Looking for help with Content and building the website.

I am a single Dad and run two businesses, so I would love to build a tribe that could help me with content, social media and general website See More

THE STORY:

As we all know Haiti has seen a tremendous amount of suffering over the last few years. Unfortunately for the Haitian people millions of dollars raised never seemed to make it to the actual people of that nation. I would like to use this money and hopefully more to take a team of 6 people for 10-14 days to travel to Haiti and personally hand out the funds to the very needy, while working along side them daily doing any and all missionary work required. One can only assume how bad it is there until my team and I get to Haiti and access this situation. If you are like me, you aren't putting a lot of stock in what the media is telling us. As we have seen in recent news articles it appears the Cholera outbreak is back and Haitian's really need our help. https://www.theguardian.com/global-development/2016/oct/25/united-nations-expert-special-rapporteur-calls-actions-over-haiti-cholera-outbreak-2010-a-disgrace Apparently, this trip will have a unique set of security challenges, so my team and I need to prepare accordingly. https://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/alertswarnings/haiti-travel-warning.html My plan is to get this campaign founded asap. The trip will be scheduled for January 2017 giving me and my team ample time to set up, prepare, research and make the needed contacts for safe transportation while on the ground. My plan is to document this entire trip and take photo's, share stories, add Photo's and contact info of the people's lives we touched and enable them to continue to add their stories day after day on a FaceBook group page. I will add that page once the campaign is close to being funded. I am will try to move as fast as possible to have that FB page ready in Nov 2016. I will also be added so you can see where your funds go and how they helped. If you would like to help with content and or travel plans please contact me. (experts please) Have a great day.
