All I Want For Navidad

When we are young, we live with our dreams in our hands. Perhaps we place our dreams in our shirt pockets close to our hearts. We live for our dreams because, when young, there is no way that our dreams can not come true.

When we grow older we may decide to place our dreams on hold, for a bit, to do something that needs doing, in the hopes of coming back. Some of us make it back. Most of us, like me, never do.

The reasons for not making it back are unimportant. What matters is that we made the decision to turn away from our dreams. That is life. That is the decision that was made.

What destroys me inside is when a child isn’t even given the chance to dream. When circumstances take away the ability, the possibility for a child to dream. And frankly, what is childhood without dreams?

So, mis amigos, for this holiday season, I ask that you give what you can to an organization located here in DC named Bright Beginnings. You can read about what they do on their website, but in my words, they give children the chance to dream.

Every child should be able to dream. Every child.

If you can, donate through PayPal or donate through the Network for Good.

Tell them that El Guapo sent you.

Feliz Navidad.

Mucho Amor,

El Guapo

PS: If you are unable to give money at this time, that is ok. Keep them in mind when you can give a dollar or two. I'm sure they would love volunteers.

Thank you el guapo for bringing such a great organization to my attention. I am in the social work field, and I like to see what other cities have going on in terms of social services.
