Hi guys,

All of us have been affected by COVID-19. But here in Ecuador, things are truly desperate. The number of homeless and/or hungry families on the street has skyrocketed in recent weeks.

The government is unable to provide any resources to assist these people. The government has stopped paying all salaries to nearly every government entity. There are no pensions being paid. There are no medical benefits being honored.

All typical commerce is almost entirely shutdown, in fact the country has been in complete lockdown where there is a curfew and very strict restrictions on when and who can leave their house.

There is no place for many people to find work, and some of them simply are not surviving and are falling through the cracks. The cracks, in fact, have become enormous.

We're going to help

For the month of June, futures io is running a Journal Challenge contest. What I want to do is tie in with that event, and donate ten meals for every new journal that is created/posted to on FIO during June. This will be donated by my wife and I, on behalf of the members of futures io. If you wish to help personally, please see below.

Journal Challenge thread:



So at the end of June, we will calculate how many journals participated in the event, and then we'll purchase the food and distribute it to those that are most in need (on the streets).

My wife and I started a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organized called Oasis Americas last year. This is our charity specifically for helping those in need, both in North America and South America.

We will be accepting additional donations from anyone on futures io that wishes to donate towards this cause. All donations are tax deductible, and will go entirely towards the purchase of food for those in need, in this case to those here in Ecuador that we can safely reach and handout meals to.

We will follow-up in this thread to provide updates on the amount of food we've donated from the journal event, as well as additional donations received.

If you wish to donate, you can do so here using PayPal:



Your donation will be anonymous, unless you chose to make a post. I will be posting each donation here in the thread, but without names.

Thank you,
Mike

Every journal equals ten meals for the hungry.

I forgot to include the EIN for Oasis Americas: 83-3329746

Confirmation of charitable organization from the IRS:

https://apps.irs.gov/app/eos/displayAll.do?dispatchMethod=displayAllInfo&Id=6065115&ein=833329746&country=US&deductibility=all&dispatchMethod=searchAll&isDescending=false&city=&ein1=83-3329746&postDateFrom=&exemptTypeCode=al&submitName=Search&sortColumn=orgName&totalResults=1&names=&resultsPerPage=25&indexOfFirstRow=0&postDateTo=&state=All+States

You can use this EIN for your taxes to claim your donation as tax exempt.

Just as a side note, we get around 5 people per day ringing our outside gate looking for food. We've started giving them cans of tuna.

It's a really sad thing. These people are just walking the streets trying to find enough food for their family just for that day.

Last week, my wife was out buying groceries. A man literally tried to hand my wife his daughter and started crying, saying PLEASE TAKE HER she needs food, she needs a good life, I can't do it! I can't provide for her! Please help her! You take her and give her a good life!

This was a complete stranger, on the street, while my wife was buying vegetables. The daughter was around 2 years old. The man broke down and was in complete tears, almost having a panic attack.

It demonstrates how crazy things have become. We did help that man and we kept in contact with him, and the next day he had calmed down and apologized for his behavior, and said he would never give up his daughter. He was just so desperate in the moment because his family hadn't eaten in DAYS and he saw my wife in a nice Tahoe and knew his daughter would be cared for by her.

That is just crazy right? Please don't judge this man. He was just trying to feed his family.

Mike
