Dear A Thousand Wordz and; D.N.A Brewing Organization:
As you know the response in the days following the earthquake in
were both immediate and critical. After my initial trip upon finding my mother safe, I knew that I had to return to Haiti and deliver immediate assistance to the people of Haiti . Currently to date the money we raised has allowed us to: Haiti
* Organized a Medical Clinic administered by
partners (Marly and Qaid) in conjunction with New York
doctors and nurses from Humanity First
* Provided additional medical supplies to the Humanity First Clinic in Turgeau
* Bought & Distributed food to Families in Trugeau: 525 lbs. of rice, 600 lbs. of beans, 118 lbs. of cornmeal,
155 lbs. of barley, and 120 lbs. of pasta
* Bought 100 large temporary housing structures made with canopies (10ft x 12ft) and tarps
* Installed 2 water filtration systems which will produce and provide over 1000 gallons per hour.
* Bought art from local artists to be sold at Fundraiser in
* Delivered 5400 gallons of filtered, potable drinking water
Your contribution of $500.00 will be directed towards rebuilding Targeau, an area of Port au Prince where my family is directly affected. We have identified a total of 9 homes & 1 school that need to be rebuilt. When others were still debating how to deliver assistance, we were doing it. In a matter of days and from hundreds of miles away from
we mobilized, found the resources and hand delivered them. We could not have achieved this without organizations like yours. Haiti
We are the conduit for the contribution to humanity that you wish to make. Every dollar you donate goes to help people in
affected by this devastating earthquake. I thank you for your faith in me to deliver assistance and create a better life for the people of Haiti . And I hope to have your continued support in this task to rebuild Haiti . Please continue to follow the progress we make via our website blog, www.strengththroughunity.org (L'Union Fait La Force). Haiti
With Sincere Gratitude,

We are brewing a beer named "Prince-of-Porters", and Haiti Hopeaweizen, which we're giving away for free at the event. We, however, HOPE you will honor our time and commitment to brewing these special drinks, and make a donation to our efforts to support Haiti in their time of need. (Some potential recipients) We have researched a number of non-profit organizations (501 c 3, both charitable, and corporate) to give our raised donations to give aid to Haitians in their time of need. You can also donate to two other causes; New Orleans, and a couple of local non-profits of your choice. Get at me if you are interested in helping. A Community Urban Soul Project Collaboration. Many collaborators to be mentioned. Stay tuned.
