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... The country is still in the rebuilding phase and I think every little bit counts. If [we] 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."
