THE STORY:

Some of my friends might remember last year I did some fundraising for Hope to Haiti, but missed out on the actual trip to Haiti with the team. Well, I'm doing it again this year and this time I am determined to join Random Acts in Haiti in June. To be eligible to go on the trip I need to raise $5000.

All I'm asking for is the minimum donation of $10. You can donate anytime before the end of May. Anything you can give to help out would mean the world to me. Even just sharing this link on your FB profile or Twitter, or emailing it around would be a great help!

All the money donated will be going directly to the cause. After the devastating earthquake 3 years ago, Random Acts has been going to Jacmel, Haiti with a group of volunteers to build an orphanage for all the kids who were left without family after the earthquake. The orphanage will be home to a couple of hundred children and will provide them with shelter, clothing, food, much needed medical care and education. As well as the orphanage, Random Acts has built a fresh water catchment system, a self sustainable fresh water fish farm and a community center - and all of this has been done through donations.

This is the last trip Random Acts will be taking to Haiti as our work is almost done there, but funds are still needed to finish our work off.
I desperately want to go as I've missed out the last two years. This charity is incredibly important to me and your help and support is much appreciated.

Thank you so much!
Shelley xx

 

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. 

Please join us!

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.
