Why is it important to teach your kids to care about the world? To leave home? To get out of their comfort zone? 
This week I took my twelve-year-old on a learning tour to Guatemala with Care International. The trip was amazing, and I’ll be posting more about it in the coming days. On one of our many excursions, we visited a primary school, and helped distribute a nutritional protein-rich product designed and donated by the PepsiCo Foundation. Huck washed his hands alongside kids who’d only just recently been taught this simple proper hygiene. They played soccer, and giggled as they tried to overcome the language barrier. Huck got out his drawing pad and with the universal language of art, sketched a picture of a boy with a soccer ball, while the kids surrounded him watching. When he was finished, he gave it to one of them, who ran and stuck it onto a green paper tree on the wall in their classroom. This school is thriving thanks to the great work @careorg is doing here. Their mission is to end global poverty, especially through empowering women and girls. The vital work that they do helps communities like this one become more stable and secure, which has a far-reaching affect throughout the world, including in the United States. 
Huck loved exploring the school. I found him behind a desk in the front row of the classroom, raising his hand and participating in a game of nutritional bingo, designed to teach healthy living habits. Behind him was his drawing, part of their tree now, part of their community.  I went up for a closer look because I hadn’t seen the finished product. He’d written at the top of the page, “Gracias mis hermanos” (Thank you my brothers). We’re home now, safe and sound, with plenty of food and running hot water and outside space to play. And we are grateful. But Huck is already asking me when we can go back to visit Guatemala. Those kids matter to him now too.

Reflecting today on Sandra. On our last excursion with Care International in Guatemala last week, we visited the first co-op in the country owned and operated by women producers. Sandra helps run the place, and we got to hear a little bit of her story.  She used to be very poor. She used to wear a tattered dress, and couldn’t afford medical care for her son when he was critically ill. With the help of her neighbors, she mixed together herbs and nursed him back to health. When that same child started school, he needed a uniform, so she sewed one for him herself because buying one was out of the question. 
Now Sandra uses her industriousness to head up this farm just outside of Guatemala City. The tears in her eyes start to shine as she shifts from telling us the sad part of her life story to telling us the happy part. Today she has two children, and she provides a good life for them. She loves her work, overseeing a plant that processes squash and beans and baby zucchini, among other things. In fact, Sandra may have already helped to feed your children. You can find her farm’s vegetables in the states at Costco, Sam’s Club and Trader Joe’s (look for the ones from Guatemala). Sandra wouldn’t have been given this opportunity without the investment of @careorg. As I listened to her speak, Sandra’s tears became my own. Yes, there are people struggling in the U.S., and they need to be supported too (and we are working on that right now specifically at @thestore_nashville). But also women everywhere deserve dignity, respect and empowerment. And the ripple of this kind of global support eventually affects all of our lives, whether we realize it or not.

I spent the last two days on the Hill in Washington with @ritaangeltaylor and others advocating on behalf of women and girls, and discussing the programs @careorg has in over 90 countries worldwide to support them. We talked with lawmakers to encourage them to continue the global assistance fund (approximately 1% of the U.S. budget) for humanitarian as well as economic reasons. According to a government official at @usaid in Guatemala, we are spending tens of thousands of dollars to process a migrant at the border here and send them back, versus $1500 we could spend to empower them and help them thrive in their own countries. This is only part of the piece of the puzzle in fixing the border crisis, but it is an important piece. Now is not the time to cut off funding in the Northern Triangle. #fightwithcare 🙏🏻🌸✌🏻.

Check out this video that on the 5th anniversary of the Syrian crisis, CARE wanted to send messages of hope to Syrian children. 
So they asked recipients of the original CARE Packages — once child refugees themselves, in war-ravaged Europe after World War II — to write letters to Syrian children whose families have fled to Jordan. The result has been some deeply moving connections between people who, though separated by decades and distance, share so much. 
They all know the pain of being ripped from their homes by war — and how it feels to receive a special delivery from a stranger who cares in America.
