Ways to Help

Thanks so much for your support of our mission in Haiti.

Without folks like you, our work here would be impossible. Eighty percent of Haitians live on less than $2 a day. Poverty is pervasive but there are so many ways that you can get involved to alleviate suffering here.

Here are some easy ways you can help:

Ask your employer if your donation is Matching Gift eligible. If your company participates, your gift could double or triple.  Please use our email contact function to discuss this further.

Air Miles allow us to stretch our staff travel budget and spend more on the kids!  If you have some miles that are expiring, or just want to give us a nice gift, please contact

Shop at and Free the Kids will receive a percentage of your purchase!   Just click above, register for Free the Kids Inc Greensboro, and remember to use every time you shop.  Every little bit helps when we are trying to care for so many.

Use as your search engine. When you go to and choose us as your designated charity, we will get 1 cent for every search you do. We are listed as Free the Kids (Greensboro, NC). You only need to choose us the first time you search. After that, every search will automatically put a penny in our account. Goodsearch is powered by Yahoo, so you will be searching with one of the major search engines.

Join IGive, It’s Free! They have agreements with hundreds of major retailers worldwide! When you do your online shopping  through IGive, a portion of the proceeds from your purchase will go to benefit the children in Haiti. Here’s a quick video to learn how IGive works.

Tell your friends about the work we are doing in Haiti and encourage them to visit our website and sign up for email updates. We need more supporters so that we can step up our efforts and make a greater impact. Over 88% of your donor dollars go directly to benefit the children in Haiti. To date, we have been able to run a “tight ship” because of our grass-roots fundraising efforts. But in order to sustain this approach, we need you, our supporters, to be a voice for our children and get the word out.

Make your home page so that you can check in every day and see the progress we are making in Haiti. Fr. Marc’s blog on our home page is updated daily.

Make a Donation Your dollars will do priceless works of mercy in a country where thousands go hungry ever day.  A monthly donation will help us to have some steady income to rely on. No monthly amount is too small. And you can change your mind at any time and cancel.

Like us on Facebook, and keep track of us and our friends.

Follow us on Twitter, and  spread the good news about our work in Haiti. @Free_the_Kids

Most importantly, remember us in your prayers as we continue to persevere in the fight on poverty.

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!
