Hey everyone a little more than 20 days before I leave for Haiti I’m so excited!
There’s not too much to report but I’ve had some awesome support to date. I’m still around $400 short towards my goal but I’m still leaving Nov 27th regardless. I am gathering supplies for the orphanage for when I leave such as:
- Batteries (AA, AAA)
- Anything else people have to offer
If you’re interested in contributing or even donating money let me know, I’d be happy to come pick up some stuff as long as you’re not too far away. Contact info as usual:

Now to the title of this blog Christmas In Haiti. There are two wonderful girls from Chatham, Ontario that are putting on a dinner to raise money to purchase presents for the kids at Maison Ke Kontan. Ke Kontan is the orphanage Emily Hime is running and that I will be assisting with for the next couple of months. Haley 18 and Nikki 19 will be visiting Haiti to deliver these gifts. The girls will be visiting the orphanage from December 18th-27th.
If you’d like to help contribute to their project, there are a few different ways, and here they are:
- Dinner at Blazing BBQ in Chatham, Ont. November 19th, 2012 from 5.00 – 7.00 PM. The dinner being served is Ribs, chicken, fries, coleslaw & baked beans. The tickets are $20 and you must buy a drink other than water (doesn’t need to be alcoholic). Tickets need to be purchased by Friday November 16th, so don’t wait!

- T-shirts: Although the T-shirts aren’t %100 finalized they will be similar to the picture below and will be One for $20 two for $30
Here’s where the T-shirt concept came from:
