A DREAM COME TRUE

Dear Friends, family and supporters


    I personally wanted to take this opportunity to THANK every single one of you for supporting me and signing the petition to stop the deportation of my sister and me.

    It's just unbelievable and overwhelming how incredible I have felt to find out that more than 11 thousand people have actually taken the time to add their names to a cause that not only me, but so many immigrants, are facing.

    As a result of all this experience, my sister and I decided to create a non-profit Foundation called "WE ARE HERE" to be able to pass along the support and help to other teenagers, just like me, with any kind of legal, economic and most important emotional help and support during this extensive and arduous process.

    For this reason I also ask from you, if possible, a small donation since we are raising funds for this amazing cause.

    Once again I THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart and will keep you informed on how our Foundation is doing.

    May God bless each and every single one of you and your families,

with lots of Love,

                                                        Daniela
