Spring has sprung, and things at HTDC are busier than ever.

The orphanage’s directors are working hard to find the funding they need to build a new permanent home, but in the meantime they still need you! With your fantastic support, we’ve been able to pay the rent. That means that the orphanage has a safe home until November of 2014! We’d like to thank each and every one of your for your incredible generosity.

However, after paying the rent we only have two months of running costs left. That means that without your help, we’ll run out of funding for food, water, school, and health care in July.

Happily, GlobalGiving is here to help us raise what we need! This mother’s day, when you donate to support Bodlyson and Kenson in your mom’s honour, GlobalGiving will top up your donation by $5 and your mom will receive a beautiful card. Click here to give your gift.

If you’re not in a position to give again this mother’s day, you can still help secure food, education, and health care for Bodlyson, Kenson, and all their friends by sharing this link with friends and family. 

Thanks so much for all you’ve already given, and our warmest regards from Haiti!

You keep them healthy and happy!

All 27 children at the HTDC orphanage are doing what they do – thriving!

The kids recently had their Easter vacation, and they loved their time off. Like many kids in the US, they enjoyed Easter egg hunts, a special meal, and attended mass.

Now, it’s back to work at school for the final semester of the 2013 school year. All of the kids are doing well in school thanks entirely to you! Your donations provide teachers, school supplies, and, when needed, extra help. Thanks so much for all you’ve given!

Your support not only meets the kids’ day-to-day needs – it also gives the directors the ability to plan for the future. The orphanage directors are not content to continue living in the rented house you’ve helped them secure – they have a piece of land and they’re planning to build a whole new structure. We’ll keep you updated as these plans develop.

Thanks again for all you do, and our warmest regards from Haiti!

With your support, the kids at the HTDC orphanage are learning fast. They love school, and the older kids delight in helping the little ones learn their letters and numbers.

But it’s not just about schoolwork at the orphanage. Haiti recently celebrated its major yearly festival called carnival.  The staff marked the event with a party – and the kids all dressed in costume! They had an absolutely brilliant time.

Without you, the children and staff at the HTDC orphanage would spend their days worrying about where their next meal was coming from instead of deciding on the best costume for carnival. Your generosity makes all the difference.

Tomorrow, GlobalGiving will be matching all donations by 30%. That means that tomorrow, if you give just $23 you could feed all 27 children in the orphanage's care for a whole day.

We hope you’ll help provide a secure future for the kids at the orphanage by making a donation tomorrow. If you can’t give, we hope you’ll share this link with friends and family and let them know how easy it is to change lives in Haiti!

Thanks so much for your support, and we wish you all the very best!

Show them some love this Valentines Day!
Show them some love this Valentines Day!

It’s already February and the kids at the HTDC orphanage have had a great start to the year. They all did great in their recent progress exams and they’re planning field trips for the summer.

Their success and bright outlook for the future is all down to your generosity. Without you, they would be spending their days worrying about where their next meal was coming from instead of playing with their Christmas presents!

This Valentines day, we hope you’ll keep the kids in mind by making a donation in honor of your Valentine. When you make a donation, your Valentine will receive a beautiful card which makes a lovely, meaningful Valentines Day gift.

To buy a gift card for your Valentine just click here, choose what type of card you’d like to send, and you’ll have an instant Valentines day gift that adds a little more love to the world!

Thanks so much for all you’ve already given, and we wish you a very happy Valentines Day!

We can’t believe your generosity. This holiday season, you gave an extraordinary $9,599! Because of your fantastic generosity, we’ll be able to keep providing the education, health care, and safe housing that these beautiful kids need to thrive.

Thanks to you, they’re starting 2013 full of joy and hope – and we hope you are as well! 2013 no doubt holds challenges.

There are always new mountains to climb in Haiti. But we’re ready to tackle them. Together, we can build a sustainable future for the Hands Together to Defend the Children Orphanage.

Thanks so much for all you’ve given and we wish you a fantastic start to 2013!
