Build A School Today
Transform a Community ForeverThe 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.
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
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.
