THANK YOU in advance for taking the time to stop by our page. We are a group of St. George area Realtors, friends, residents who are helping raise money for the "Children in Need" Foundation.
Contact them & donate DIRECTLY: http://children-in-need.us/
The Foundation for Children in Need is a non-profit volunteer program dedicated to relieving the suffering and improving conditions for Haitian communities in Haiti and the Dominican Republic. It is an AMAZING cause and we are HONORED to be involved!
See more about Founder Rebecca Maesato's amazing story here: Utahn With Ties to Haiti Rushes to Help With Rescue.
In plainer language, they have "adopted" orphanages in Haiti & the Dominican Republic that have essentially been abandoned - no support in Country or Foreign. PRIOR to the earthquake these kids were sleeping on concrete floors with no bedding, nothing. They are still awaiting word on one of the orphanages but know for a fact that the others have been crushed to the ground and at least 2 of their caregivers are dead.
What we are doing and How YOU can help!
We are generating needed funds in ANY way possible but currently and specifically, we are raising money through the sale of the "Savory Samplings" cookbook shown below. In addition to a TON of great local, regional & national recipes, this 100+ page cookbook contains handy guides for food equivalents, tips on baking perfect pastries & breads, and info on preparing for large groups.
The donation for books is $10 for 1 , $15 for 2. You can help RIGHT NOW by:
Purchasing 1 or more books for yourself, friends or family. They make SUPERB gifts
- Assisting your children in selling "door to door" or to school groups
- Just making a good ol' cash donation to the charity!
- Whatever you can give is HUGELY APPRECIATED!

Our Immediate Needs
The needs of these children are many. But what we need most RIGHT NOW, are the following (in order of priority):
- Money to purchase food, water & temporary shelter for each of the seven orphanages (please go to our website at ffcin.org or contact Leah Hullinger at [email protected])
- Donate air miles (please email [email protected])
- Travel agents to donate their services to book travel for volunteers (please email [email protected])
Our foundation will be putting together relief volunteer trips once the needs are assessed at the seven orphanages. If you are interested in volunteering in a future trip, please email your information to: [email protected].
Please forward this email to your many friends and family so we can reach as many people as we can. Sometimes people want to help but don't know how they can truly make a difference.
You can directly impact these children's lives with your donation, large or small.
