Giving In Haiti
Black Celebrity Giving is heading to Haiti with one goal, give back! We need your help and support as we voyage to the country of Haiti in our first ever service mission trip. Giving in Haiti kicks off September 2nd- 6th, 2016.
During these days BCG and our amazing attendees will host a number of mission events benefitting a local orphanage, children's hospital and community center.
Raising these funds will allow us to serve the country and the people with unmatched service so we need your help! Funds will be used to help pay for shipping of our collected items to include:
School Supplies - Crayons, Construction Paper, Pens, Pencils, Markers and Binders.
Feminine Hygiene Products and Toiletries - Tampons can be up to $13 a box in Haiti. Items to collect include: Tampons, Maxi-pads, Feminine Wipes, Toothbrushes, Tissue, Toothpaste, Washcloths, Lotion and Deodorant.
Art Supplies - Canvasses, Paint, Paint Brushes, Crayons, Markers, Construction Paper, Crafts.
School Uniforms - We will provide one orphanage with a back to school shopping spree, youth will be able to get a school uniform as well as a play outfit, boys and girls underwear and socks all sizes are need.
Funding will also be used to help makeover a children’s hospital, provide a local orphaned youth with school clothing, supplies and shoes and provide citizens with care packages of food and toiletries.
Our goal is to serve over 3,000 Haitian citizens through the arts, health initiatives, clothing, toiletries and food. This year BCG celebrates five years of service in the US and embarking on a mission to serve in another country is a dream come true. Beyond a mission of service, our goal is to show the world just how beautiful Haiti is with an ultimate goal of increasing long term of increasing tourism and revenue to the country.
One task we'd really like to achieve is the makeover of the rooms at the Children's Home. I looked for pillows but they were so hard to find so now the mission is on for 50 beds, with sheets and pillows. Please stay tuned on how you can support this mission, would love to do this for Christmas, you can read my why in my latest blog post here: http://www.blackcelebritygiving.com/how-a-mission-trip-to-haiti-changed-my-life/
Sending a big thanks to our sponsors and partners - 40 Girls & Some Shoes, Beyond the Game, Creme of Nature, KIND, Team Sak Passé, Flat Out of Heels, Villa Nicole Hotel and Best Western. To everyone that made a monetary donation, provided donated items and even those that just kept us in your prayers, you are loved. I'm glad I allowed God to order my steps and I thank him for sending me 33 angels to serve with me in Haiti. I will be working on a strategic giving plan of action, because as the saying goes give a man some fish you feed him once, teach a man to fish and you feed him for life. My trip my be done in Haiti but my work is not, thank you!
On Sunday, we all visited Jacmel, where volunteers will have a beach day and relax, some volunteers also took a tour of the city. Today it's mission day again tomorrow and we'll be serving families at a local Community Health clinic.
