THE STORY:

Why should you support me in this charity?

 

Short Answer: I'm awesome.

Long Answer: I went to Haiti a few years ago as a tourist on a cruise ship. I was stunned by the overwhelming poverty plauging the beautiful island and felt guilty for not doing more to help them. I've donated a little here and there when I could, but not enough to make me feel like I was doing anything to really help. Now, thanks to The Random Act Org, I have a chance to make a difference in person, to change a kid's life or make an adult's easier. I want to spread the love to Haiti and improve their living conditions, one fundraiser at a time!

 

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.
