THE STORY:

In Haiti, Rubble still lines all the streets, 1. 5 million people are still in tents or without shelter, and children are not in school. But there is hope...and we identified several high impact ways create conditions for success:

Skills-based volunteerism

- Logistics and supply chain management for existing projects
- Communications support

Business Planning

- Recycling and environmental clean-up. - Much of the trash being dumped in downtown canals and into the water off Haiti is recyclable, but there is no capability to do so. We are exploring opportunities with Dow, Western Union, Nike and Timberland (they already use recycled PET in many of their shoes and apparel) to set up a company to recycle PET found in plastic containers. The benefits will be job creation, a recycled product that can be used in building materials, insulation and as a substitute for cotton.

As we create value for their trash we also expect a behavior change in the Haitians in how the dispose of their garbage, hence, improving the environment and making their beaches once again pristine for tourists.

Previously we partnered with Bochic (www.bochic.com) to raise money for Haiti. We auctioned off jewelry worn by Sandra Bullock and other celebrities to fund Haitian wells, and other safe water programs through charity: water.

We do amazing things with volunteers, but this effort requires some full-time staff to provide continuity and overall project management. We are currently raising funds to hire such a person, and give them the resources necessary to deploy teams to Haiti. We can't do it without your support.
