Hi Family and friends! If you know me you know that I am passionate about the work of Our Little Roses and I'm asking you to join me in supporting real change. I'm doing this through something else I love - exercise! I'm committing to hiking all the way to the Coca-Cola sign in San Pedro Sula. Well, I won't actually be in San Pedro Sula - but I'll be walking the same distance. This is a hike I've done many times when visiting Our Little Roses. The girls ALWAYS give me a run for my money - now I'm asking you to sponsor me by donating to my efforts. You can pledge per mile (
Our Little Roses is dedicated to rescuing young girls in Honduras from situations of risk. In an effort to provide them with a safe space to play, learn, and simply grow up. They have created the first and only all-girls home in San Pedro Sula, Honduras where little girls and young women can escape abject poverty.
The focus of Our Little Roses is to empower these young girls through education and love in an atmosphere of unity, respect, and security - allowing them to become successful women. In a country where only 7% of the Honduran population has achieved a high school-level education, 75% of the girls of Our Little Roses have graduated high school, Moreover, 13% have gone on to achieve Bachelor's, Master's, and Doctorate degrees. At the moment, Our Little Roses in Honduras is home to over 60 young girls (ages 1 to 26 years old) and counting.
Our Little Roses seeks to aid the girls and young women of Honduras to become elements of change in their community by providing them with the best education they can achieve. Through sponsorship, donations, and support Our Little Roses transforms, motivates, and empowers these girls to rise up out of poverty.
Join Our Little Roses and me in this fight to help educate these young girls because as Beyoncé would say... Who Runs the World? GIRLS!
Just a small donation will go a long way to helping me meet my fundraising goal with Our Little Roses.
