BIG, Huge, Wonderful ANNOUNCEMENT
Last week, we sent a simple tweet asking for some investors to give to the Legacy Project.
few hours later we received an email from someone requesting more
information. The next day, we received another email from her husband
with a commitment.
to say, we were amazed, excited and incredibly grateful. This donation
is an incredible opportunity for the Legacy Project.

Build A School Today
Transform a Community Forever
The East Wall (Phase 3)
One of the tragedies of Haitian life is the fact that child
trafficking is a reality. Every week, children are taken from their
homes (and, terribly, given from their homes) to a life filled with
indentured servitude, slavery, or worse. The walls of this school
building will serve as one more deterrent, both symbolically and
physically, to a terrible fate.
Will you help shield 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 seven 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.
