Every year in February, Heroes Gate encourages its kids to donate and raise money toward our Love Makes Cents initiative. This yearly campaign focuses on helping kids in need around the world. In the past, we’ve partnered with various ministry organizations including COFHED in Haiti and Nibakure Children’s Village in Rwanda. We’ve been blessed and excited to see kids participate wholeheartedly and give generously over the years as we’ve raised money for necessities such as school supplies, seeds and equipment for a community garden, materials for a bridge to allow kids safe travels to and from school, and even solar panels to provide much-needed electricity in a remote area.
This year, we’re honored to be partnering with Esperanza Viva Children’s Home in Puebla, Mexico. Donations to this year’s Love Makes Cents will go toward providing the kids at Esperanza Viva with new bedding, pillows, and other bedtime necessities. That’s why our name for this year’s Love Makes Cents drive is Sweet Dreams. After all, sleep is important for everyone, especially kids, and with so many of the kids at Esperanza Viva coming from rough backgrounds, we want to do what we can to help them snuggle in at night and get a good night’s rest.
Kids in Elementary received cardboard banks in which to put their donations over the month of February, and Preschoolers had the option to grab a bank, as well, on their way through the hallways this past Sunday. Banks will be availbe this coming Sunday, as well, for those who were unable to grab them on Sunday. We’re asking for banks and other donations to be returned by Sunday, February 22nd.
