As many of you may know, I am on the Board of Directors and very involved with a nonprofit organization called Endeavor to Develop Education that raises money to provide scholarships to children in Haiti so they can attend school and get an education. We are currently helping 13 students and we want to be able to help 20 students starting with the next school year.
I am sure that many of you who read this blog have benefited greatly from your own education (formal and informal). Imagine briefly how different your life would look if you had not been able to get an education because your parents could barely afford to feed your family and the public school system was practically nonexistent.
You can help us change the life of a student in Haiti for less than a dollar per day. (Feel free to calculate for yourself what you would have to give up if anything to be able to come up with $1 per day). We would love to have you sponsor a year or more worth of education for a child in need. If you want to find out more about us then go to our website: http://www.edehaiti.org.
If you can only spare a little bit, then feel free to donate through the website or through ChipIn.
I can personally guarantee you that we do everything possible to make sure the money you gives us goes straight to the kids to pay for school, uniforms, books and supplies. Feel free to call or email if you have any questions.
