On Sunday, November 4th, I'm running the NYC Marathon, and I'll be supporting Foyer Espoir Les Enfants, a Haitian orphanage and school. I'm writing to ask for your strong support for this remarkable organization.
A bit of background: On January 12, 2010, a 7.7 earthquake struck Haiti, adding thousands of orphans to the 300,000 the country already had. Foyer Espoir Les Enfants was established that year, and today the orphanage is home to more than 45 kids, and the school enrolls another 180. Their yearly budget is a bit over $100,000, and they stretch every dollar.
In short: this is a place where we can really make a difference. So thank you in advance for your generous donations.
