As I mentioned on the blog before, my sister, Kira went to Haiti on a mission trip in June for her birthday, as Haiti still has not recovered from the earthquake that plagued the city a few short years ago. She was so moved in Haiti that she has decided to move to Haiti this October for ten months and volunteer as a teacher! But she needs your help to do it!
If you are in New Jersey or the tri-state area and are able to attend, be sure to stop by one of the following events at Hush Salon (located inside Burlington County Mall):
September 1, 2012 10am-4pm: Hush 4 Haiti Bake Sale September 9, 2012: Blow Out Poverty - Blow-outs and men’s clipper cuts will be available to guests for a minimum donation of $25.
If you are unable to attend but still would like to give, please visit gofundme. 100% of the proceeds will go to Foundation for Peace to help strengthen the continuing fight against poverty. A fabulous article has been written about Kira's journey over at HerSoulInc which I highly encourage you to read before you give. If you would like to view photos of Kira's first visit to Haiti, click here. Finally, to follow her journey on Tumblr, you can click here. Thank you for your help! It is greatly appreciated!
