Haiti's Orphans

Hi my name is Mia Celestin and I am 15 years old. This spring I went to Haiti with my father and while there we visited an orphanage. The orphanage we went to is called Our Father's House; it is located one mile outside of the town Peguy-ville, and hosts 100 children. This place is not only an orphanage,but a place of learning for the children that cannot afford to attend schools.  While I was there, I learned that the children needed basic school supplies for the upcoming school year. Even though the orphanage is in need of so much more than just school supplies, as a student, this is the area that I connected most with and where I thought I could help make a difference. I was moved by the staff because of their dedication and the commitment they had towards improving the lives of the children. I was also inspired by the children because of the amount of joy and respect they had towards each other and me - the visitor.  

Through this page my initial goal is to raise enough money to provide these children with the basic school supplies for the upcoming school year. Notebooks, pens, pencils, erasers and maybe even a book bag.  For about 12 dollars per child and with your help we can make this a reality.  I also did some research on shipping and clearing the supplies through Haitian customs and calculated that 2,500 dollars should take care of all the expenses. 

I hope I can count on your support to help me raise enough money to be able to deliver these supplies to the orphanage by August.

Thank you and please help me change these children's lives for the better; one small donation at a time will make a world of a difference.

Thank You - Mia Celestin
