What If All My Followers Donated Just $10? You May be Surprised.

I have precisely 3,154 followers on Twitter.  What if every one of them donated just $10 to the Finding Corte Magore project?  We’d raise enough money ($31,540) to buy a panga, outfit it with a teacher(s) and enough school supplies to keep our floating educational barge on the water for one full year – delivering education to the remote indigenous regions of the South Caribbean Coast Autonomous Region (RACCS) in Nicaragua. CEDEHCA – the human rights organization we are aligned with – can traverse this region daily, serving some of the world’s most poor who currently have no access to school or books or learning supplies.

Our educational barge will depart right from our own dock at our 29-acre island on Corte Magore at Hog Cay – Bluefields, Nicaragua.

What if you could be a part of something great like that? We are currently looking for a corporate sponsor for our educational barge, but just $10 can make all the difference in the world. Please go to our website and click the PayPal link at the top make your $10 (or any amount you can give or afford) tax-deductible donation to our California Benefit Corp and that money will flow to our joint partnership with Ambassador Campbell on our 29-acre island of Corte Magore at Hog Cay, Nicaragua. You can make a difference by contributing now.

the Finding Corte Magore project

Author: Tonia Allen Gould

Tonia Allen Gould is the CEO of Tagsource, a 25-year-old Consumer Promotions and Marketing Agency, she's founder of the Finding Corte Magore Project, and children's book author of Samuel T. Moore of Corte Magore. Here, on this blog, she writes about whatever compels her at the moment. In her book, she explores the concepts of perseverance, hard work, bullying, and finding a place to call home for young readers. The impetus of the Finding Corte Magore project stems from Tonia's background - growing-up below the poverty line, in rural Indiana. A product of Indiana's foster care system, she is the first to say that books, a solid education and teachers, taught her there was a life for herself, tangible and within her reach, she just had to reach out and grab it. After publishing her first book, she decided she wanted to find an island and make it real, by naming it after the fictional place in her book, “Corte Magore,” and utilize it for social and environmental good. Today, the 29-acre island of Corte Magore at Hog Cay, Nicaragua- through a joint partnership with Ambassador Francisco Campbell, the Nicaraguan Ambassador to the U.S.-will be utilized by the Finding Corte Magore Project to work to keep Nicaraguan children in school. The Finding Corte Magore Project works virtually to connect a global community of students and institutions with the plight of educationally and economically repressed Nicaragua. The project involves showcasing and managing one of the country's own beautiful islands in its educational and environmental initiatives. The goal of The Finding Corte Magore Project is to create social awareness coupled with building a sustainable, positive and long-term educational impact on the country's children who have an on-average fifth grade dropout rate. In addition, Tonia is a promotional products industry veteran. She is the founder and CEO of 25-year old Tagsource, LLC (AKA TAG! The Creative Source). She currently serves on the BOD for the Specialty Advertising Association of California (SAAC), is an "Industry Voice", a recipient of a PPAI Golden Pyramid, and has been named on ASI’s Hot List. She is the recipient of Supplier of the Year award through the Women’s Business Enterprise Council West, as nominated by Fortune 500 companies.
