THE STORY:

About me:

Hi everyone! I just wanted to tell you a little bit about who I am and why I would like to go on this trip with the lovely staff and volunteers of Random Acts. 

My name is Amy and I'm currently a nursing student in Daytona Beach, Florida. I can't wait to graduate from school, because I hope to become an ER nurse. With the skills I learn working as a nurse, I plan to join volunteer groups that provide disaster medical assistance, both in the U.S. and abroad. I'd like to be a helping hand and a shoulder to lean on for those in need during a crisis, whether it be earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, tornadoes or anything else. I want to devote my entire future to helping people in need. I feel like this is the opportunity of a lifetime for me to get my feet wet in it, to give it a shot, and I don't think I've ever wanted to succeed at something more than this.

But that's enough about me. This isn't about me. Above everything else, every dollar raised here goes directly to help the people of Jacmel, and that's what truly matters. Whether I make the trip myself or not, your money is not "wasted" because it is  helping this beautiful community. Not a single dime of the money raised here will go to me anyway - the trip would be out of my own pocket, and worth every single cent. I really believe in this cause, and hope you will help the dreams of hundreds of children in Jacmel become a reality. They deserve this beautiful home.

RANDOM ACTS wrote -

Three years ago, after a devastating earthquake ravaged Haiti, Random Acts made a commitment to help rebuild homes, communities, and lives. Since then, we've raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for Haiti and funneled that money directly into local, sustainable projects serving children in Jacmel. Our projects have provided hundreds of children with a safe place to sleep, clean water and regular meals, health care, a school to go to, families who care for them and, most importantly, hope for the future.

We've also taken two trips to Haiti ourselves, joined by our top fundraisers, who each accomplished the incredible feat of raising at least $5,000.

During our first trip in 2011, Random Acts staff and volunteers worked in the fierce heat of the Haitian sun to help break ground on the Jacmel Children's Center, an orphanage and school for children in need. We also met and connected with the students and staff of the Art Creation Foundation for Children, the Faith & Love Orphanage, and the Espoir des Enfants Orphanage.

In 2012, we went back to Jacmel to do it all over again. The walls of the Jacmel Children's Center towered above us, a tangible result of our hard work and dedication that brought many of the returning volunteers to tears. We also participated in creative and recreational activities with the children from the other organizations in between painting and doing construction work.

Now, we're nearing the end of our work in Haiti. The Jacmel Children's Center is already two storeys high and has a roof over it. It still needs windows and doors, tiling, plumbing, solar panels, paint, and furnishings, but all that will be completed this summer. Random Acts will journey there one last time to help do it.

Important information regarding the funds you raise or donate: All donations raised through this campaign will go to Random Acts, a division of The Art Department, Inc. The primary commitment for these funds is to complete the Jacmel Children's Center and continue to offer operating support to the JCC and our other projects in Haiti (this includes administrative and operational expenses associated with our H2H project). Should funds from this campaign be available after our commitment is satisfied, we reserve the right to re-allocate them to future development projects or special initiatives.
