Teach Haiti .... Please.
Don't you love it when you have people in your life that TRULY affect you????
Don't you love it when you have a friend that is doing GREAT THINGS?
Don't you love it when YOU can copy THEM????
I have a friend like that.
Her name is Heather
She is amazing and is doing great things with her life.
She is a mother of 4 BOYS who moved to Haiti last year.
Her family is doing AMAZING things for the Kingdom.
I mean, SERIOUSLY....
Being a mother of 4 ANYTHINGS is hard enough....then throw in HAITI.
I am always inspired by her RESOURCEFULNESS.
Yesteray she posted THIS about a read-a-thon her kids were doing in school.
Kinda like a "jump-rope-for-heart"...where you PLEDGE to donate a certain amount per 1/2 hour or hour....remember those????
Well the read-a thon is just like THAT ...but with reading instead of jumping rope.
And the cause is AMAZING!!!
100 % of the donations go to a grassroots organization called Teach Haiti.
The Hendrick's boys said THIS about Teach Haiti:
"Teach Haiti is a organization founded by Miss Miquette Denie. She helps kids who are poor in Haiti go to school so the kids can learn new stuff. It costs 350 dollars U.S. for a kid to go to school for a whole year. We don't know what it would be like if we couldn't go to school. So even if we read a million minutes it will be worth it for other kids to get to go to school. The way you can help is by donating money to sponcer us. The ways you can do it is you can donate a certin amount of money for every 15 min. or just flat out. We hope this year we will make the most money for the readathon."
Sweet, sweet generous souls.
I mean really...how could we NOT get involved????
We have decided to have a READ-A-THON in the Vallone academy.
Monday, Feb.21- Monday, Feb. 28
The kids will READ, READ, READ as much as possible.
For the kids of Haiti....who CAN'T!!!
THIS is where YOU come in:
You can donate a flat rate or you can donate per 15 minutes.
WHATEVER you want....ANYTHING HELPS.
We will donate 100 % of the proceeds to Teach Haiti.
So please...WON'T YOU HELP a child get an education?????
Leave me a message and I will getback to you...
