Thanks to everyone who has sponsored us on the Haiti Just Recovery Trip! We've reached our goal and we're going to Haiti! See More

THE STORY:

Elizabeth and Jon are raising money to fund a weeklong service trip to Haiti! We're traveling January 3rd - 10th with a delegation from the Unitarian Universalist Social Justice College.

More than 1.5 million Haitians were displaced by the earthquake in 2010. The Papaye Peasant Movement (MPP) is working with partner organizations, like the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC), to build eco-villages where people can start new lives with sturdy shelter and the means to feed themselves and generate sustainable livelihoods. We will go to Haiti to help with whatever work needs to be done: if they need help building the 10th eco-village, we will sift sand, move rocks, and learn how to make reinforced concrete; if they need help with planting, we will mix soil for seedlings and build container gardens out of old tires; if the community center needs painting, we will help paint it. Haiti faces enormous challenges, but there is tremendous, progressive, effective social change work going on there. We will spend a week learning all that we can about all of it. When we come back, Jon will write about it in his next book, and we will both become informed advocates for a nation that needs lots of excellent ambassadors.

All of the money we raise will go directly to the pre-established cost of the trip, which will, in turn, pay Haitian drivers, translators, cooks, farmers, and MPP Center staff. Please give what you can, whatever amount you can. We will bring you great stories of a people rebuilding, creating new ways to sustain themselves and each other.
