On behalf of Team Tassy, a nonprofit organization whose work I support. Team Tassy’s mission is to accompany families in Haiti out of poverty through good, dignified jobs. They, and I, too, believe in the power of jobs in ending poverty, and work in one community in Port-au-Prince, Haiti to eradicate poverty for the 1500 families who live there.
To support their work and Haiti’s local economy as a job creation initiative, Team Tassy hosts an annual 230-mile ultramarathon, called the Run Across Haiti. The purpose of the run is to show that Haiti is not a place to be feared or to be pitied. Their goal is to raise $200,000 towards dignified work.
I am pleased to share that I was selected as one of forty runners to run across Haiti and will participate in the run in 2018 from February 16th to the 25th. This is my first time partaking in such event like this and hopefully not my last. My commitment is to do my best to complete the run and to raise $5,000 towards the organization’s fundraising goal. I would love to have your support to get there and ask that you support my campaign.
This would mean the world to me. Thank you in advance for your generous donation toward to this wonderful cause.
