This year Latin Media Group partnered with Ignite the Hearts Organization. Together, Founder of Ignite the Hearts, Brianna Fernandez and the Latin Media Group Team, created the Box of Love Challenge to help feed families during Thanksgiving. When they launched the challenge, they were shocked to see so many families and volunteers interested in helping out.
Brianna Fernandez shared her excitement on instagram and said, “Wow! How amazing, we now have 25 boxes in California alone that can go to Thomas Housing Shelter.”
Then Brianna got a call from her cousin, Carmen Rivera who saw the challenge and shared it with her community in Miami, Florida. Carmen gathered a group of people who were also inspired to give back and created 20 boxes for families in need at the Miami Rescue Mission. Because of Carmen, women and children coming out of domestic violence and homelessness now have a meal this thanksgiving. Shortly after that, Brianna was sent messages from people in the tristate área who also accepted the challenge.
On behalf of Latin Media and Ignite the Hearts, we just want to say thank you. Even with Covid, we were able to Ignite some hearts and really make a difference. That is ALL our team has ever wanted for this movement. And this was possible because of YOU!
United We Can Make A Difference!
