The history of the Carlos González Foundation is born from the need of Carlos and his family to give back all the blessing they have received. That is why on 2014 they decided to bring this dream to life and start to work for youth. 

Here’s a little recap of the most recent events that were held in Venezuela and the US to bring forward a wonderful project that benefits kids in sports and health fitness.

The Carlos González Foundation brings “hope” to La Guajira

The Carlos Gonzalez foundation donated 500 thousand dollars in medical supplies, among them, beds, wheel chairs, and diapers. Indonesia de Gonzalez, vice-president of the foundation, was in charge of opening the container in which the supplies where transported, which caused more than 300 people to gather in the square to greet her before sun down. 

Between tears and applauds, the Wayuu families thanked Carlos Gonzalez´s wife, who wore a traditional Guajira dress and greeted all those who saw her grow in her hometown La Guajira. “I am very happy; I can’t speak because I’m overwhelmed with emotion. This is a milestone, a dream of the Carlos Gonzalez foundation, one we have dedicated a lot of work to”. 

This donation of medical supplies is the first given to the Venezuelan Guajira on behalf of this foundation that is 2 years old. “It’s the first of many we will do in Venezuela, because knowing that lives can be saved with this is just priceless.
