Please join me in supporting an incredible cause! I am heading to Guatemala in April to volunteer on a medical and humanitarian mission with the Guatemala Healing Hands Foundation. I am fundraising to support local families as they go through surgeries, therapeutic activities and to help GHHF with community service projects to improve local lives and livelihoods. The trip dates are: April 11 - 21, 2024, and it is the organization’s 20th anniversary!
