Be Like Brit Update

Just got off a call with the folks at Be Like Brit

The trip to Haiti has been scrubbed to 2016 due to safety concerns with the current election there. I have been monitoring the situation over the last few days. There’s been isolated acts of civil unrest and protests 🙁

So needless to say I won’t be traveling to Port-Au-Prince on 11/20/2015. While I am a bit bummed that I won’t be in the motherland for Thanksgiving, giving back and seeing the progress in Grand Goave at the Orphanage, interacting with the kids and enjoying 80+ degrees sunny weather — I know the decision to postpone the trip by the BLB staff in both U.S & Haiti was made out of abundance of caution. read more

Let’s Help Haiti Together!

I am heading to Haiti in November 2015, during the week of Thanksgiving (November 21-29), to volunteer at the Be Like Brit Orphanage located in the Town of Grand Goâve [pronounced Grangwav].

This will be my first service mission trip and I’m asking for your help to get me there, and to contribute to a good cause, that’s close to my heart – orphaned children and families in need.

During this trip I will join a group of fellow “Britsionarys” (a term coined by the Founders of this great non-profit) who will help around the orphanage as well as building and furnishing a small home for a Haitian family. read more
