Happy Haiti

Tonight, Kyle and I will be double-dating in celebration of our 6th wedding anniversary.  Mom got us tickets to a Jazz for Peace benefit for the organization, Happy Haiti.  This organization is raising money for many projects to help out Haiti.  Here's what they plan on doing (straight from their website):
"As native Haitians themselves, the Kreative Images Foundation aided with the development of the Czichomski’s nonprofit (Happy Haiti Foundation).
Even before the recent earthquake disaster the Czichomski’s had donated multiple acres of land to address the poverty in Haiti (land located in Morne Tranchant, between Kenscoff and Furcy, valued at $800,000.)  Now after the earthquake catastrophe, Happy Haiti’s services are needed even more.
In addition to building dome housing to replace the multitude of inhabited shacks, the Foundation is on target to build a trade school campus, which will create local jobs and provide needed employment training, thereby impacting the local economy. The training facility would also teach English, French, Spanish, Arts & Crafts, Woodwork and other trades.
Additionally the foundation’s long-term goals are to build roads, install sewage systems, water wells and latrines."
I would like to encourage anyone who would like to help out to visit their website and donate.  This is a worthy cause, and it is sure to change and impact many lives.  http://happyhaiti.org/
