Hello family and friends!
I'll get right to it: a dear sister of mine desperately needs our help!
As most of you know, Zik and I spent last school year in Maturin, Venezuela. The country is in crisis, plummeting more rapidly by the day. The best friend that I made there is a young woman named Scarlyn. She has a three year old son named Samuel, and needs to exit the country ASAP to be able to find work that will allow her to support him.
(And by "support him," I don't mean pay for daycare, buy new school clothes, or get his favorite snacks. I mean secure food, shelter, and clean water. It's SERIOUS.)
This money will cover her bus ticket to Peru, plus a little extra for food and boarding upon her arrival.
Please consider donating $25, $10, $5 or whatever you can comfortably give to this fund. Even $1 will help! Whatever you donate will be GREATLY appreciated... and I'm not exaggerating when I say it could make the difference between life and death.
Check out this article for an idea of what's happening there: https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/global-opi...
(Please know that if I had the money, I would give it all myself. At the moment, Zik and I are strapped, and this need is URGENT! So please, if you are moved at all, donate now instead of later!)
Sending love to all of you.
