Ten Reasons to Donate to Causes for Change:

  • Guilt-free donation: You can feel good about donating to a charity that actually uses donations for the work it’s supposed to do; not payouts for executives.
  • The entire staff is made up of volunteers.  No one takes a paycheck, including the CEO, Zully JF Alvarado.  Volunteers pay their own way on Mission Trips.
  • You will become a part of a growing community committed to sustainable change.
  • Positively affect the lives of women, children, families and persons in a lasting way.
  • We’re not affiliated with any religion or denomination.  We’re committed to doing good, regardless of personal beliefs.
  • Causes sets up new infrastructures that continue after Causes leaves the area, eliminating dependency of the locals on outside aid.
  • You’ll help Causes expand to the next level and do even more good, for even more people in need.
  • You will help inspire dignity, hope and pride in impoverished communities throughout Latin America.
  • Hey we’re the little guy, help us out wouldya?  In a world full of Goliaths, we’re the Davids, flinging rocks at inequalities suffered by persons with disabilities and deep in poverty.
