There is a large scale urban phenomenon that is viewed in society as a threat, which predominately occurs in third world countries. Street kids in Latin America are not a moral threat to society, but rather a sad reflection of an amoral society. There is no one answer to solve the problem but the message is clear. To help these children they need to be given better opportunities for a higher quality life and success.
The first step to help these children is to help the community. CALLES supports and spreads the word of local charities with outreach programs in the Latin America area. When an individual donates a sum of money of any of the charities, they are received by a bracelet of the specific cause they support. Contained in the packaging are simple instructions on the app, which informs the person of events, success stories, and how their money is being used to the cause.

Guatemala : Country of Eternal Spring
This artist book explores my personal geography: a place that has helped to make me who I am. Guatemala, a country that prospers in culture (among many other elements), is home.
It takes form as a simple box, but once opened it collaspes into a pyramid similar to the ones the Mayans made in Tikal. There are four containers, each categorized and containing sentimental valued objects from my trips to Guatemala.
The base of the pyramid contains Stephen S. Hall's essay "I, Mercator", reading it helped me go through a journey understanding what home meant to me.
The box holds four containers, each categorized and containing objects of sentimental value from my trips to Guatemala.
The containers not only supply factual text of each category, but my own words of how I obtained these objects.
