Dear Friends,

It’s easy to spend over $3 for your latte, mocha or just plain coffee every morning without thinking twice.  But in the hands of Shared Beat, that coffee money turns into vitamins, medications and improved health for underserved Guatemalan children. 

Tuesday, November 27th is Giving Tuesday—a global day dedicated to giving back. It kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their end-of-year giving. We hope that you’ll choose to support Shared Beat on this special day.  Even a small amount helps.

·       Your $25 donation provides vitamins to five children for one year.
·       Your $50 donation pays for glasses for one student.
·       Your $100 donation means a one-month scholarship for a nursing student.
·       Your $250 donation ensures a one-month supply of medication and supplies at a clinic.

The Shared Beat kids live in a country that you might not have visited.  But know that because of you, our dedicated volunteers are there tending patients, dispensing medications, providing dental and vision care—offering hope and healing.

This basic medical outreach, which we might take for granted, significantly alters the lives of these kids—improving their health, advancing their education, making them happy.  

And by funding training for local healthcare workers, your gift leaves a legacy that extends for years to come.

On this day of National Giving, we ask you again for your help.  Would you be willing to make a special Giving Tuesday donation of $25, $50, $100 or more? Or sign up to make a monthly recurring donation?

We simply can’t do it without you.  Donate today via the secure Shared Beat website or by calling 830-331-2691. 

Your donation enriches and brightens the existence of the people we serve. The Shared Beat volunteers and Board of Directors thank you for your generous support.
