Deerfield Beach, Florida – November 9, 2011 – St. Paul Lutheran School of Boca Raton, Florida; honors Delaney Hill and presents her with check to add to her fundraising effort. Delaney gave up birthday presents to raise money for people lacking clean safe drinking water and her fellow students and the school honored her by raising money for her cause. Each student made a small contribution for the right to dress down on Dress Down Day for Water, and combined they were able to raise $1070 bringing Delaney’s total to $2009. Delaney was presented with a check on October 19th just days before Guillermo Guzman started on a trip to South America followed by a trip to Amsterdam to attend the Aquatech show and continue spreading the word regarding the Foundation and its goals.
Inspired by Rachel Beckwith, the 9 year old who tragically died before reaching her goal, Delaney had set her goal at $300.
A special thanks to all the students at St. Paul, the parents, the staff, Deborah Bishop (Delaney’s teacher) and Janet Tumminello, the Dean of Students for joining in the effort to help people who desperately need clean water. Special thanks to a very special young girl, Delaney Hill, for being so generous and showing her philanthropic heart at such an early age. Delaney turned 11 on August 25th. Her parents must be so proud. Guillermo Guzman. Founder
