We are former Quetzal Trekker volunteers who are raising money to buy Christmas gifts for underprivileged youth in Xela, Guatemala.

Quetzal Trekkers is a volunteer run, non profit, trekking agency located in Xela, Guatemala. They support EDELAC, a school for street children as well as Hogar Abierto, a dormitory that provides the basic needs for nearly 20 kids.

I was a part of Quetzal Trekkers for 9 months in 2009 and the experience changed my life. I am going to visit the kids of Hogar Abierto in December 2010 and am raising money to buy them Christmas gifts.

Anything you can give is greatly appreciated and will go a long way in helping provide these wonderful kids a moment of happiness during the holiday season.

UPDATE: I will be joined in this endeavor by Mel Emerson, former QT guide and great friend! This page will serve as a joint fundraising effort.

Thank you very much to all of those who have already donated!!! Your donations are greatly appreciated.
