THE STORY:

WE DID IT!

Since the very beginning, fundraising has been propelled forward by the hands of many, and my gratitude can't be expressed in words. Thanks to everyone who donated and everyone who wished they could and gave words of support instead. $5,000 seemed so daunting once - but in just a handful of weeks, I watched the number grow. Never have I felt so loved by so many people. The solidarity and good will is overwhelming. In June, I was able to go to Haiti  and see all the good we've done. I can honestly say that, after seeing with my own eyes where your money has gone, there is nowhere it could be better spent. Check out my H2H blog and this video for a final look at the H2H3 project.

THANK YOU!

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. - Margaret Mead

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.

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.
