Bob Hentzen: Honor his life, support a dream

“You are capable of far more than you think you are.” – Bob Hentzen

As thousands around the world gather to honor the life of our President and Co-founder Bob Hentzen, we are reminded just how powerful a dream can be.

Bob dreamed of a world free from the bonds created by poverty, a world where childhood dreams become reality.

Now it’s our turn to show Bob just how much he impacted not only our lives, but thousands of lives around the world.

In honor of his life, his family is asking you to “get behind these children.” Support our friends living in poverty through sponsorship or donations to our scholarship fund.

He walked with the poor. He believed in the poor.

Support a child today and continue his dream.

Celebrations of his life:

A funeral service will be held at the Hermano Pedro office in Guatemala at 10 a.m. on Saturday, October 12, 2013. His body will be laid to rest at the San Lucas Toliman Cemetery.

At this time, a memorial mass is tentatively scheduled to be held in Kansas City later this month. We will continue to update you as arrangements are made.
