The idea of service has always been at the root of The Leather Guy, stemming from our owners community outreach and mission work.
We seek ways to incorporate their passion into our business and aim to raise awareness of people and organizations that may get overlooked. Through donations of our time and leather to raising funds with our customers’ help, we give back in our own small ways.
Currently, we are raising funds for Passion 4 Guatemala through our “Round-Up” program at checkout. If you can, consider rounding up your purchase to the nearest dollar and help us rebuild towns destroyed by natural disasters.
We hope you’ll take a moment of your time and check out the missions of these organizations that are so special to us.
A "Thank You" from Passion 4 Guatemala:
All of us at Sueño Canastas and Passion 4 Guatemala want to thank you so much for your continued donations and support of our project in Guatemala.
Last year in November our artisans and their entire village lost everything in devastating, back to back, hurricanes. Also destroyed in the flooding was our leather shop and use of our canasta shop. The leather shop lost absolutely everything! This all occurred after a very difficult year of COVID which greatly impacted our sales and our artisans work. Your donation of $2446.82 has been instrumental in helping us get back on our feet again and sustain this project through these difficult times.
Your donation allowed these artisans to be able to work more days a week so they could provide for their families and begin to replace some of the things that they lost in the floods. This work has empowered them to afford their education and gives them hope for a better future. Because the floods destroyed everything, including their homes, their cost of living has increased greatly because of rent and the need to purchase necessities. Your donation has allowed us to pick up the cost of their education, books and school supplies so they can continue to receive their education while providing for their families.
It is a blessing to watch hope growing in their hearts each day and we are so grateful to God and to people like you that have shown up in this difficult time to let them know they are not forgotten! Thank you so much for your sacrifice. You are making a huge impact in the lives of these artisans, their families and their village!
