Pick one... anyone....

I have had several readers ask about how they can help my students in Delmas 33. Although Teach the World Online provides free English lessons to all students, there are some students who are still living in tents and in less than desirable conditions.  They are working very hard to go to school in addition to attending my English classes.  School supplies are almost inaccessible to most students.  The luxury of a spiral notebook and a pen that works is beyond the reach of some. Without a piece of paper and a pen, it's pretty hard to take notes, practice, do homework and share your knowledge with someone else.  I have opened an account which will allow me to transfer money to the students and although I am not a "nonprofit" you can be assured every penny you send, will be given directly to the students.  I will personally pay the transfer fee.  If you would like to gift any amount to the Delmas 33 students you may do so by sending it to Paypal.  Upon receipt of your money, I will transfer it to the student who is in the most need at the moment.  You can expect a thank you letter from that student, via e-mail within three days.  If they can find a camera, they'll also take a picture and send it to you. 

By sponsoring a student you can help fight poverty in Haiti by helping them have a pen and paper on which to write their homework. 

I can assure you, there is nothing more important that you can do than to help a person who desires something as simple as "a chance".

Here is a picture of my class.  Pick one.... anyone....

My First Moments in Haiti - with new my students

There is very little to say, I believe after you watch this movie you will know there are no words that could ever describe how we are feeling.
