700+ Christmas Tamale Food Baskets distributed by Mayan Families in Guatemala!

Well, it has been a long day. It is now 7.45pm and we are just closing up the office. Some of the staff started at this morning. The line was already forming outside our office for people who had come to get a Tamale basket.

We have given out over 700 baskets today to families who were so happy to receive this wonderful gift of food.

At this time of night, we still have about a 100 people gathered outside our front gate hoping that they will be able to receive a basket. Lots of women holding babies, little ones pressed tight against their mother's legs, children who are tired from standing for hours...crying to go home.

We love giving out the baskets of food for families but this is the hardest part, the people who are waiting and hoping to get a basket and we just do not have enough for them.

Thank you to everyone who has donated and made it possible for these families to be able to celebrate Christmas.

If you would like to give a basket of food, it is not too late, please send a donation to and go to our Holiday Basket link. It is just $35 for a big basket of food.
