Ecuador Update #3 – From FaceBug to Housing

Hello again! Just bringing you some more news.

We’ve so far raised $2,227!! 

That leaves us with just $300 to go to reach our goal and build six houses in Carlos’s community.

We’ve been planning with Manuel and Cristina and the materials for the houses are set to be brought down Saturday May 14th! We have a truck and since it’s already going in that directions it’ll be free!

This will be us may 14! PC: Manuel Pallares

So that leaves us a little under a week to raise about $300 for that last house! 

Remember that we do have a Stretch Goal of $3,000. If we make that, in addition to bringing food and water to the people who need it, we’ll use some materials to repair the school so that way kids can have class inside.


Without further ado, here’s me shoving all the bugs on my face. If you were entertained please consider donating to our cause. We’re almost there! Pledge $1 a bug I managed to shove on my face.
