Every child deserves to dream, but in Ecuador dreaming is a privilege. Some children do not know when their next hot meal is going to be. Others study by candlelight, and many more lack the medicine they need to make it through the day. Often times, nonprofits become a home away from home for these children. We are honored to work with 5 excellent organizations that are serving 350+ vulnerable youth, covering their basic needs and giving them the chance to have a dream. Now, we want to show Ecuadorian children that dreams do come true, and we need your help to fulfill each one of them.

On #GivingTuesday, we will be launching the All Children Deserve to Dream Campaign! Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving celebrated by nonprofits, corporations, and donors that encourages people to do good. This year Giving Tuesday is December 3.

We will be using the GlobalGiving platform to raise funds for our campaign. GlobalGiving is promoting Giving Tuesday by providing over $500,000 in incentives for organizations that raise money on the platform during the 24 hours of December 3. Please help us fulfill the dreams of the children we serve and donate to the All Children Deserve to Dream Campaign on Giving Tuesday.

As part of our campaign, we interviewed children from our partner organizations and will be sharing their stories with you. We hope that you take a moment to get to know our children and their dreams. Over the next few weeks, we will publish their stories here.

Thank you for being part of Hearts of Gold and supporting the dreams of our children.
