If you've made it this far you're either extremely bored or thinking about doing something to help.
I guess it's also possible for you to have arrived here by accident, but that seems unlikely.
Whatever the case, I'm going to try (and probably fail) to express how very, very awesome this project is.
Unfortunately, I can’t make everyone read this, but if you do, I hope that it will convince you to make a donation to this important project.
I’m sure you’ve heard it before, but it is true, so I’ll say it again: Every Dollar Counts.
So, why Hope to Haiti?
Well, let’s start with the fact that it’s run by Random Acts, an organization which everyday asks its members to spread kindness. At Random. While wearing fake mustaches. And eating kale. So you know we’re a fun-loving bunch. Also, it’s not a cult; says so right on the website. See?
On a more serious note, Random Acts has been to Haiti twice before. Literally, volunteers went to Jacmel, and shed blood, sweat, and tears (of happiness?). That’s dedication. Rea, a stunningly kind person, went last year (she going back this year too), and took lots of wonderful pictures!
Which brings me to my next point. If you’ve ever donated to charities before, you might have experienced a strange feeling. Like, maybe your money is doing something good, but you couldn’t exactly say what. With hope to Haiti there is a clear breakdown of where the money is going. So, put your worried mind at ease.
I could go on forever, about all the cool things Hope to Haiti is going to do, (THE BUILDING! ISN’T IT BEAUTIFUL?) but I’m trying to keep this short, so I’ll skip the last, and most important part:
The impact that having a safe place to stay, three meals a day, and the resources to learn will be incomprehensibly positive on the kids that are going to stay there.
My name is Nina, I'm 24 (well, I will be in June), and live in the USA.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, and for you support! If you have anyquestions please feel free to email me at email@example.com!

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.
