Entering the world of blogging!


Hi everyone!

 Thank you for all the support you guys have given us; we honestly can not do what we do if we     don’t have people like you encouraging us, donating, and getting involved. Our group of teens thought it was time to get more people aware of who we are and what we do, so we’re starting to blog about our efforts to raise some cash for a village in Haiti! When people ask who we are and what we’re doing, we pretty much have a shortened explanation that we’ve gotten down to 30 seconds because otherwise we would talk all day about our goals. However I hope you find these blog posts, pictures, and updates a little more informative about our project! Our current project is to raise $15,000 to replace a generator that broke down while we were in  Haiti. This generator is used for everything; lighting the village at night, providing energy for the few electronics they do have access to, and most importantly, the generator was being used to run the computer lab. Without this computer lab, the Haitians are not able to communicate with people outside their village. You can imagine the problems that come with no electricity. While we were in Haiti last March it was the week of daylight saving, it took the villagers three days to get caught up with the world clock because of how hard communication can be in such a remote area. We hope our friends in Haiti will be able to use this generator to continue their efforts to educate their children and communicate beyond their borders. This is just our first project of many to come. We hope that you’ll join us in our journey and we will be updating everyone with our progress and upcoming events!
