RANDOM ACTS SAYS:
Dearest Hope to Haiti Donor,…
Dearest Hope to Haiti Donor,


We cannot thank you enough for your overwhelming generosity to Random Acts’ Hope2Haiti 2012 campaign. I hope that you have been following us at www.haiti.therandomact.org as we chronicle how your support is significantly impacting the children and community of Jacmel. While the situation in Haiti remains dire, our projects are receiving funding they desperately need…all thanks to you!

Random Acts is still helping with several wonderful projects conceived and run by Haitians in their home communities. The Jacmel Children’s Center is in the final phases of construction and we fully anticipate completion by the end of 2012 or early 2013, this has been made possible by your donation. The Art Creation Foundation For Children is hoping to move into a much larger facility that they will own, and some of your donations are being to help make that possible. The Faith and Love Orphanage is under construction to expand their facility to provide a secure, loving home for even more children and the Espoir des Enfants orphanage has a new home and hopes to put in a library soon.

The hard earned dollars you donated are disbursed directly from Random Acts to these entities and therefore, directly to the programs they provide. This arrangement allows you to be certain that your funds are being used to impact the children and the community of Jacmel in a truly significant way. We will continue to share with you video and testimonials from our volunteer team about our Haiti experience and ongoing progress.

Stuff About Me:

I have no idea where to start, I am not usually the sort of person who does fundraisers. It's not that I'm unwilling to do the work,  as any teacher I've ever assisted can attest,  I cheerfully put my all into whatever assignment I am given. No my problem is I don't like feeling I am imposing myself on others. This is why pretty much all of my charity work in the past has been in a more passive way, such as assisting adult learners or helping at a cat shelter. Last summer I volunteered three weeks of my vacation to care for my mom while she recovered from knee surgery. Also I pride myself on making a small footprint (silly to do otherwise with size 5 1/2 shoes) by being car-less, favoring cruelty and proservative free products, and taking reuse, reduce and recycle to heart. Seriously, around 85% of everything I own is used,  refurbished or recycled in someway. 

The last six year my subsitute instruction assistant work has been keeping pretty distracted. I have mostly worked in Afterschool Programs with kids from the 1st though 8th grades. A different setting than normal school, IAs are mostly on their own with 20 kids  and there is no telling what can happen at any given time, lots fun but also kind of like organized chaos. And last year I worked long term at the junior high (6th-8th) thankfully, I got along well with my students considering 2/3s of them were larger than me. This year however, I earned myself a permanent position with a 1st/2nd (with 3 4th grade helpers) combo class. 

Which brings me to how I actually got involved with The Random Act- Hope2 Haiti project. In Feburary during Random Acts of Kindness week (12th-18th) I introducted the concept to my children. At the time they mostly discussed ways they could help people they knew, and I posted up the best statements in the classroom. In March I was trying to catch-up on the timeline the series Supernatural  though Netflix when I saw an episode, "The French Mistake," having had Twitter for a couple years I decided to look Misha Collins up. I found Jared (Sam Winchester) first and then him though @jarpad. After following @mishacollins for a bit, I became interested in his charity. I  realized this was a great way to expand on the idea of kindess to others for my class. I mainly focused on the artwork contest because with our limited resources this seemed like something we could do. Then watched bit of the video of the orphans in Haiti and realized I could motivate my class by offering to use their posters to raise money for children (like themselves) who needed what my class has, a safe place to go to school. Also I did promise them if I earned enough money to solidify my commitment, I would go over there in June...However it has since come to my attention that cost of travel and lodging is beyond what I can personally afford...therefore while I still hope to make the goal I cannot offer anything beyond a voice.
