This young man skipped his coffee, simple and effective!
Wow, we are in week one of our 2-week #skipittogiveit campaign, and we are very excited to see how many churches around the world have decided to take part and join Star of Hope.
What can you skip? It's not too late www.starofhope.us/skip
We've been preparing for this campaign for a long time and some people have asked, how can you do this for Haiti after all the disasters that have happened here in America. Especially what happened in Houston, the tragedy the loss. It's unimaginable unless you've actually been there in Houston or a similar disaster.
Well, imagine that same destruction over and over and mothers and fathers starting over and over again. Crying and depressed as their family suffers. Then imagine there is no social network to help, no family with any means. This is the normal day in Haiti for a large part of the rural population. All are in the same boat, that boat is called ruin and hopelessness. That's why we could not stop the "Skip it to Give it" campaign,
We decided to do #skipittogiveit over a year ago and we have to stand by our word! Would you stand by yours? So, if you're wondering in the back of your mind why in the world are you doing this for Haiti when there's so much going on in the US right now the fires the flooding the Hurricanes it's because we gave our word that's the kind of organization we are.
We have now, what I think are some fun reports about what different people are skipping. Some photographs of some people just like you and what they will skip for Haiti.
Over the next few days, we will be presenting photos of different people showing what they skipped.
Star of Hope's work in Haiti began in 1974. We work with primary and elementary school activities as we share the Gospel. The goal of our school projects is to provide children with a good start to life and a better future through education.
We currently run seven schools in Haiti. All children receive basic education and school lunch. They have access to clean drinking water and toilets. The school year begins in September and ends in June. Teachers are trained on a regular basis.
It's not just the schoolchildren who get help. We also work with long-term urban development projects, which many thousands of villagers are taking part in.
