THE STORY:

 

Hi everybody! So if you're here, you probably already know that my name is Jess, and I like monkeys. What you may not know is that I think helping people is super cool. 

The short version:
I need you - yes, you - to click that donate button and help me raise $5,000 so that I can go to Haiti and work my ass off to help people.

Benefits of doing this include:

  • Helping children
  • Making me so happy that I'll sing you a song (or not, if you don't want me to)
  • Warm and fuzzy feelings in the vicinity of your heart as you fall asleep, content in the knowledge that you've done something to improve the lives of other human beings

Sound good? Good. Go donate!

The long version:
Several people have expressed varying levels of shock and surprise that this is something I want to do. It's okay. It doesn't hurt my feelings that you think I'm a bad person. 

But honestly, this is something I'm really excited about. I think that kindness is pretty much the best quality you can possess, and I've been looking for ways to spread some of that around, which led me to The Random Act, and their Hope2Haiti trip.

Some basic info:

What: To continue efforts of building a multi-purpose Community Center that will provide shelter and a place to educate and feed the many children of Jacmel.

When: June 14-22, 2012

Where: Jacmel, Haiti

In order to qualify for this trip, I have to be one of the first 25 people to raise $5,000, so anything you can donate would go a long way to help, and will earn you my deepest gratitude and respect. 

If you have any additional questions for me, you're welcome to email me at walk3r.jd[at]gmail[dot]com. 

RANDOM ACTS wrote -

Two years ago, after a destructive and devastating earthquake ravaged Haiti, Random Acts provided major funding for a journey to Jacmel to assist in rebuilding homes, communities and lives. During our initial visit, a dental clinic was reconstructed, an orphanage was refurbished and a carpentry school with 1600 donated tools was founded.

Later, in 2011, Misha Collins and the Random Acts team returned. This time, we were joined by a group of 22 enthusiastic volunteers. For the volunteers, work began before they arrived in Haiti. To secure their spot, each person expended vast amounts of energy and determination to raise at least $5000. What a great accomplishment! The monies raised from those donations, and donations from our amazing supporters, provided the tools and supplies used during our mission.

While there, the volunteers and staff opened their hearts and arms to demonstrate the true power of kindness. They worked in the fierce heat of the Haitian sun to aid in the construction of a multi-purpose community center; a facility that will provide shelter, as well as educate and feed homeless and orphaned children. Plus, our team members participated in creative and recreational activities with the children, such as arts, crafts and games.

But, our work isn’t done. That's why we're going back in 2012.

In order to participate, you must raise your funds through Crowdrise at this project page.
