Today is #GivingTuesday!

We hope you will continue to show your support to our ongoing efforts in Haiti. We know that in these tumultuous times, there are many worthy organizations who may be on your giving radar.

One idea: donate to more than one group. Many of us at One Hundred For Haiti will give outside of our own organization this year as well. Ultimately, we hope that you give as much as you can afford to groups that most closely align with your hopes and concerns for the future. Put your money and actions into real substantive change, and in organizations like ours with little or no overhead.

As always, do your research and ask questions, and use your voice and wallet in the most effective ways possible!

We are so very thankful for your support on this day and every day.

LUSH partners with One Hundred For Haiti!

Posted on Nov 29, 2016 in Latest News

One Hundred For Haiti has entered into a partnership with LUSH (www.lush.com). LUSH has decided to provide us with partial funding for our Rural Water Project and GTPE Anti-Sexual Assault work. LUSH is amazing and we are so thankful for their support.

The next time you’re in a mall and see a LUSH store, please go in and tell them that you are thankful for them adding One Hundred For Haiti to their “charity pot” program which is a collective effort to support non-profits who are helping with humanitarian, environmental, and animal rights efforts. screen-shot-2016-11-28-at-5-38-37-pm

In downtown Seattle the other day I went in and thanked the people working in the Westlake Center LUSH store as if they were the decision makers for the whole company. They were so happy to make a human connection with the charity pot program recipients they sell products for daily. One girl said “This is so cool! I’m gonna cry!” I left before she did but it was still pretty great.

Thirty Days of Hope and Survival: a photo series

Posted on Nov 24, 2016 in Latest News, Uncategorized

Something to be VERY thankful for: for the last few days (and until we reach thirty days total) One Hundred For Haiti be posting a photo a day taken of our recent successes in Haiti. Our friend Tom Hudson has been on the ground to document where your donations have gone. The photo album is called #onehundredforhaiti #hopeandsurvival:

After Hurricane Matthew donations totaled over $8000. This was enough to send relief supplies to needy people and to start development work to replace thirty roofs on homes which people have been desperately trying, and failing, to survive in due to lack of shelter and lack of sleep. Reports from the south are dismal at best with people literally crazed from lack of sleep since the hurricane. Each roof is around $200USD (some more and some less).
 
In a time when we are all trying to figure out how to make the world a safer and better place for others, the photos we are posting will be proof of how your support made actual change happen in the lives of people in need.

New clean water tank in Haiti built and confirmed

Posted on Oct 28, 2016 in Uncategorized

After Hurricane Matthew, our local contacts in the north of Haiti have been inspired to make their communities safer for the future. They just sent us a photo of yet ANOTHER completed water cistern (which YOU provided the funding for!) to protect yet another group of families from cholera.

Each tank is locally designed and locally constructed, and catches naturally flowing water at its source and holds it so that it can be treated in the case of any natural event or disaster which might reintroduce cholera or contaminants from the water table.

Photos just in from Hurricane Matthew relief efforts

Posted on Oct 10, 2016 in Uncategorized

Photos just in from Haiti. Your donations are being put directly to work by One Hundred For Haiti. We partnered with trusted Haitian contact Thony Bellevue who put together the following support for people in need in the south and then delivered that aid directly to them in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew. Your donations have been part of a group effort which delivered:

• 278 kits (containing packets of crackers, bread, and other foods, personal items like toothpaste, toothbrushes, toilet paper, soap, Kotex)
• Clothes for 62 men
• Shoes for 28 men
• Clothes for 42 women
• Shoes for 53 women
• 12 hand saw
• 10 machetes 

Our partners report that they were also able to shelter:

• 5 big families
• 4 small families

And also give small amounts of financial support directly to 20 mothers who have babies under 3 years old.

This is just the beginning. Next we will likely be using your donations to support a pediatric team heading to the south. We are in communication with them today awaiting details and plans to make sure all money will be used as its intended. We will always act in ways which insure the best possible use for your donations.

Hurricane relief in motion

Posted on Oct 8, 2016 in Latest News

A note from Greg in behalf of the entire team:

“Your donations to One Hundred For Haiti got locally-sourced Hurricane relief in motion today in Haiti. Close to one hundred for these kits were put together by our contact in Haiti for direct distribution to people in need in the south. I stress “locally-sourced” because I don’t want to fall into the trap of shipping supplies to Haiti which costs twice: we pay for shipping to Haiti then local Haitians pay through losses incurred when free supplies show up in their country and undercut their sales or production of items available there already.

Nearly one hundred kits are going out this morning by truck from Port au Prince with a hundred more funded five minutes ago as I sit up with insomnia at 3:30am working from my phone.

Each kit contains packets of crackers, bread, and other foods, personal items like toothpaste, toothbrushes, toilet paper, soap, Kotex, and as funds allow, clothing and blankets. All locally sourced. All on the way.

You can help. www.onehundredforhaiti.org

More initiatives and action will follow in the next few days. We are in touch with multiple contacts in Haiti to determine the most effective use of your compassionately sent donations. Thank you all.”
