Skiing for a cause
Aidan and Micaela Gayner and their dad Steve, skied every mountain in Argentina, covering a total of 1800 miles and 20 hills. This American family raised $3,400 from supporters and merchandise sales which they donated to Cruzada Patagónica, a nonprofit which supports integrated development of rural communities in northwestern Patagonia.
Running to give back
Claudio González returned to Argentina on a business trip after 20 years in the United States. His excitement about returning home changed when he was exposed to the harsh reality of the villas he traveled through. He decided he wanted to give something back to the children of his country, but didn’t know how until he found HelpArgentina. Through HelpArgentina he decided to support the Fundación Pupi by turning his participation in the New York City Marathon into a fundraising event. Through his efforts he raised $2,000, which the foundation used to support its services providing low-income children with educational support and recreational activities.

Anyone can host an event big or small - in your house, in a restaurant, in a club, anywhere you want. The goal is to get people together for a fun time while helping an Argentine social cause. Invite your friends, relatives, neighbors and colleagues for dinner, a drink, or any other activity. The important thing isn’t the size or type of event, but that people come together, learn about an issue, and support your cause.

Jon and Victoria were married outside of Buenos Aires.
Working with HelpArgentina they invited their friends and family to make a donation in their honor to the Fundación Tzedaká instead of giving them a gift.
Their initiative raised $1,100 and Vicky commented: “We hope that other couples are inspired to do something similar at their weddings”.
