    Dear supporters of the Cotzal Weaving Cooperative, 

    Well.... land purchase in Guatemala is not a quick or easy process, but I'd like to finally confirm the legal purchase of the land that you all supported. Thanks from the bottom of all of our hearts. The land is already in cultivation with food and herbs. 

    If you were eligible to select a gift please send your mailing address to schwartzmateo@gmail.com  !!! The gifts that the Cooperative would like to share with you have arrived in the USA. Please send me your complete mailing address and I will send it out to you asap. 

    In solidarity, 

    Matt, Emy, Ariel, and the Cotzal Weaving Cooperative

    We made it to $4000! More impressively, 35 individuals have contributed, showing a widespread and heartwarming demonstration of solidarity with Cotzal.  

    However, our work is not done. We are going to shoot for $5000. The extra money will pay for the website fees, wiring fees and all of the extra costs associated with purchasing land. One week left. Please continue to spread the word about the cause of these women. Thank you dearly from Guatemala.

    Wow, we are on our way to meeting the 4K goal!  A huge thank you to all the supporters of the Cotzal Weaving Coop.  Please continue to spread the word. We have 12 days left and are really hoping to beat our goal. Any extra money raised will be dedicated to pay off the website and wire transferring fees !Gracias!
