BENEFITING: RANDOM ACTS

ORGANIZER: RANDOM ACTS

THE STORY:

Over the past year, it’s seemed like you couldn’t turn around without learning of another natural disaster or tragedy. More recently, the tragedies have been hitting so quickly it’s hard to remember all of the ones that came previously. Through it all, I’ve begun to wonder how many more news reports I can watch before my heart won’t feel anything but completely shattered with sorrow. Everyone is asking for money and aid, but unfortunately, anything I could donate would be only a tiny drop in the bucket of need. But. I have muscles, and I have a willingness and desire to work and help in rebuilding lives.

So I am asking for your help. Random Acts is a non-profit charity organization that I am proud to support. Last year when the earthquake hit Haiti, RA raised over $30,000 which went directly into rebuilding Haiti - they helped start a carpentry school and supplied 1600 tools, rebuilt a dental clinic, and refurbished an orphanage. Part of why I love their efforts is that they are not just collecting money to give to the Red Cross or another aid organization (not that there’s anything wrong with that). What RA does allows us to see what is actually being accomplished; there are real, tangible results rather than a tax receipt and the knowledge that your money has gone... somewhere.

This year, Random Acts is returning to Jacmel, Haiti from June 20-26 to work on constructing a multi-purpose community center and a sustainable fish farm. It has been my desire for some time now to *do* something to help with the disasters, which is why I am asking for your help in raising funds so that I can help rebuild Haiti with RA.

So here’s the fine print. RA is only taking the first 40 people who raise enough funds: $5000. I know, it’s a lot of money, and that’s not even counting airfare, etc. But this is something that I believe in and hope you do too. Any kind of assistance will help - whether it’s a donation of any amount or just telling a friend, “Hey, my friend Julie is trying to go help out in Haiti - can you help her get there?” And since space is limited, time is of the essence in raising the funds.

Please help me use my muscles for a good cause. If you can find it in your heart to donate, I (and the people of Jacmel) will be very grateful. And remember, every little bit helps!

Thank you for your time.
