The movement to help Carita Feliz began during my stay in Guatemala. One day, when the government was supposed to send more funds for the daycare, they instead sent men who took away the tables, the chairs, the school supplies, the food. They ripped the posters from the walls, took the crib and the mattresses. They took the toys, some first aid supplies, and left. After the initial shock and feeling of helplessness, I resolved to help these children. I turned down the opportunity to volunteer somewhere else, told my parents about what happened, and with a seventy dollar donation from a family friend secured new tables and chairs for Carita Feliz. Over the next four months I received over five hundred dollars in donations, which allowed me to feed the children up to two months past my departure, provide families with a modest food allowance, get some basic medical attention for the children, and give them all their first toy. I also gave each family a blanket. When I got to school, I started networking and brought together a group of activists in order to multiply the efforts started by myself. Now that we have an organization with members from different parts of the country, we can raise awareness about the issue and increase fundraising. It is difficult to maximize the organization’s productivity considering the fact that all of the members must juggle a class schedule and in some cases a job with the time. Raising money for and spreading awareness of Carita Feliz has been difficult. As the members get their family and friends become more involved, the organization is picking up momentum which will make things easier.
