FUNDRAISING FUN today for TeacHaiti and July 9th for US!!!

Hello everyone!!!

We are all set up to be at the Twin Ports Bridge Festival on July 9th!!! "Connecting People. Celebrating Community". Cannot wait to see Michael Franti and Spearhead AND Cloud Cult!!! There is a rally for "Free the Hikers" planned, group yoga, a beer tent, and lots of stuff for kids as well. We have a LOT of hula hoops to make........a LOT. We will also be selling the tie-dye skirts, hoodies, socks, dresses, and yoga pants.

Today we are going to Detroit Lakes to support TeacHaiti school of hope! This is the school in Port au Prince that we love so much- if you look back to last November's mission there are a ton of pictures as we were able to visit the school and do their well child checks (and hand out wonderful handknit dolls, soccer balls, and stuffed animals galore).  This school was founded by our incredible friend Miquette Denie! She is here in Minnesota having a fundraiser for the school today in Detroit Lakes of all places. There is a silent auction, finger food, handcrafted jewelry (which we have here in Duluth too if you would like to check it out) made by the children during their sustainable living classes, and tshirts too!!! Miquette will also discuss the school and it's progress this year. It is truly the school of hope!!! The children are learning so much and also growing so much with their 2 meals each day that the school provides--believe me, that is so important for their developmentand it shows!!!

TeacHaiti school of hope will always be part of peaceloveHaiti's mission as we strive to provide vitamins and health support to the children on an ongoing basis.

That's it for now--- oh, and check out our dates (set in sand) for our next mission!

Love love and more love......
the peaceloveHaiti ladies
