BENEFITING: HELPING HANDS IN MOTION INC
EVENT DATE: Apr 12, 2012
The House of Blessings Orphanage in Callebasse, Haiti was in the process of building a school when a massive earthquake rocked the country two years ago. While the orphanage itself suffered only minor damage, the school was left in ruins. Further construction was halted as House of Blessings became a center for relief and rebuilding for their community. Since the disaster, House of Blessings has brought in supplies and work crews to construct over 180 homes in the area. This humble orphanage, started over 20 years ago, has truly lived up to it's name.
Now it's time for us to be a blessing to them.
We are raising funds to help House of Blessings finish rebuilding their school. In May, a small group of us from here in Southwest Michigan spent a week working side by side with our Haitian friends. About $4,000 was raised prior to the trip and was used to purchase sheetrock and other materials for the school. The school is really close to being finished so the sooner we raise the remainder of our $10,000 goal the sooner it will be ready for use!
Be a part of lasting, sustainable development in Haiti by providing a school for the village of Callebasse. Help House of Blessings continue to bless its community, country and world.
[note: Helping Hands in Motion is the name of the non-prof that organizes trips and construction efforts for House of Blessings. The funds raised here will go directly to the school project.]
