 kids through the Grassroot Soccer Skillz program.
While thinking about the over 21,000 homeless people in Chicago struggling to find ways to stay warm and avoid bed bugs, I set out to begin an online fundraising campaign and the #CHIberiaChallenge was born.
I’m posting on behalf on those who can not, I’m speaking up for the over 15,000 homeless youth in Chicago, whether they ran away, foreclosure, kicked out for being LGBT or whatever reason, the point is it can happen to anyone. I believe they deserve at least a warm meal and a sense of community, Chicago Coalition for the Homeless' HELLO youth group provides that and we can help.
Between now and Friday, can you skip a latte, bag a lunch, or raid your cupboard to cook a dinner, and donate $10 to the cause? That’s the message behind the #CHIberiaChallenge. If you are unable to donate, please share this message on Facebook or Twitter, so that someone who might be able to can see this.
Let’s make 2014 a year of giving and caring for the basic human rights for all.

Even the smallest act of service, the simplest act of kindness, is a way to honor those we lost, a way to reclaim that spirit of unity
Sometimes giving everyday can be as simple as setting aside $1 a day for your favorite charity. This year, I’m donating my daily donation to my favorite charity: Foundation Escalera.
I have spent 2 Christmas-es with them building schools and installing wood burning stoves with them in Chiapas, Mexico. I have seen their work first hand and have witnessed the impact we’ve made together! It’s truly inspiring.
Foundation Escalera is privately founded for administration costs so 100% of the public donations made to the organization go directly to their efforts to improve access to education.
