This year, Food Love 2 Go is spreading the love with more than just their desayunos sorpresas (surprise breakfasts), they are also creating red-themed floral arrangements with that tropical touch Miami is known for.

Food Love 2 Go is offering some special Valentine’s Day displays to start the day right.

Who wants to treat their special chikkibaby to this kind of breakfast in bed?

Food Love 2 Go was originally started on Valentine’s Day in 2015 by Venezuelan entrepreneur Andrea Zerpa.

The company’s busiest days are Valentine’s Day, obviously, as well as Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. The idea of gifting someone breakfast in bed is good for multiple reasons. Mainly, it’s because you don’t create a mess to make the breakfast in bed so that’s a plus.

Zerpa did put the business on hold for a couple years before really pushing the band out in the Miami area.

After taking a hiatus for a couple of years, Zerpa relaunched the brand in 2017 and the orders have been coming in for deliveries from Homestead on the south tip of Miami-Dade County to Boca Raton in Palm Beach County.

“My inspiration was to gift happiness and love through a sweet detail like breakfast in bed or a surprise breakfast,” Zerpa says.

A Venezuelan Man Is Instagramming His 1,118 Mile Walk To Educate Everyone On What Is Really Happening In Venezuela

A Venezuelan Man Is Instagramming His 1,118 Mile Walk To Educate Everyone On What Is Really Happening In Venezuela

Living in Trump’s America, there’s no shortage of causes that people should know about. Whether you’re fighting for immigration rights, women’s rights, voting rights, healthcare for all, or the environment, there’s truly a cause for everyone. The problem is if you care about all of these things, you will undoubtedly get burned out, which is why it’s essential to stick with one thing and put your heart into it. That’s what we’re learning from Miguel Galindo, a man walking from Doral, Florida to Washington to bring attention to the crisis in Venezuela.

Thirty-four-year-old Miguel Galindo is walking 1,100 miles from Florida to Washington to bring attention to the crisis in Venezuela.

Some may think there’s no way Galindo’s walk will bring any kind of change to the country, which is currently under tremendous turmoil within its government and the people.

“I am clear that by hiking from here to Washington, I am not going to remove Nicolás Maduro from power,” Galindo said to NBC News. “What I am trying to do is to add to the fight, add other Latino brothers and sisters, add other American brothers and sisters.”

He’s documenting the entire journey on his Instagram.

He launched his project walk earlier this month and is keeping all of his followers (more than 270K) up to date on what’s going on. He posts videos regularly showing the people helping him along his journey and showing his progress as he walks along with the route crossing six states.

He has reached out to help him on his walk to Washington.

“I can count on my Venezuelan brothers and sisters who have already offered me their homes, they have offered to pay for hotel stays, and I have also planned to sleep on the beach,” he tells NBC News.

Here’s what he’s taking on his trip — it’s not a lot either.

  • a large backpack
  • shirts
  • pants
  • socks
  • cell phones
  • chargers

The rest, he said, people will mail him to various spots on his route.
What’s really great about this story is that a person who wants to do something for his home country but cannot because he is not there shows that you still can help regardless of how far away you are.

Galindo is walking from Doral, Florida to Washington to honor the Venezuelan refugees who have had no choice but to walk out of their country for safety.

The crisis in Venezuela has been devastating the country and the people for years. As time passes, things in the country continue to deteriorate and people are forced to flee their homeland on foot for safety and freedom. Millions of Venezuelans have been left with no choice but to leave their homes and families behind to escape the collapsing country.

The young man wants to educate people about what is happening in Venezuela and the cause of the strife in the country.

According to his first video, Galindo wants people to know that President Trump is not the cause of the situation in Venezuela. He is also taking a stand against Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro and placing the blame for the crisis in his hands. He has also used his platform to let everyone who is listening know that Venezuelan Interim-President Juan Guiadó is simply fighting against the Maduro regime to restore democracy in Venezuela.

His friends have taken to social media to continue to express why the walk is happening.

First and foremost, they state they are not doing this as part of any political party or ideology. Instead, they are doing it as proud Venezuelans trying to save their country. As far as they are concerned, they are walking to Washington to fight for Venezuela, not any political ideology.

The walk is still going and mitú will update our report as the walk continues. Buena suerte, Galindo.

These Sisters Built The Country’s First 100% Ethically Made Business All For Their Brother

These Sisters Built The Country’s First 100% Ethically Made Business All For Their Brother

All For Ramon was born out of two sisters’ desires to honor their brother’s life.

When Rocio and Diana Ramon’s brother Juan was diagnosed with cancer, the two sisters had to step up to the plate and fill his shoes in helping with the family business. Ultimately their willingness to help their family and show up for their brother led them to a path of entrepreneurship.

After Rocio and Diana Ramon’s brother Juan was diagnosed with brain cancer their father came to them to ask for help.

At the time, the sisters’ father went to Rocio and asked her if she would be willing to take on their brother’s role at the company, who had been highly involved in the business. “I always dreamt of coming to help [my dad] at the factory,” Rocio told FIERCE in the latest episode of “Las Jefas.”

While of course, working for her family had always been her dream, Rocio explained that initially, her work was far from ideal. After all, she’d just lost her brother, and before he had passed away, he’d built up quite a reputation for himself. Rocio says, that expectations for her work were high and when she started working she was pretty much thrown to the wolves.

The wolves being the male-dominated environment in which our brother had been in charge of.

“In this industry, it’s male-dominant so I was here young and a woman so men would come here and see me they would look at me and be like ‘what are you doing here?’” Rocio told us during her interview, before going on to explain that she was ready for this kind of challenge. “I’m like ‘Yes! I’m the boss. This Latina girl is gonna tell you what to do, so you’re gonna have to listen.”

With so much work on her plate, Rocio says that when her younger sister offered to come and help her, she was thrilled.

Diana, who joined the company after her brother’s death to help Rocio says that she came to the decision to work at the factory out of a desire to help and also to grow. “I came to the decision that I had to make a sacrifice to put all of my mind in my creativity– to something that I knew was going to flourish and blossom into something beautiful and I had this dream to do something big,”

Eventually, Rocio and Diana Ramon went on to build their own brand.

The two are now the two founders of the first clothing brand to manufacture designs and clothing that are 100% ethically handmade in the U.S.

“I had just this dream to do something big, so I decided to continue this beautiful journey with All For Ramon with my sister because I know that its something beautiful because I have so much pride in it. “

The clothing brand, which specializes in tie-dye tees, relies on policies and a culture that is strongly rooted in their family values and appreciation of the American dream.

“What I say [about All For Ramon] is bueno, bonito, and ethical because being ethical and transparent is what we learned,” Rocio says before her sister adds that “Quality is not just an expecation it’s the rule for us.”

Today, the two sisters can agree that All For Ramon is more than just a clothing brand to them. Diana says that when it comes to every choice that they make they consider their brother Juan. “Everything that we do for this brand, from choosing the fabrics to picking out the colors, from developing what we’re going to develop in the future it’s like ‘okay what would my brother think about this?'”

While focusing on building their eco-friendly brand, the two sisters have a dream to inspire others as well.

“We want to highlight and educate to Latinos that [they] deserve quality,” says Diana. And when it comes to giving advice to Latinas. Their joint message is clear. “Now’s the time for you to shine and you can shine girl. Shine.”
