THE STORY:

DEBRA WRITES:

I am excited to be a part of fundraising for this fantastic charity! I'm a teacher, so it always makes me happy when a charity is involved in education and making the world a better place! I've been involved in charities since 7th grade, when I went to Pittsburgh to help rebuild homes there with The Pittsburgh Project! I would be ecstatic to have the opportunity to go to Haiti, but I understand that you're not a bazillionaire. So I (and Hope2Haiti) will take whatever you can give!

If you want me to take pictures in return for your donations, here's a link to my Craigslist ad!

Or I can copy-paste it here:

Asking donations:
$25 base price (to cover the CD and SD memory card), plus $40/hr for all photography (unlimited pictures/poses--you get a CD or USB and SD card with all of the pictures and all digital/copyright rights) If I am photographing an event for you (wedding, engagement photos, birthday parties, etc) I will photoshop 20+ of the pictures I take for free!
$5/photograph for specific edit requests (ie, "put me next to the President on Air Force One" or "put a smile on my daughter's face in this picture")
$10 for touchups on 50 digital photographs (mine or yours) (or $0.50/photograph for smaller quantities)

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.
