To fully enact our reconstruction plan in Haiti we encourage you to fund raise with us; while many donors gave to us online, you can also organize your own 'lemonade stand' on our behalf. Here are a few of the inspiring ones we know about. We are immensely grateful for everyone who steps up to make good design available to the Haitian community.
