In an effort to help young #Haitians think more critically and be less susceptible to superstitions and falsehoods, Color of Hope produced a scientific method poster in Creole. Now we need your help to distribute as many as I possibly can to educators, schools and other educational institutions in #Haiti.

A $25 contribution will provide 10 Creole Scientific Method posters for education. Our goal is to provide 10,000 posters to display in classrooms throughout Haiti. #IstandwithHaiti #scienceforHaiti #EducateHaitiansForHaiti #EdikeAyisyenPouAyiti

The event begins in Broward and ends in Palm Beach County at the beautiful Bryant Park on the Intracoastal Waterway in Lake Worth. The event will conclude with live music, vendors, fun activities for children and adults alike and a special tribute to Martin Luther King.

If not you, then who? If not now, then when? #Haiti needs you.

It’s unfortunate to learn that the death toll from #Hurricane #Matthew in Haiti has surpassed 800.  We are raising awareness and support to help provide relief.

I Stand With Haiti” is an initiative to restore and sustain the lives of those affected by hurricane Matthew. Click here to take the “I Stand With Haiti Pledge

Our work in Haiti is 80% transformational, which means we are always working. We aid in natural disaster relief and ensure that the long term impact is also considered. Our experience during the 2010 earthquake and our ongoing efforts on the ground, have equipped us to be much more efficient and get the help directly to those in need.

We have some supplies in storage and people on the ground ready to go. Any funds donated to Hurricane Matthew relief will be used to purchase necessities directly from Haitians, to support  business in Haiti. The people of Haiti have been suffering ever since the earthquake. It hasn’t stopped. Please show your support #IstandWithHaiti
