      When I heard that people in a very poor neighborhood in Kolkata are fasting from cigarettes and chai today to support JUNTOS, I was incredibly moved. I was with Joanna when she was 14 and said, "Mom, I am going to bring a group of dancers to Guatemala when I am 16." My response, "Why not wait." "No, Mom, I have already found my passion," Joanna said. And the rest, many of you have been a part of one way or another.

      As you, too, find your passions and invite others into that circle of creativity, friendship building, and connections, I highly encourage you to contribute to JUNTOS collective, and encourage your friends over the globe to do so. This is a new form of community, initiated and energized by emerging adults, who want to create friendships and hope across borders.

      As the word of Juntos on KickStarter begins to circle the globe, a group of inspired Indian youth and family members came together to pool their daily cigarette money, chai money, and food money to donate to Juntos. After watching the video clip they were moved to share what they had to make Joanna's project come to life! They might never meet Joanna or the Juntos dancers, let alone see a performance (until Juntos makes it to India), but their belief in this project goes beyond that matter. Please support Juntos and the wonderful work they do!
      With much love from Kolkata, India
