THE STORY:

Let's Build a Home for a family in Haiti

LEVE Housing would like to to build a home for a family before the hurricane season hits Haiti this summer 2012.  

 

Their Current Home

This family's home is made of mud brick, unfinished hand cut wood, metal roofing, and tarps. There is no electricity, no access to water, no plumbing, no security, and no protection from the elements. The walls have collapsed on more than sixty percent of the home, which leaves them open to thieves, rats, rain, and mosquitoes.  In the last year this family has had clothes and shoes stolen from their home and the father has fallen ill to Malaria.  This family has been met with incredible challenges, but just like all of us they deserve a safe home. LEVE HOUSING is ready to build a new home the family can be proud of, but we need your help! 

*See pictures in the gallery.

Specifications:

  • 500 sq. ft. Home
  • 3-Bedrooms
  • 1-Bathroom
  • Living Room
  • Indoor/Outdoor Kitchen
  • Front Porch

  • Plumbing for sink, toilet and shower

The Impact

You give.  The family gets a Home.  

  • It will provde a sense of safety, pride, and dignity. 
  • Allow the youngest son to continue his studies much more successfully.
  • And may even reunite the family.  

  

The Word-Cloud; How it Works  

You give. Kevin and Courtney will be rocking your name!  The more you give, the bigger your name becomes!

  • The Word-Cloud is a visual representation for text data. The size of a word represents the number of times the word is repeated in the source text. 
  • For every ten dollars you give, you get a word submitted into the LEVE word-cloud.  
  • The more words you submit, the bigger your word becomes.
  • At the end of the campaign, the word cloud will be posted online by LEVE and our fundraising partners. 
  • The Word-Cloud will also become a t-shirt which will be worn and posted by our fundraising partners.
    • You can also purchase our unique Word-Cloud t-shirt! Shoot us a message if interested.

 

*Check out the media gallery to see an example of the Word-Cloud.

*Make sure when you give, that you include your word in the comment section of the submission!  Or shoot us an email if you missed it.
