UPDATE on Haiti
THIS IS AN UPDATE TO MY ORIGINAL POSTING ON THIS (BELOW)
Thanks to all the homeschool families who have sponsored buckets and buckets of Cibo. Thank to those who have offered to talk to friends, families and churches about this response to the children of Haiti.
A generous donor has offered to match every $30 bucket sponsored with a donation of their own - up to 600 matched buckets! This 1200 buckets could conceivably be matched by the Canadian Governments' matching program (2400 buckets!).
This means that for every $30 bucket your family sponsors, three others buckets could be added to the container. Transportation will be provided by Global Aid Network. GAIN already has people working in Haiti and ready to oversee distribution to those in need.
In addition to the kids they already house, orphanages in Haiti will be crowded with newly orphaned children. This need will not end quickly
We still need people who are willing to talk to their churches or workplaces about this effort. If you would like a sample bucket (empty) and some information people can read, please give me a call.
If you would still like to make a donation, please do so though www.foodforfamine.org. Go to the donation page and donate through Global Aid Network.
Please be sure to note that the donation is for Cibo so our matching donor can track the number of buckets we have raised funds for.
100% of donations will be used to manufacture Cibo.
