When Ceci, my 'sister' from Lima, Peru, told us that this year, she would continue our tradition of hosting a hot chocolate party for the kids of Huaripampa even if we couldn't send anything, we knew that this year's chocolatada had to be better than ever. We are excited to send down clothes and candies this year, as we always do. Glowsticks, toothbrushes and coloring pages were a huge hit with the kids last year, so you know we're sending more of those as well! New this year, we hope to include toys and yep, finally, BOOKS!
We need your help to finance the chocolatada gifts and the continued building of the library, art center and music room. We have several new and exciting events coming up this weekend and into the next weeks, and we'd love to see some familiar faces and new friends out to support us in The Peru Project's best year yet!
Please check out our Upcoming Events page for more detailed information about our participation in the Alternative Christmas Market at UCCH and the 'Donation Days' fundraiser at Twig in the coming weeks. And of course, consider making a donation to The Peru Project this season.
Inspired by your continued support,
