Transform a Community Forever


The Furnishings (Phase 8 of Legacy Project)

On a practical level, furnishing the school with desks and chairs and pencils seems rather obvious (and possibly even anti-climatic), but it is still incredibly important. Who knows what possibilities await the students as they sit at their desks for the first time?  The pencil shavings, the ink stains, the dust from the chalkboard are all tools that lead to more opportunities for our students and the changes that they will bring to their communities and country.  


Will you help equip them?



Here’s how you can help:

1) Buy a brick for $25.  Or two.  Or 6. Or a Bundle for $250.  This is a huge undertaking, but we can do it together--brick by brick.  

2) Tell your friends.  Tweet, post, email, shout really loud . . . we need everyone to share our affiliate link.  We need to sell 4,000 of these to get the job done.  

3) Shop.  No, really.  The catch is that you have to do it through the Pure Charity website's online partners (like GAP, Target, J. Crew & Apple).  They will donate a percentage to your Online Giving Fund which then you pass on to this project.  

4) Come back in two weeks to celebrate! We will give this to Pastor Gaetan and Yaveh Shamma for Christmas, so visit us again to see the videos and hear the stories about how your generosity helped change this community!



The Story:


Pastor Gaetan took in 14 orphans before the earthquake in Haiti.  He and his wife knew it was the right thing to do.  After 2010’s devastating earthquake took the lives of so many, including his brother and many members of his church, Pastor Gaetan found himself with 16 more orphans in his care.  Since then, we’ve been able to help him build safe buildings to house the children and his family, and he has built a tent school that serves his 30 orphans as well as 120 vulnerable children from the surrounding community.  We are going to build a permanent structure in place of the tents to offer more safety, security, and protection from the brutal Haitian sun.  

Much of our materials will be made in Haiti by Haitians, and the structure will be constructed by Haitians as well.  This way, we can also help grow the Haitian economy at large, creating jobs and helping the workers to provide for their families.
