Helping Haiti Happy Hour Chairperson Nohemie Pascal Says:
"A family member of mine recently took a trip to Haiti and shared pictures and stories of some of the things that he saw there. It shocked me and my heart went out to them (especially being from Haitian descent, it hit home). Despite the fact that Haiti was no longer the trending topic on Twitter or Facebook. And not on the cover of every newspaper or on every news channel, Haiti still needed help. I didn't want the people of Haiti to think that we had forgotten about them. The country is still in the rebuilding phase and I think every little bit counts. If I can bring a smile or some kind of joy in someone else's life, why not?! You'd be amazed the little things we take for granted mean the world to others.
I also, want for people to be able to track their donations and share the experience by viewing pictures of the 4HNYC fundraiser journey. From beginning to end. Be able to see volunteers stuffing bags and even be able to see the children with their bags. Just be able to see the difference they have made and how they impacted children in Haiti."
About The Event:
