Each Egg Secures a Meal

We are halfway through the Little by Little campaign week. Thanks to GlobalGiving, when you donate up to $50, your generosity will be matched at 50%. Our goal is to raise 20 – $50 donations, each donation will provide half a year of eggs to a child. Each egg is so important and helps secure a meal to our participants.

Meet Lucia, she has 5 children of which 2 are in our program. Her family struggles to keep up financially with the growing bellies in her house. Lucia works in the community by watching and cleaning houses whose owners are away. She is one of the first to arrive at the monthly health check-ins and egg distributions. Lucia shares that it is so important for her family to come every month because there are days when there is little food in the house – except for the eggs provided by StS. Despite their food insecurity, Lucia is very creative in her use of eggs in daily meals: cooking pancakes, baleadas, soups and more.

Little By Little, your act of kindness makes a BIG difference in the lives of our Hens Hatching Hope children. Help us reach our goal of 20 – $50 donations to benefit more children for half a year. Each egg secures a meal-a day for 1 child. We cannot accomplish our goal without you.


Thank you for your time and generosity,

Twin’s Favorite Food

This week, we are excited to campaign together with GlobalGiving during the Little by Little Campaign. With just $50, we can provide half a year of eggs to 1 child and our goal is to raise 20 – $50 donationsPLUS from today until Friday, GlobalGiving will match online donations up to $50 at 50%, making your donation go even further! Together you will help get eggs to even more children for half a year!

We share with you a story of twin sisters that highlights just how much one egg a day means to our program participants. Meet Rosa and Daisy, they are twin sisters to a single dad. Earlier this year their mother unexpectedly left the family, taking with her two of her four children. The twins were devastated and lost a lot of weight, yet their dad was determined to keep them healthy. He asked for help from two of his nieces in caring for the twins. Each niece cares for and knows all the preferences of one twin. They are among the first arrivals every month because the twins only eat “eggs, rice, beans and tortillas.” With the help of the eggs Sts gives them, the twins have been gaining weight after the trauma of losing their mother. 

No matter what challenges we or the children in our Hens Hatching Hope program face, positive change is possible Little by Little when we all come together. We are determined to continue helping children like Rosa and Daisy grow. That is why we are writing to you this week. Can you help us get half-a-year of eggs to more children?

Antonio’s Trade for School

Meet Antonio, a colegio bilingual track student. When the pandemic hit in 2020 he dropped out. Yet, I often saw him walking back his classmates from school – he stood out without a uniform. I did not think much of this, but on our director’s most recent trip she reported Antonio had returned to school! Nervous, but confident he sought our director to talk and she was surprised at how much his English had progressed. Antonio shared that he returned to study even after doing remedial classes and being put a year behind his peers. A school administrator also chimed in how Antonio had SOLD his phone to pay for his uniform and supplies. 

We could not believe how a teenager had persevered through so many setbacks and was still able to choose over and over again to keep studying. Antonio realized the value in continuing his bilingual education every time that he walked home with his peers.

That is why we need your help to raise funds for our education program to support students, who like Antonio may face many adverstities in our region, yet choose to keep going.

More than ever your donation means so much to us.

In solidarity,
