Machan Chabon

My name is Valerio Saint-Louis I am a media personality /journalist along with other concerned Haitian citizens living in the diaspora and in Haiti we decided to create that campaign in order to help and change people's life in order to influence the betterment of our country.
After a long period of planning I have decided to start working on helping to better the life of a "Machan Chabon" a charcoal vendor in the streets of Port-au- Prince, Haiti.
This Machan Chabon will finally have a pampering day which she will remember for the rest of her life by undergoing a total makeover .
She will be taking to the hair salon for a new hairdo then to an upscale spa for a facial, a massage, manicure and pedicure. We will continue this memorable day by taking her shopping for new clothes, dining in the finest restaurant, staying at a five star hotel for the night with her family , and at the end a substantial amount of money will be allocated for the growth of her business.
We are looking to raise funds to help us change the life of a Machan chabon and at the same time stop Haiti's deforestation by offering her a better alternative with synthetic charcoal so they can stop cutting the trees..
We need the funds to implement this project.

The Machann Chabon name is Sonia Frank she is 37 years old with 3 kids on her own with no husband, Sonia is a poor lady striving to make a living despite her difficult situations in Haiti, we will be helping better her life by first doing a make over for her, she will be picked up on a vehicle with chauffeur and taken to stores in Petion-Ville so she can shop for her self and her kids then to a beauty salon for a pampering day she will go to a nice restaurant for a nice dinner, she will go food shopping to a local supermarket and finally she will rest at a five stars hotel .
Money will be given to her in order to set up her business the proper way, she will be educated on how to conduct her business and make profit, then we will purchase the synthetic charcoal for her to resell so she can start changing people's habit on using wood charcoal witch is the main cause of the deforestation of our beloved country Haiti.
All that will be documented by our team of professional filmmakers to show to the rest of the world how we can put our hands together in other to better some one's life and in consequences better our country.
