A special kind of birthday gift


For her ninth birthday, Aleah asked for a special kind of gift: school supplies for Common Hope students in Guatemala. Aleah and her family started this tradition a few years ago: every other year for her birthday, she asks for donations to a cause of her choice.

Aleah was born in Guatemala and adopted when she was eight months old, so this year, she wanted to donate to children in Guatemala.

Thanks very much to Aleah for your generosity and concern for children in Guatemala.
