We wanted to do a short post to let you know what happened with the money you spent on the OK Tee. We had the opportunity to visit Haiti at the beginning of July. We spent two days with about 150 kids at an orphanage in Salines Mayette. Shortly after the earthquake the UN brought about 30 orphans that needed a place to stay, and this orphanage opened their arms. When we asked them what their biggest need was, they said “water.” Every day, sometimes twice a day, they have to walk to get water from a well. What little they bring back is gone very quickly.
With the money that you and YBW raised from the sales of the OK Tee, which totaled about $1,500, the orphanage will be able to buy about 8 rain catchers to keep on the roof of the orphanage. Giving them an opportunity to collect and store the water they need.
Thank you for your support of these children. You are making a huge difference in the lives of these kids.
