Within a few hours after our second meeting, we received word that we met our funding goal of $5,500. We honesty didn't expect to meet our goal so quickly, and with 18 days left fundraise, we are even more inspired to do as much as we can in the time we have before leaving.
With that said, we are looking to exceed our initial goal by $1,000, which will go towards a comprehensive first aid kit for the school, medical supplies, and additional art supplies. We are kicking around ideas for how we will use the most of our time in Haiti, along with Melissa and the rest of the Wings Over Haiti team, we are looking forward to making a difference in the community of Croix des Bouquets and Port au Prince.
Now off to figure out logistics – we have a lot of work ahead of us!
Your HOPE Art team,
Amanda, Melissa, Jacqueline, Jenni & Julie
