Who doesn't love a good old recycling project? We certainly do!!! This old beaten up shipping container got a make over and turned into our new Haitian office space. One of our partner organizations, Haiti Comunitere, converted the container for us, painted it in Caribbean colors, installed electricity, cut out the windows and custom made the furniture.
Would you feel inspired to help us fund this small but essential project so that our local program coordinator has a quiet place to work, (with internet and consistent electricity as an extra bonus)? To pay for one years' rent, including amenities and the furniture, we need to raise a total of $4,000.00
How about we all donate 1%? Do we have 100 friends who are willing to help us with $40?
Please click here to make your $40.00 donation -- no pressure; smaller or bigger gifts are welcome too. Thank you! And, if you're inclined to, please come visit us in Haiti :-) There are lovely guest rooms by our office (ever slept in a container, anyone?)
