BENEFITING: Hope On A String Inc
EVENT DATE: May 26, 2012
This Memorial Day, I will be taking part in the Color Me Rad 5K Race to raise awareness and funds for the incredible work that Hope On A String is doing in rural Haiti.
Hope on a String (HOAS) is a non-profit, grassroots organization dedicated to social transformation and economic development in Haiti through participation in music. In less than one year since launching their first program in Haiti, HOAS has averaged ~650 participants from the surrounding community and has created dozens of badly needed jobs and income opportunities for the region. The HOAS Center offers a wide variety of music related classes (all free of charge), in addition to English language courses and adult literacy and leadership programs.
As a member of the Board of Directors, I have witnessed first hand the amazing impact and importance of HOAS's mission in Haiti, and I hope you'll join me in supporting the cause by making a donation to HOAS through this page.
Thanks to our recently awarded 501(c)(3) status, your donation to my run for HOAS is even tax deductible (woot!).
Thank you all for your support!
