Adopt a Family
If you would like to make a big difference in the lives of AmaTierra’s staff members, please consider making a monthly donation for 3 to 6 months to our GoFundMe for one of our families.
When you donate, you can specify which family you’d like to support and for how many months going forward.
You can also let us know if you would like contact with that family via email or social media,
or by sending us notes to firstname.lastname@example.org that we can then pass on to them.
While GoFundMe does not have a recurring donation option, we will simply remind you each month.
At this time, August 2020 we have had to terminate 2 employees but are still helping them with bi-weekly supplies of food. The other 4 employees pictured here have been suspended but we are supporting them with donated funds and groceries. The Costa Rica government had promised around $230 per month to people who’d lost their jobs or were suspended. We went through all the hoops that a bureaucratic country set up, paid the lawyers to help us, but when we checked on the status of this relief money our hearts sank: We were number 5,000 on the list. We worried how these gentle, hard-working people would survive.
But you partnered with us, gave us all hope and donated to help put food on their tables and pay their rent. We are so very grateful.
Thank you for making our promise to them: “While we are with you, NOBODY will go hungry” a true statement.
Blessings to you. May you stay well, safe, happy and peaceful
–Jill and Bob Ruttenberg, owners of AmaTierra
