This summer, it's time once again to take on the challenge - the Summer Matching Challenge! With your help, we will raise $7,000 this summer which will then be MATCHED by a generous private donor to reach a total donation of $14,000! This is Abriendo Mentes' biggest fundraiser of the year, and it is critical that we meet our fundraising goals to ensure that we can continue to offer high quality education and community development programming to over 400 children and adults living in Playa Potrero and Brasilito, Costa Rica. Every donation you make brings us closer to one of our four fundraising milestones. Each milestone unlocks a wacky challenge that the Abriendo Mentes volunteers will complete. You can also get in on the fun by voting for your favorite nasty ingredients to include in our final challenge for our Directors: The Shocking Smoothie Surprise! Scroll down for details on this year's challenges and the link to donate via PayPal.
