Renee's Housewarming PARTY!

$3,320 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 32 people in 31 months
For almost 13 years my favorite baby sister, Renee Dietrich, has lived and worked in Haiti for the St. Joseph Family. This fall she, and the Wings of Hope family, will move into their new home in Jacmel. Renee needs some help moving into her new home and making it the space she has dreamed of. I was fortunate enough to have housewarming/wedding/baby showers in my life and I want her to have the same warm feeling.  After 13 years of volunteering her time and heart to the St. Joseph Family, it is time to give back to her and help her make her new space her home. Her new space at Wings of Hope in Jacmel is bigger than anywhere she's lived for the past 13 years and those rooms need to be filled with furniture and items to make it comfortable and functional. Furniture in Haiti is expensive, either to purchase in the US and ship, or to purchase in Haiti; and there are things you need in Haiti that you don't need in the US, like inverter systems and batteries. Please help give Renee the ultimate Haiti Housewarming Party by helping her furnish her new space at Wings of Hope in Jacmel. In honor of her 13 years in Haiti, let's raise $5000 to welcome her to her new home. (Any funds beyond what she needs to furnish her new space, she can use to come visit me & my adorable grandkids!)

LATEST UPDATE FROM RENEE:
"I met with the carpenter we use this morning. I'm having him build a couple of tables that will be my desk and some book shelves for my office area. Those are things I thought I was going to get from Ikea, but the shipping was too difficult and expensive. He is charging more than they would have cost at Ikea, but they will be much sturdier than what the Ikea ones would have been, plus no shipping or customs costs or headaches and he is making money for his family. Seems like all good reasons to do it this way. It uses up all of the GoFundMe money.

I'm going to go look at beds, couches, and refrigerators on Friday to see what is out there and how much more those will be. I looked and priced the modular kitchen cabinets I want. I just have to figure out what will fit in that tiny space. I also need to get the utility sink for the laundry area.

Then there are the small things to make it complete. "
