To raise $5,000 for a charity providing free education to slum children in Columbia.The fund will help the charity set up a kitchen and running water at school. Once this is done they can be registered by the government as a school & with that comes access to funding and much needed resources, such as government teachers and books.Additional benefits are they plan to start a meal program to cook & provide nutritious breakfasts to children who receive no breakfast at home.It will also allow for nutrition classes to happen within the facility and allow it to be utilised outside of school hours as a community centre to further educate the adult population.Who Are We? 
Hugs For Change- is a project started by Natalia Dewiyani to allow people to reconnect with each other through hugging and receive a $1 (or more) donation for every hug. Her dream is to collect one million hugs in her lifetime and to donate the money given to her foundation to a variety of grass roots charities in need and raise awareness of social heroes around the world. The project now has a large team of hug ambassadors making a difference through simple acts of kindness. Our first milestone of $5000 will go to the Yellow Butterflies Foundation. 

Our partner charity:

The Yellow Butterflies Foundation/ Fundacion Mariposas Amarillas (YBF)- is a grass roots charitable organisation which has built and staffed a school providing much-needed access to education for a community of 800,000 people living below the poverty line in Santa Marta, Colombia.
