Fundraising Successes!

Carlos will be able to stay in school next year thanks to his new sponsor!

Steph here, with some good news!  The last few weeks have been busy ones for all three of us, and we haven’t had a chance to tally up the fundraising totals for a while.  This morning, we caught up on what we’d missed, and discovered we’ve hit a milestone–over $15,000 in donations!

The total comes to $15,328.50, and that’s just the one-time donations–there’s also $100/month in ongoing sponsorships!

There have been gifts of all sizes, and for a variety of different causes, but we’d like to take a minute to say thank you to everyone for all the support you’ve given over the past few months.  To keep track of our fundraising progress in the future, and see a breakdown of where the money has gone, use our Funds Raised page (it’s one of the tabs at the top of the site).

Many of these donations have come from readers of, but we’ve been conducting broader fundraising campaigns for the Family Aid and Elderly Care programs since arriving at Mayan Families.  Because of the way blogs work–one story can be re-posted in several places–it’s difficult to separate out what came from where, so we aren’t going to try.  These totals include any money that’s come in as a result of our writing, regardless of whose readers it came from.  Other blogs that have been a part of these efforts include Sharon’s Blog (Sharon is a director of Mayan Families), Mayan Families Connection, and the Family Aid and Elderly Care blogs.

Thank you again for your generosity!

Correction: We originally posted the number as over $20,000.  This was because of an incredibly dumb mistake by me (Steph), and I promise to let Ronnie take care of everything mathematical from now on.  Sorry!
