The East Wall: Phase 3 of Legacy Project

Help One Now will build a school at Yaveh Shamma, an orphanage in Petionville, Haiti, to benefit the 30 orphans and 120 vulnerable children that currently attend a tent school and offer a safe space for the surrounding community.

East Wall (#1)
Raise the shield against human trafficking

Total Funding Needed:


Last week, we sent a simple tweet asking for some investors to give to the Legacy Project.

A 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.

Needless to say, we were amazed, excited and incredibly grateful.  This donation is an incredible opportunity for the Legacy Project.


Until the end of THIS Sunday, only five days from now, every donation that is given, every brick that is purchased to build this school, will be matched -- up to $9200! Read More Here

So donate between now and Sunday and double the amount you give!

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.  

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 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 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.
