BENEFITING: Reach The Children

EVENT DATE: Sep 09, 2011

Eric Meldrum

THE STORY:

In Haiti, people don't want handouts. They want jobs. They want to start businesses that will grow and succeed in providing for them and their families. I just came back from Leogane, Haiti, where I worked with Sustain Haiti, a small but powerful organization that provides training and community assistance in: 

  • Microfinance and Small Business Support
  • Health and Sanitation
  • Family-level Agriculture
  • English as a Second Language
  • Orphanage Assistance

Sustain Haiti recently completed its second annual Business Plan Competition, providing cash prizes to 10 winners from among hundreds of entrants to help them start new, viable businesses.

To help Sustain Haiti expand and improve its Business Plan Competition for next year, I'm doing a fundraising bike ride from Washington, DC to Miami, FL, starting September 9!  If we can raise $5000 for next year's Business Plan Competition, we'll be able to increase both the number of winners and the size of their awards, as well as provide more training and consulting for all participants. My bicycle and I will do the hard part; all you have to do is donate! 

Check out my blog and follow me on Twitter -- @Eric4Haiti ! And if you'd like to meet up for lunch or come ride with me for a few hours, let me know!

Mèsi anpil! 

-Eric

IMPORTANT: Sustain Haiti is currently being operated as a subsidiary of Reach the Children while we await the finalization of our 501(c)3 status. Please donate to Reach the Children and specify "Sustain Haiti" as the project recipient.
