HAITI IN:SIGHT – A Soulful Benefit for Healing in Haiti

From: Ayiti Resurrect


As the one-year anniversary of the earthquake approaches, let’s continue to raise our awareness and keep HAITI IN SIGHT! This benefit will raise money for a grassroots healing project led by the people of Haiti and supported by a community of delegates from the Caribbean and African Diaspora. Join us for an enlightening evening of performances, dancing, and multi-media art — all providing a lens through which the beauty and power of Haiti will be experienced and honored. We will take the opportunity to learn more about the aftermath of this unnatural disaster from our partners on the ground. And we will contribute to the healing and sustainability of Haiti.

Fund raised monies will go directly to fund healing operations on the ground for Spring 2011 trips to Haiti: materials to host and facilitate various workshops on skill sharing and community building; ground transportation; living expenses, including food and water for the community in which we’re working. Also, 50% of funds raised through the Silent Auction from Carl Thelemaque’s art will go directly to the community in which he works in Croix des Bouquet. And some of the total benefit proceeds will go towards relief efforts in the community we are working with in Leogone – because of the recent flooding from Hurricane Tomas.
