Recently Remitly, joined forces with Ana Patricia Gámez, host of Despierta América, to launch the #renovandopromesas campaign in benefit of the Fundación Apoyo Infantil foundation in the state of Sonora, Mexico.

During the campaign, we donated $20 was donated each time someone signed up to use Remitly to send money to Mexico for the first time. Over $8,000 dollars was raised during the duration of the campaign to benefit the foundation.

On April 21st, the Remitly team travelled to Sonora, Mexico to deliver the money and supplies to the children of FAI. Check out the video to see our amazing day:

The donations were used to cover the basic needs of the children in the foundation, including tables, chairs, computers, mattresses and a new stove that will replace one that stopped working recently. In addition to the donations from the campaign, the Remitly team in Seattle sponsored 24 boys and girls, and personally delivered clothes, shoes, and toys to them.

We want to thank YOU for making all of this possible. This campaign would not have been possible without your transfers to Mexico. The generosity and effort you show every time you send money to your loved ones in Mexico has now extended to the children in the FAI Sonora foundation.

From all of us at Remitly, thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
