South Florida Migrant Farmer Community Fundraiser

Sacred Space founder, Karla Dascal and her partner, Gingi Beltran are raising funds to help the migrant farmer community, which was gravely impacted by Hurricane Irma.  Already among the poorest members of South Florida’s residents, these farmers have lost their homes as well as the crops that bring them employment and feed their families.  Due to the destruction, there will be no harvest for at least a year and no means of income for these workers. Consider helping these people who are in desperate need.

To make a donation, follow this link: https://donate.sachamama.org/campaign/gingis-b-day/c146075 

The Sacred Space has generously agreed to match donations up to $5,000. No amount is too small or great. The deadline for donations is Friday, September 22, 2017.
