In May I worked with a dedicated group of fundraisers in Louisiana whose gala raises money to build homes for some of the poorest of the poor in Haiti. Each new home costs a mere $5000.
The emphasis at this gala is on the Fund a Need. Though there is a live auction, it’s only three or so items. Most of the focus is on the Fund a Need.
I thought this group went above and beyond by building a shack onsite. It visually demonstrated to guests what many Haitian families use as a home. You’ll see that in this video.
