Sending LIGHT to Haiti in DARK Times
Organized by: Monica Florville
Hi Everyone! My Name is Monica Florville and I am a Haitian- American. I was born here and raised there, fell in love and you know what they say about real love, you can never get away from the object of those emotions...no matter how far you travel, they are always with you. In light of the recent hurricane, my heart broke into pieces seeing the destruction of one of the regions I spent a lot of summers in, the South of Haiti. The loss of homes, food, clothing and worst of all lives has us all wanting to do something to allow for some sentiments of HOPE for those living there; which is why I thought "light". I own a company that sells LED bulbs, but my light bulbs need an electrical grid to work. In the case of the southern region of Haiti, the grid is badly damaged therefore residents are in need of an alternative way to light their worlds. Well, as LUCK and a bit of genius on behalf of the great people at LuminAID would have it, we were able to find water proof Solar Powered LED Light Pouches that would serve the Haitians there beautifully. We are looking to purchase 1000 Light Pouches - I know it's ambitious, but with your help I know we can do it. Thank you ALL in advance for your support!!!
