Stephanie’s Cause:

Project El Salvador (

BraceLET”S Change

Just because you can’t help everyone, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t help someone.

In July 2009, my eldest daughter Kara, then 17, and I went on a life altering humanitarian trip to a tiny village called Loma Linda which is in a remote area of El Salvador. Throughout our two weeks we saw and experienced things that made our hearts ache and our minds question. Though the journey was an emotional roller coaster, it was indeed a privilege to serve these joyful, but unbelievably poor people.

Upon our return, we knew we wanted to continue to support this village and especially the children, the future of the community. One of the needs we identified was that the teenagers often cannot attend high school because they can’t afford the 50 cents bus ride to and from the town where the school is, nor the necessary school supplies. So …partnering with CRIPDES ( Association for the Development of El Salvador) we have created a fund that will allow students to access the monies for this purpose specifically and then have them give back to their community in reciprocation. A win-win for all!

I have purchased LOTS of BRACELETS from El Salvador and when you hire me for an event, I will bring some with me and set them out for sale at the back of the room. It is a no- pressure, free-will offering, nothing is priced, take what you like – pay what you like and all monies go towards our BraceLETS Change fund – so we can continue to help one person at a time.

Thank you for your support of our work! If you would like more information about attending a Project El Salvador Mission or making a tax deductable donation please contact Dennis Kuzenko
