Healthy lunches for healthy minds on #GivingTuesday!

#GivingTuesday: Healthy Lunch = Healthy Minds

On November 27th, Free the Kids is participating in the global #GivingTuesday movement to support students who attend school at our Pwoje Espwa and Camp Perrin campuses – and we need your help!

#GivingTuesday is an annual event, held the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, that harnesses the power, love and generosity of people, communities and organizations all over the world in the spirit of philanthropy and the holiday season. 

This year, our goal is to raise $10,000 in 24 hours to provide 1 month of school lunches for 950 students.  

Providing a nutritious meal for a child is easy this #GivingTuesday.

I fell in love with Espwa during my first visit last year. Hard to put into words, but there was a real "heart" connection with the kids and staff. It is a special place. My visit was focused primarily on the girls and the teachers. Relationships were initiated during that first visit that I treasure very much!

There is hardly a more heartbreaking sight than seeing an orphan in Haiti--many of them who have families who simply cannot feed and clothe them. Of course there is the emotional response to their plight, but there is a more pragmatic hope--that given a chance in a loving, caring environment, these children can grow up to be leaders, people who can move their communities and the country itself in a positive, healthy direction.

This place is amazing! The kids and their caregivers will restore your faith in the human spirit. The magic of Espwa is that there is a childhood provided for the kids there that would not exist otherwise.Haiti has a very very long way to go, but this is a hopeful place with clean, well fed, happy children, teachers, house moms, and support staff. Fr Marc and all of the others should be very proud of their accomplishments. Help them in any way that you can!
