Other ways to help

You can help improve the lives of those in need in Guatemala by volunteering with Xela AID from the comfort of your own home! Here are some ideas. Interested? Contact us here: info@xelaaid.org

Plan a Fundraising Dinner:

Talk, Concert, Weaving Sale


The Directors of Xela AID and past participants are available to make a fun presentation to a group you arrange. That can include an introductory film and/or a PowerPoint presentation. We’ll talk about the work we do and opportunities to volunteer.

We often have one-of-a-kind weavings or other items made in Guatemala on hand that can be brought to sell. Donations from your event will be used to carry on the important work of Xela AID, and may be fully tax deductible.

Collect Materials and Assemble "Infant Packs"

In the poverty belt we work in, most children are born without even a blanket to call their own for many weeks after birth! Thanks to the efforts of Xela AID volunteers, we’ve provided infant receiving packages to poor mothers that contain a receiving blanket, cloth diaper, safety pins, socks, soft shoes, a unisex jumper, cap, soap and other combinations of baby essentials. You can collect and assemble the packs which are nicely contained in a gallon plastic bag, and we will deliver them on your behalf.

Tell People About Xela AID, and That We Can Use Their Help

You can help support Xela AID's by:

  • Referring people to the project to travel with us as volunteers, to support us with a donation or sponsor a child.
  • Signing yourself up, then forwarding our electronic newsletter to friends.
