169 Penny Harvest schools from around the country pledged a total of $27,420.
In the 2009-10 Penny Harvest, roundtables from NYC, Seattle, Ohio and Colorado engaged in meaningful discussion and debate to decide how to best allocate the amassed fund. Click here for the full story.
Stay Tuned! In the upcoming weeks, the organizations we have partnered with: Ecole Le Bon Samaritain, Clean Water for Haiti, Haitian Women for Haitian Refugees and Konbit Pou Edikasyon are going to prepare a report, which will be sent out to all pledged schools, detailing their proposed use of the funds you have allocated.
The Action Guide is a student friendly packet that contains stories about issues that many Haitians face and information about our partner organizations currently working in Haiti. In about 1 meeting, your students will be able to discuss how the earthquake has effected Haiti and the organizations that are working to help.
The incredible earthquake that shook Haiti on Tuesday, January 12, 2010 at 4:53pm was the strongest the country had experienced in over 200 years. We were all saddened to see the huge amount of damage it has done to the island and the people. We know during natural disaster such as these that we must come together as one community to make a great impact.
We are committed to providing our students with meaningful opportunities to give back and make a lasting impact. We invite all roundtables to read through The Action Guide to learn about pressing needs and how to reach out to local organizations helping efforts in Haiti.
