It takes two people to make an impact – you and me. Together, we can make our world a better place.
Giving kids in marginalized communities an opportunity to thrive is one of our most important missions.
This year, I partner with various organizations and individuals in Ecuador to help improve the lives of young Afro-Ecuadorians. The future is looking bright because their success is our success. It is such an honor to get to work on such an important project.
In Africa we have a saying, It takes a village to raise a child!
In collaboration with The Fundacion Afro-Americana, we kicked off our youth mentorship program. It is such an honor to get to work on such an important project. Giving kids in Afro-Ecuadorian communities an opportunity to thrive is one of our most important missions.
This year, as we kick off our support for these children, we had a successful mentorship program with 13 handpicked youth ambassadors from an Afroecuadorian community in Ecuador. This will be followed by a Christmas party this coming week where we will spend time with 75 children and youth from Afro Ecuadorian communities.
It’s so easy to do something small and make such a big difference.
As part of this initiative, we will be giving each child a Box of Joy ( www.boxesofjoy.foundation). These boxes contain a t-shirt with a motivational message, toiletries, art and stationery supplies, a book, and a personal letter from a sponsor.
Every little helps, and we’re honored to get to do our part in providing children access to opportunities, education, love, and resources they need to succeed.
A big thank you to all our partners, sponsors, and supporters. We have secured 52 boxes of joy and donations towards food and refreshments. We appreciate your support.

Christmas is almost here, and it’s time to think about what gifts you’re going to give to your friends and family members. But this year, why not consider giving the gift of Christmas to underprivileged children. It might be just what they need to lift their spirits during the holiday season, and it will help them have a happier holiday than if they had received nothing at all. By giving back this year, you can celebrate the holidays knowing that you’ve made someone else happy, which just might be the most valuable gift of all.
For most families, Christmas isn’t just about receiving presents—it’s also about giving them. We are part of a program called Boxes Of Joy in collaboration with the Fundacion Afroamerica in Guayaquil, Ecuador. This year we will deliver Christmas presents to 75 Afro-Ecuadorian kids who might not otherwise get any.
These boxes contain a t-shirt with a motivational message, toiletries, art and stationery supplies, a book, and a personal message from a sponsor. The cost of each box is just $25.
Looking for a meaningful way to spend this festive season? One easy way is to give gifts and supplies to underprivileged Afro Ecuadorian communities that aren’t getting much help from others. And if you’re wondering why your donation is so important, consider just how much joy one present can bring—and multiply that by hundreds.
Let’s change lives together!
