Build A School Today
Transform a Community ForeverThe Door (Phase 1 of 7)
This door represents the new start -- the new future -- that this
school building will help bring for generations of young Haitians. Who
doesn't love that feeling of swinging open the door to your new home,
new classroom, or new office for the first time? A push of this door
opens more than just a classroom for these children; the creak of these
hinges are the sounds of possibility and hope.
Will you help open this door?
Here’s how you can help The Legacy Project: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.
Too cool! And very humbling. Your collective generosity launched this project forward very quickly! Watch the school continue to come to life on the Help One Now profile page
