BENEFITING: ART CREATION FOUNDATION FOR CHILDREN INC
EVENT DATE: Feb 07, 2014
The Art Creation Foundation for Children has a simple mission: to change the lives of Haitian youth through art. We believe that compassion and connection are key to a brighter future. We are empowering youth and equipping them with the tools to become Haiti's leaders. ACFFC youth are being taught self-sufficiency, community and responsibility. All this while providing food, education, medical and other basic needs.
ACFFC is a small but continually growing grassroots organization. There are approx. 100 kids in the program today but there are many more on a wait list. Your support is greatly needed at this time not only to support the current day to day operations but also to allow the ACFFC to bring in those children that are waiting, waiting for the opportunity to be part of a program that builds a strong foundation for a future through education and the arts.
Last June a group of us had an amazing opportunity to go to Haiti and spend time with the kids at the ACFFC. We brought those kids back home with us in our hearts. The work that the ACFFC is doing with these kids is something I wish everyone could see and experience. They are extraordinary, they are talented, they are loving and caring and smart and funny. They also have dreams and with the help of ACFFC they have a way to work toward those dreams.
Over the last 6 months a number of us have been given the opportunity to work more closely with the ACFFC in helping them to continue to realize those dreams.
In February, a group of us is going back to Haiti and we will be able to spend time with our kids once again. We come to you now to ask you if you would help us help these beautiful kids realize their dreams and for your generosity we have a little something for you in return!
For every donation of $20 you will receive a paper mache bird, handcrafted and painted by a youth at the ACFFC. If you give $40 you will receive two birds (while they last)! Heck if you would like to give more (and I strongly encourage you to do so) you could acquire your own flock and I mean who amongst us hasn’t dreamt of their own flock of birds?
Little by little, one step at a time, the ACFFC is enabling and equiping these kids to realize their futures. But we need your help! So please help us help our kids spread thier wings, leave the nest and take flight! Thank you in advance for all of your support.
