Having done a lot of different charity work over the years I am looking for a new challenge and Hope 2 Haiti 2 is it!
Some things I have done - organized a clothing drive for my husbands co workers family when deployed to Iraq, donations to local families through a church in the Azores (Portugal), donations to womens shelters and nearly 4 years of dog (and 2 random kitties!) rescue. I also make regular loans to people in mostly 3rd world countries, via Kiva, who are trying to better their lives.
I have been wanting to have a hands on experience to and have been looking into different charities and events and Random Acts H2H2 looks like the one! I need to raise a minimum of $5000 to get spot on the trip to Haiti to help rebulid their city after the devasting earthquake. PLEASE help me achieve my goal so I can help them!
BENEFITING: RANDOM ACTS
EVENT DATE: Jun 14, 2012
DEADLINE TO GIVE: Jul 31, 2012
HERE'S THE STORY:
Two years ago, after a destructive and devastating earthquake ravaged Haiti, Random Acts provided major funding for a journey to Jacmel to assist in rebuilding homes, communities and lives. During our initial visit, a dental clinic was reconstructed, an orphanage was refurbished and a carpentry school with 1600 donated tools was founded.
Later, in 2011, Misha Collins and the Random Acts team returned. This time, we were joined by a group of 22 enthusiastic volunteers. For the volunteers, work began before they arrived in Haiti. To secure their spot, each person expended vast amounts of energy and determination to raise at least $5000. What a great accomplishment! The monies raised from those donations, and donations from our amazing supporters, provided the tools and supplies used during our mission.
While there, the volunteers and staff opened their hearts and arms to demonstrate the true power of kindness. They worked in the fierce heat of the Haitian sun to aid in the construction of a multi-purpose community center; a facility that will provide shelter, as well as educate and feed homeless and orphaned children. Plus, our team members participated in creative and recreational activities with the children, such as arts, crafts and games.
But, our work isn’t done. That's why we're going back in 2012.
