This is the story of Juan 7 years old and Maria 6 years old.
Take five minutes to watch their story here.
The outskirts of the city dump.
Six to seven hours, for food, plastic and recyclables to sell.
Sometimes we don’t eat… sometimes we do. One day we don’t eat… one day we do. This is the way it is. ~Juan
Sevenly and Food for the Poor team up this week to feed the hungry. I love Sevenly, not only do proceeds for their sales go to great causes, they invest in education. Each week they partner with a new organization and help spread the word about the work they are doing to make our world better and more just.
This week every item purchased feeds a child in Guatemala for two months.
This is the way it is.
That is true in so many places.
Though, it should not be.
