the people who make a difference in the lives of others. What we are
most thankful for, all year-round, is you. Your support gives Guatemalan children hope for a
brighter future. See for yourself
how excited we get when we have good news to share about how you, our
supporters, are investing in education!

- Jon and
Julia did NOT register at Target
Then where, do you ask, were they registered? At CoEd,
of course! Rather than registering for kitchen utensils and bedsheets, Jon and Julia have raised

Want to help them reach their goal of $10,000? visit their page on CoEd's website.
Thanks, Jon and Julia, for using your wedding to make an
impact. Your generosity is providing countless children in Guatemala
the chance to break the cycle of poverty. You truly are CoEd
