Good Morning, Members, Friends & all earthlings!
As probably most of you know as it has been reported in the news 14
months after the devastating earthquake, progress is still so slow in Haiti
Tent Cities are still there. Last week 3 people died as a result of the
2010 earthquake when a house collapse on them. With that said, there
are still some steps being taken by various non-profit organizations, such
as Food for the Poor, Ecoworks International, and some socially councious
Members of Operation Green Leaves’ team working on the Environmental
center & volunteer village in Archaie. Haiti just came back from Haiti.
The mission was very productive. We are blessed to have Architect for
Humanity and other great Architectural firms donating their time and
talents to the project. We however need your financial support to make
the center a reality. Our goal is not only reforestation, but education &
training as well. to learn more about the project and to make a tax-
deductible donation, please visit http://www.globalgiving.org/6060
Restoring Haiti’s environment is a key element in the sustainable
reconstruction of Haiti. We must address the root cause of the
ecological destruction in Haiti. Provide alternative fuel souces and
energy & economic empowerment. Our motto is “Help Haitians Help
Themselves”. We are providing the tools to help our brothers & sisters
rise themselves out of poverty. Sharing a few pictures of one of our
partner orgnizations in Kenscoff, Haiti. Empowering a group of women
“Fanm kap plante”, Women who are planting. Also pictures of deforested
mountains of kenscoff. Please help in anyway you can. visit:

If you can spare $10, and are interested in helping us reforest Haiti, take a look at GlobalGiving.org/6060. This is the final week of a competition to raise $4000 from at least 50 doners. If we do, we get a position on GlobalGiving’s website. The competition ends 30 September 2010.
While your there, take a look at the other worthwhile organizations. Give $10 to a few of them. You’ll feel good because you helped several groups and they’ll feel good because they got some help for a total stranger.
Some people call it a random act of kindness.
Without the “kindness of strangers,” non-profit organizations will struggle. Help us, help Haitians, help themselves. Act Now! GlobalGiving.org/6060
