Jennifer Nettles teams with the Shalom Foundation: Watch the mini-feature on her trip to Guatemala here!
From the pen of Jennifer Nettles...
Five years ago I was introduced to The Shalom Foundation. Shalom is an organization that works to aid the people of Guatemala in the areas of health care, nutrition, housing and education. While many of you know that I have supported Shalom for several years now, you may not know that you also have been supporting Shalom.
For the past four years, Kristian and I have donated a dollar to Shalom from every single ticket purchased to one of our concerts. So if you've come to see one of our shows, you have danced and sang and rocked your way into some good karma, my friends!
You have contributed to houses for families living in tin shacks with dirt floors. You have aided in the purchase of food for children who otherwise would not have eaten. You have allowed books and scholarships to be provided to children who would not have been able to go to school and learn. You have purchased a children's surgery hospital where kids with life-altering illness go to receive procedures and care that they would never be able to find or afford in their country.
On my last visit to Guatemala, I wanted to make something to show you what Shalom is all about, and to show you the help and blessings to which you have contributed. Our videographer, Valarie Bienas, along with her wonderful team, have put together a piece here to share with you. My hope is that you will become motivated to share it with others. If you are interested in learning more about Shalom or how you might continue to help, visit www.theshalomfoundation.org. I hope you enjoy!
