My name is Anna and I am just an average college student, only, I have big dreams! Thats right, I want to change the world! I want a world where we can all live in peace and learn to trust one another again. I want a world where war is a dream, and the fear of pain and hurt is just a far off fairytale. Of course, we sadly can never have a perfect world. But its nice to try and make it a happier place at least right?
I am new to being apart of a foundation like The Random Act, but Ive got to say, I LOVE IT! I have met so many nice people, and I feel so much better about myself. Giving is like a drug, you just want to keep giving and giving and giving. Misha Collins inspiration though has broght me to this place where all I can think about what new event can I do, what act of kindess can I do next. He is a TRUE hero and a inspiration to all. I thank him and his team for all their hard work and compassion.
BUT, I cant change the world on my own. I need yor help!
There are so many people in the world less fortunate then us and they need out help. They need food, water, shelter, clothing, anything! The Random Act has spent the last three years building an orphange for the children of Jacmel, Haiti; It will be completed this summer. I am calling upon you to please help me raise money for these kids. For the suppies to help feed, cloth, and shelter them. I am not asking you to give me everything out of your pockets. I am asking you, if you can afford even just a $1 to PLEASE help out and donate.
We can all make difference no matter how small or how large.
THANK YOU ALL! <3 <3 <3

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.
