THE STORY:

THE Liesl writes-

When I was 11, I spent a week in Costa Rica spending time at orphanages and helping the people there. That trip really changed me and helped shape who I am today. I haven't made another trip like that but I've always hoped something would come up.

My brother's ship (US Navy) was one of the first ships to respond after the earthquake and I've been interested in going to Haiti for a while but could never make it.

I first learned about Random Acts H2H through, who else? Misha. But what really made me interested was actually meeting Jo. She was one of the amazing people who went to Haiti last year and hearing about the children that we're helping through this was incredible.

Take three minutes from your busy day to check out who we're helping: http://jacmelchildren.org/ 

I'll be running a blog (of sorts) giving facts about Haiti here: http://lieslshaitifacts.tumblr.com

100% of your donations goes to supplies and everthing for the Jacmel Children's Center. I will be funding 100% of my own travel, lodging and food expenses.

I believe that we can change the world one day at a time. Whether I go or not, this money is going to help the people of Haiti. And that's what really matters.

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.

When I'm around you, I kind of feel like I'm on drugs. Not that I do drugs. Unless you do drugs, in which case I do them all the time. All of them. 5 years ago
