Due to the incredible growth REBUILD Globally has experienced over the past year and a very generous donation from WorldwideModular construction, we are pleased to report that we happily grew out of our first location! On July 8, 2011, we had the honor to host an official ribbon cutting ceremony at our new shop. There were nearly 300 people in attendance with representation from Haitian businesses, government officials, volunteers, family and friends. It is a bit surreal to see one of our dreams turn into reality and so quickly, but this has inspired us to work even harder to reach our other goals. We know with the support of people like you, each one is possible. In our new shop, we are now able to provide partner organizations space, produce more quantity and produce a better quality sandal, but most importantly, when funding is available– we will be able to employ more artisans!
Thank you so much for your contribution to REBUILD Globally. Your gift is literally transforming the lives of individuals. You are the fuel that keeps this fire burning. And with a little more of that same love, we can turn this flame into a brushfire!
With love from Haiti,
