Fasting for Ecuador


This coming Sunday (May 1), we are going to join in a fast with thousands of people in Ecuador, Peru, and Colombia who will be forgoing food for a day and donating their savings to the relief effort in Ecuador, as they just experienced a catastrophic earthquake on the coast. It will be a day of united compassion and prayer.

If you'd like to join in with us, please do! We'll be joined with you in spirit, and with thousands of people coming together to support those in need.

Thanks for your love,

Mara

P.S. My designer friends told me about these posters being sold for $20 by an ad agency called Wieden+Kennedy. They are raising money for Ecuador. An Ecuadorian from their firm designed the posters.

If you're looking for other ways to support the recovery effort:

  • Ecuador Cares, the orphanage non-profit here that we know personally, has been raising money to directly help individual families and children affected by the earthquake. We love and trust this organization explicitly. They have direct contacts and family members in the hardest hit areas and are providing baby formula, diapers, water, milk, canned tuna and beans, baby bottles, toilet paper, feminine products, hygiene supplies, flashlights, batteries, cooking utensils, blankets, and tarps. If you'd like to join in, you can make a donation HERE and write in that it's for the Earthquake Relief Fund. We donated a portion of the proceeds from our Body+Soul Camp that took place in Ecuador last week. 


Strong Ecuador!

  1. Desafortunadamente, los links en este blog estan ligados al gobierno corrupto de Ecuador. Flower patch farmgirl tiene una iniciativa diferente. Por favor ayuden sin usar entidades del govierno, solo privadas e iglesias.
    Unfortunately, the links requesting money are kinked to the ecuadorian government that is corrupt and funds will not go to help Ecuador. Flower patch farmgirl is helping tru compassion.com. Please help using private organizations not ecuadorian government.

    1. Thanks for writing, agree that there can be corruption in the donation process...but that link provides more resources than just going to the Ecuadorian Gov through bank transfers. Links to Red Cross, UNICEF and a few other relief sources are the first ones highlighted. We're not comfortable listing many smaller private organizations, other than the one we listed in our own post, because we don't know enough about them.

      Hope your own efforts at administering relief are successful.

    2. Yes Danny, help should be canalized thru Non Government Organizations.
      Please do not send money to government bank accounts.
      Please promoteother iniciatives that are not link to the corrupt Ecuadorian government. I am from Ecuador, and I see really is happening in my broken country. Pray for Ecuador.
