IT’S OFFICIAL! Beauty Beyond Borders will be joining Love Light and Melody and Ileana’s Smile in Managua, Nicaragua in June at their “Dia de Luz // Day of Light” event. This is a three-day event where we will be serving and celebrating alongside the families living in the Villa Guadalupe resettlement community from the La Chureca trash dump. In addition to the three full days of community cleanup and celebration through music, art, and nature, Beauty Beyond Borders will also work with as many individuals within the community as possible so they too can accept the #BeautyBeyondBorders challenge. When Beauty Beyond Borders made our first trip to Nicaragua, we worked with five students in Leon to create a collection of photos from each of them illustrating the true beauty of their country. This trip we have much larger goals. Instead of creating photo collections from five individuals, we would like to create one large photo collection from the entire community. This would consist of a single photo from each individual representing something of beauty to them, and the story behind the photo.
WE NEED YOUR HELP! In order to achieve this goal, we will need your help! Donations of working digital cameras of any kind. This means old cell phones, or anything else you have that can take a decent digital photo. These donations are imperative to this project succeeding. If you do not have an old camera to donate you can still support the project by donating to Beauty Beyond Borders using our page on StartSomeGood.com. Thank you all for your continued support!
