About a year ago we were asked by one of the doctors at
a public hospital in Ecuador if we could help her get funds
for a new vaccine that could be life changing for HIV+
children. In the past we have been involved with an
orphanage of HIV+ children so we said yes with out
even knowing how we were going to do it.
We were about to launch the Kon-Dor website and had
no funds ourselves, as entrepreneurs we knew it
was going to take time until we made money,
2 years maybe, but we also knew everything
is possible if you set your mind to it.
We created a GO FUND ME page to get the
$4,000 dollarswe needed for the vaccines,
most of it were donations from family and friends
but there were also some generous
strangers from around the world who donated
(how cool is that?!).
Its been a year and we managed to raise $1705,
not our goal, but still with the help of PFIZER Ecuador
we vaccinated 45 kids.
This vaccine is called PREVNAR 13 and it helps to
prevent pneumococcal infections.
We were fortunate enough to be present in the last
vaccination at a orphanage called ORPHAIDS, it was
such a beautiful experience seeing how brave
these kids are and how well they are growing
up despite their circumstances.
We learn more and more from these experiences
and we dream of the day that we don’t have to ask for
help but instead we have enough funds to do this and so
many other things we dream about.
Buy products that give back and that can make
a change,no matter how little you think this change is
it can mean the world to somebody else.
Again, we wanted to thank everyone who donated and
trusted us, we donated every single dollar to this cause
and can't wait to complete our goal and give this gift
to even more children.
Also, thank you everyone who has bought a
KON-DOR bag, with your purchase our dream of
giving back (BIG) is closer.
Here are some pics, we hope you enjoy and if you
donated enjoy even more because without you
this couldn’t have been possible.
PS- Our Go-Fund me page is still open and is still
receiving donations, it's never too late.
