 For GUAA Gives 2014 we chose the San Francisco based organization, One Child.

We want to thank GUAA for the wonderful gift of $1,667.00 that you gave to OneChild.
It was an unexpected gift for which we are so very grateful.  With your additional financial assistance,
we have had the good fortune to provide new clothing, shoes, school
and dental supplies, and books to over 5,500 children since our start in 2001.  
Giving self-esteem to underprivileged children is the greatest gift we can give them.  
Without that, they will have a very hard time succeeding in life.  OneChild has always
been my dream but you are the ones who make it possible for us to continue year
after year.  You bring so much joy to, not only the children, but the parents as well. 
Again, thank you for your generosity.
  Bernadine F. Dutra
