Another GOODIE Bag Success! When I did the first mission, my mom was with me and she kept telling me that philanthropy is about giving to others to improve their lives, but it also change my life too. Back in April we arrived in Guatemala to give away 25 GOODIE Bags to one class of 4th graders, this time the challenge was to give away 60, without my mom here to encourage me.
But I am happy to say, I did it! The smiles, claps and hugs from 60 kids holding their signature pink Little Miss GOODIE Bags and post cards all to smile for the camera is something I will never forget. My mom was right, it doesn’t take much to give and this has changed my life. I family who are my Little Miss Goodie Ambassadors came dressed in their PINK and helped with handing out GOODIE Bags to the families of two classes of kindergarteners at the Santa Rosita elementary school in Guatemala.
We can combat poverty! With as little as $25 you can bless someone less fortunate today! Thank you to everyone who donated to the cause and to the LMG Board of Directors who are helping to take this initiative to the next another level. We are the generation that has to teach the next generation to GIVE!
With the success of the first GOODIE Bag launch in Guatemala during the month of April, I decided to return and give food to triple the families at an elementary school in Santa Rosita.
My family came together to help me fill 60 bags, together my Little Miss Goodie Ambassadors got the job done!
Helping others can be the best thing to bring can be good for the soul. We laughed and talked while we worked; it was good to know my family was willing to take time off to support the GOODIE Bag project
Each pink signature GOODIE Bag contained basic necessities that was packed with love , with the hope of making a positive difference for those living in poverty. …Be Inspired to GIVE!

It’s been over a week and I am still
excited about my trip to Guatemala. With so many sites to see and family members to visit, one memorable moment was the launch of my GOODIE Bag project. Unfortunately there are a lot of
families who can’t afford to buy food because of the cost or large number of family members. Sometimes we don’t think about how those who are less fortunate will be able to manage if the schools are closed and the students will have no food to eat while they are on vacation, which is why Holy Week was PERFECT!
My mom and my grandma have always reminded me of how fortunate we are and that the fun in giving comes with the rewards of future blessings. I was a little overwhelmed at first because I didn’t know what to
expect and sometimes I get anxious with large crowds. But there were
so many families in the school auditorium/gym with the biggest smiles that made me feel so GOOD because then I knew that I was going to be making a difference.
You don’t have
to have a reason to give, just do it because it is the GOOD thing to do.
