For the second year in a row, and for its 50th anniversary, Juannio auctioned off a one-of-a-kind pair of earrings especially designed by Alessa Designs. This yearly event, one of the most prominent and anticipated charity events in Central America, has one single purpose: to raise funds for the Instituto Neurológico de Guatemala.

Today I want to share with you my most recent collaboration with Alessa Designs which benefits Fundaniñas- a nonprofit organization here in Guatemala that provides a permanent home to abused, abandoned and "high risk" girls between the ages of 3-20, and gives them the foundations for a happier and brighter future.

Last Thursday my husband and I had the honor of attending an unforgettable charity dinner benefiting FunSEPA and Benemérito Comité Pro Ciegos y Sordos de Guatemala, a private, social and educational non-profit organization that aids those with hearing and vision impairment, that in all honesty, brought a high dose of perspective into our lives.

A lot has happened in these last couple of weeks. First, the Northeast of the U.S was hit by Hurricane Sandy leaving millions of people without electricity (for a very long period of time), billions of dollars in damage and a sad number of fatalities. Then, the elections came - God knows how intense these elections were - and although I love politics, I was admittedly relieved when it was over.

Some times we're reminded of just how much evil is present in our world. The unfairness of life, and the injustice of many governments, often break my heart and drives me to tears.

As you know, my husband participated in the first project of a new campaign here in Guatemala called "Rompe El Ciclo." This campaign was created to bring the people together, joining their forces and allowing them to focus on a common goal at a time, promoting (and hopefully, achieving) change in Guatemala.

How would you like to shop all sorts of designer items while helping those in need? Wouldn't that be fabulous? Well, now you can!

FunSEPA is having a Bazaar from October 26th to the 28th at Zona Pradera, where you'll find gorgeous designer clothes, shoes and accessories for a fraction of the price, and lot's and lot's of toys! Perfect for the upcoming holidays, wouldn't you agree?

This morning I had the honor of attending the inauguration of "The Housewife Wannabe" & Diquiva (my hubby's company) computer classroom at the Escuela Oficial Urbana Mixta "Mateo Flores," a public school located in Mixco, Guatemala, and the very first of the many we hope to help with the support of FunSEPA.
