THE STORY:

Here's my story:

For my Masters Project, I'm doing my research on Random Acts, Jacmel Children and the Hope to Haiti Project itself. After much deliberation with my supervisor, my goal is to go with the group to do field research while volunteering and be able to do primary research in order to find out how the negotiations between the organizations and the locals go about. I believe that the paradigm in which Jacmel Children is working in Jacmel, Haiti is something that is worth noting, as a non-governmental organization in the sea of many others.  

As former staff, I firmly believed and still believe in Random Acts' ability to make changes. RA's work in Jacmel with Jacmel Children and the way they conduct their work together through the Hope to Haiti Project is something worth recognizing. So here is my way of helping out--through crowdsourcing and social media fundraising. If you landed here by a phantom click, please do not be alarmed! It's a good cause, and I thank you humbly, in advance, for all your help.  

Sincerely,  

Mariel

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.
