Hey there, friends!

We’ve set our sights on a new project for this spring that we are thrilled to share with you!

In January of 2010, an earthquake devastated the beautiful country of Haiti. Since then, Haitians have been rebuilding homes, schools, clinics…entire villages. Their story of resilience and hope is incredible. We have had the privilege of getting connected with a group called Haiti Transformed that has spent the last 5 years helping the restoration process move forward in an area called Leogane.

Part of this process has including the building of a grade school. Something we love about this work is that the people of Leogane are being empowered to build their own kind of school: not necessarily what a child in another country would expect out of a school, but a school perfectly fit for Haitian children. This project has employed men and women in Haiti and also brought the vital service of education to this village.

The exciting thing for us is that we have been invited to play a part in this beautiful journey! This spring, the Glow Campaign is raising $5,000 to fund a classroom in Leogane, Haiti.

You read that correctly. $5,000. That seems like a lot of money for kids to raise. But kids helping kids is a powerful idea & we really think it can happen.

Over the next few months, you’ll be hearing about projects that you can be a part of to be part of this project: we really need your help!

If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation online, you can give through our GoFundMe page.

Thanks for being a part of helping create a brighter future for kids with the Glow Campaign!
