Why I'm giving up my birthday:

On December 7th I will turn 40 and for my birthday I want to do something that makes a difference. Ever since my mission trip to Guadalajara in 2013 my heart has been drawn to the people in Mexico and the extreme poverty they face every day. Through my meetings with Mission Increase Foundation, I became familiar with the wonderful work that 1Mission does in Mexico and knew instantly that I wanted to partner with them for my birthday! My goal is to raise $4,000 which is the total cost to build a home for one family. Our family is the The Avalos Huicho family. They live in Puerto Peñasco (Rocky Point), Mexico and moved to Peñasco from the state of Sinaloa about 6 years ago. They have two children, Kimberly who is 11, and Raul, Jr. who is 10. Kimberly is currently living with family in the US and attending school. Raul, Jr. has a condition called myopathy, which is a neuromuscular disorder. Though he deals with muscle cramps, spasms and stiffness, he is attending a local elementary school. When they first arrived in Peñasco, they lived with Raul’s mother. Raul got a job as the chief of security at a local resort. He also owned his own DJ equipment which he rented out. Unfortunately, the work contract at the hotel expired. When he was unable to find other work, he was forced to sell his DJ equipment. This already struggling family was devastated further when in October 2014 Raul suffered a debilitating stroke that left him blind and completely unable to work. He is now dealing with problems with his kidneys and his gallbladder, as well as diabetes. Melissa has some work as a housekeeper, but makes barely enough for food, and some of Raul’s medications. Along with some other families they had constructed a small home from discarded building materials but the homes were on land they did not own so the homes were knocked down. The city government has helped this struggling family purchase a piece of property, but they are without the means to construct a house on their own. A home from 1Mission will enable them to live safely, with protection from the elements, and allow them to focus their few resources on their health and on their daily needs. Now here's the GREAT NEWS…..if I can reach my goal of $4,000 I can bring 30 people from HopeKids with me to do the build!! Isn't that exciting?! My two passions coming together for one amazing weekend of making a difference in our world!! Help me make this birthday my best ever—donate to my campaign, and let’s change the world, together! Matthew 25:40- “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me."
