Our Stories


We believe that our supporters are the best in the

world and these stories prove it. All our fundraisers are motivated

by the same aim: to support children

This is My Story

Ivan is a nine-year-old boy who traveled six hours to be seen by Drawing Alegria. Ivan is one of seven siblings, whose father makes less than $10 a day as laborer. Ivan was determined a good candidate for surgery, to be performed by the next Drawing Alegria mission. After a successful operation and with the help and support of his family, Ivan’s parents hope he can become a teacher. Ivan had the bright smile his father had wished for him since his birth.
