Dear Friend,


Many thanks to everyone who showed their support for CoEd at Fall Fiesta: Mysteries of the Mayan Calendar, and helped create a fun evening for a good cause. Read on to see the immense impact of your generosity!




Fall Fiesta a Success! 

Supporters Show Their Giving Spirit


CoEd friends show their support by participating in a silent auction.


Thanks to everyone who attended Fall Fiesta: Mysteries of the Mayan Calendar and helped make it a success! More than 250 of you gathered to raise funds for and create awareness of CoEd's efforts in Guatemala. We are beyond grateful for your generosity in bidding on live and silent auction items and buying raffle tickets. (Congrats, Tony Stieritz you and your nine best friends are going to Seabrook Island, SC!) You helped raise over $95,000 to help break the cycle of poverty in Guatemala!


Thanks again to the committee members, volunteers, and sponsors who made the event possible!


Read about the top six reasons this year's Fall Fiesta rocked on our blog.



Meet Molly Tyger 

A CoEd Supporter Superstar


Molly delivers school supplies to CORP students in Guatemala.


Here at CoEd we are extremely lucky to have such enthusiastic supporters whose passion motivates us and others to continue working to break the cycle of poverty in Guatemala. One of these Superstar Supporters is Molly Tyger, whose list of CoEd involvement includes Event Chairperson for Fall Fiesta 2012 and co-chair in 2011.


We are so grateful for the amount of time, energy, and dedication that Molly has put in to extend CoEd's reach in Guatemala. What (or who) would inspire Molly to get so involved with CoEd? Read last week's blog post to find out!



Purchase with a Purpose 

Ten Thousand Villages Shopping Day to Benefit CoEd


As you get ready to do your holiday shopping and make purchases throughout the year, don't forget that Amazon donates 6% of your purchase price to CoEd when you use our special link! Without adding extra cost to you, it is a great way to shop and help provide educational opportunities to Guatemalan students.


In addition to Amazon, we now have a new way for you to support CoEd through your holiday shopping! On November 17th, our friends at the fair trade nonprofit retailer Ten Thousand Villages will be donating 15% of sales to CoEd's programs. Not only will you find unique, handcrafted gifts, but you ll help students in Guatemala, too!


Ten Thousand Villages Community Shopping Benefit Day

Hope to see you there!
