Heroes of Generosity / Héroes de la generosidad


“A hero is somebody who is selfless, who is generous in spirit, who just tries to give back as much as possible and help people.” –Debi Mazar

There are definitely some heroes among us. With the help of the students, staff, and friends of Instituto Estelar, we were able to come together and help a family in need. A couple months ago, we posted a blog about Vera and her house that leaks and floods with every heavy rainstorm. Vera is a student and staff member of the school as well as a single mother of two beautiful children. In June she asked for help with the expensive repairs and over the past months many bighearted people have been generously contributing.

Donations not only came from Costa Rica, but from abroad as well. Last week the goal amount was reached and on Saturday afternoon we gave Vera 170,000 colones (about $320)! She was thankful and amazed at the kindness of both friends and of people that she has never met. Many thanks to the heroes that made this happen by giving what they could to improve someone else’s life!

Vera will be taking pictures of the materials that she buys as well as the finished house. We are excited to see the finished product and we will be sharing pictures with all of you!

“Un héroe es alguien que es desinteresado, que es generoso en espíritu, que sólo intenta devolver tanto como sea posible y ayudar a la gente.” – Debi Mazar

Definitivamente  hay algunos héroes entre nosotros. Con la ayuda de los estudiantes, personal y amigos de Instituto Estelar, hemos sido capaces de unirnos y ayudar a una familia necesitada. Hace un par de meses publicamos un blog sobre Vera y su casa que tiene filtraciones e inundaciones con cada aguacero. Vera es un estudiante y miembro del personal de la escuela, es una madre soltera de dos hermosos hijos. En junio pidió ayuda con las costosas reparaciones y en los últimos meses muchas personas generosas han ido aportando.

Las Donaciones no sólo vinieron de Costa Rica, desde el extranjero también. La semana pasada la cantidad de la meta fue alcanzada y el sábado por la tarde le entregamos a Vera 170.000 colones (unos $320). Ella estaba agradecida y sorprendida con la bondad de ambos amigos y de gente que nunca la ha conocido. ¡Muchas gracias a los héroes que hicieron que esto sucediera dándole lo que pudieron para mejorar la vida de esta persona!

Vera va a tomar fotos de los materiales que compra así como la casa acabada. ¡Estamos muy contentos de ver el producto terminado y estaremos compartiendo fotos con todos ustedes!
