Supporting Haiti: Not as cool as it once was; but still much needed.

11 Oct

Check out our brand new ‘Lansing for Haiti’ promo video:

This video was captured on our May 2011 trip to Haiti, shot and edited by Kris Bargen of Skinny Man Productions – excellent work Kris!

You can give a tax-deductible donation to our work with World Relief Haiti by clicking here.  After installing 10 peanut butter mills in 10 churches in Cite’ Soleil (the poorest slum in Haiti, located in Port-au-Prince), current donations are going to support agri-business microloan initiatives.  Microloans are small sums of money lent to farmers to start farming businesses in Cite’ Soleil.  When they pay back the loan, they receive a bigger loan.

If you can volunteer or are interested in running or walking in our 2nd Annual Haiti 5K on Saturday (afternoon), January 7th, 2012, shoot me at email at 5K@lansingforhaiti.com and I’ll make sure you get the details as soon as they’re ready – this race commemorates the anniversary of the January 12, 2010 earthquake.

See more info on our work in Haiti by visiting our Lansing for Haiti website.
