Make a Difference in Guatemala

In response to a large drop in donations and fundraising in Latin America, AmeriSpan has decided to launch the “Make A Difference in Guatemala” donation drive to help organizations avoid a fundraising catastrophe. AmeriSpan will be sponsoring another container of supplies headed to Guatemala in September. We need the following:
  • Cash for administration, utilities and nutritional snacks/food
  • school supplies (notebooks, pencils, pens, paper, crayons, coloring books)
  • personal hygiene products (shampoo, soap, nail clippers, tooth brushes, tooth paste)
  • diapers for adults and children
  • educational games/puzzles
  • shoes for children
  • mattresses
  • clothes (nothing too big, mostly for children and small adults)
  • computers (used/obsolete by our standards are welcome)
Why not pack a school backpack with some school supplies, some socks, a pair of shoes and some personal hygiene products. Or if you prefer, you can send a monetary donation that will be used toward the cost of shipping and as direct donations to some of the most needy organizations.

Organize A Local Donation Drive

Help spread the word by organizing a donation drive.  Get 8 people to donate and AmeriSpan will give you $75 off any of our programs, get 15 donors to receive $125 off and any organizer who gets 20 or more donors will receive $175 off any AmeriSpan program.

Why Not Donate Directly?

Going through a coordinated donation drive guarantees that your donations get to the projects where they are most needed.  Secondly, AmeriSpan is working with VIDA, a 4-star charity that sends more than $25 million in medical supplies to Latin America every year.  VIDA's experience helps insure that ALL donations get to the projects by avoiding the common problems of corruption and theft.  Finally, you may think you are donating directly so that all your money gets to the project but often there is a middle man who keeps as much as 10 or 15%.  For example, AmeriSpan chose to process credit card donations and forward the funds to VIDA rather than the usual way VIDA accepts credit card donations because there was a middleman who kept 5% of the donation.
