Devious Maids stars Roselyn Sanchez and Judy Reyes are lending their time and talents to a new Kickstarter project aimed at Latina youths!

La Golda is an animation featuring an eight-year-old orphan who has bounced from orphanage to orphanage. The little girl has two passions: soccer and building a better world for kids. Now, her and her friends are out to save the world! 

According to the Kickstarter page, the mission is to encourage youths to take action. “No matter where you are, how young you are, children can make a difference,” the site reads, “The characters of La Golda represent children from all over the world, and the pilot will be produced in both English and Spanish for multi-cultural audiences.”

The series is aimed at younger audiences, and plans to showcase positive role models and multicultural themes.

The creator of the series is George Valencia, a director, writer and producer who has won multiple awards, including SHOWTIME's "Best New Latin Filmmaker" in 2002. Roselyn Sanchez has signed on to star in the series, and Judy Reyes will be producing.
