Unique Way to Help Haiti
February 17th, 2012 | Published in An Encouraging Word
I would like to personally invite you to a very unique event to bring awareness to Haiti and help us raise money to rebuild the clinic in Calebasse. My friend, Pedro Palacios, owner of The Rowing Place, is again hosting HEART activities for Haiti. In 2010 he organized four teams of 3 persons where each team rowed for 90 minutes to raise money. Pedro is doing this event again. This is a very healthy & unique way to bring love of Christ’s people to Haiti. Please check out his website www.nolimitsrowing.com and join him on Saturday March 10th at 8 am. We will row 1 hour in teams to raise money to build a new clinic in Haiti. The goal is $5000.
Yes – I am going to row as well to show my support and encouragement to Pedro and Haiti. Perhaps you would sponsor me or another member? All the money will go toward the clinic. People can sponsor me for one cent per meter rowed, become a matching sponsor, or just a flat amount for the time rowed. I will be rowing on a concept 2 rowing machine.
You can join us at the Rowing Place 673 Wilmer Ave Suite D and help row for Haiti. Also, see us on FOX 19 Friday March 9th at 8 am. Pedro and I will be interviewed by Sheila Gray promoting this event. FOCAS asks everyone to pitch in and support our medical, restorative, and evangelic
efforts to the Haiti people, and consider a fund raiser as a unique and loving way to show love to God’s people. Please pray for innovative ideas and contact FOCAS if you want to lead such an effort.
