Awesome news and thanks to Julia we got some publicity in the local news paper (Windsor Star) the online article was awesome! Unfortunately they spelled some things wrong on the actually news paper copy and shortened the article a rather large amount, but all publicity is good! Here’s the article from online.
A fund raising dinner will be held to help a Windsor man travel to Haiti to help construct an orphanage for a Chatham-based charitable organization operating in the Caribbean nation.
Julia Monk, an area film maker and supporter of the Hime For Help organization, established by Chatham native Emily Hime, said that a dinner will be held at the Caboto Club in Windsor on Thursday, Oct. 11, to help Justin Parkinson raise the funds to travel to Haiti and work on the construction of the Caleb House orphanage in Lanzac, Haiti.
Monk said she is making a documentary about the journey and the work of the charity. The orphanage was founded by Hime this past year and now houses 10 children, said Monk. She said the goal is to expand the facility. Tickets for the pasta dinner, complete with entertainment, are $25. Those interested are asked to visit the group’s Facebook charity fundraiser page at facebook.com/justinhime4help.
Monk said Parkinson, a recent graduate of Fanshawe College and the Specs Howard School of Media Arts in Michigan , plans to remain in Haiti and continue working on the project.
Thank you Julia for the on-going assistance!
