Saving Street Children and Orphans In Haiti, YOU Make the Difference!

To Make a Donation Visit

Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!  As a result of the kindness and generosity of H.E.R.O. supporters across the nation, and the world, we raised $20,156.00 towards the continued operation of our programs that benefit the street children and orphans of Haiti!  I cannot thank our donors enough for their bigheartedness and willingness to donate to H.E.R.O., even during the worst economy since the depression.  Your contributions are greatly appreciated!

There are those in our H.E.R.O. family, however, that are much more appreciative than I.  These include the 5 orphans in our H.E.R.O. Transition Home for Orphans and the over 70 children in the Education Program for Street Children.  Every day, the five children in our H.E.R.O. home show their appreciation for what has been provided for them.  They say please and thank you at all times, put games back where they are supposed to go, study hard every day during their tutoring sessions, smile at every meal they receive, and most importantly, help others when they are in need.

It is our goal to raise our children to understand the importance of giving back to their family, their community, and their country.  Our children don’t have a dime to their name, but are intelligent, and where one is lacking academically, others can help.  If Robenson doesn’t know how to count from 1-100, it is not solely my responsibility, or his teachers’ responsibility to help him, it is also the responsibility of the other children in the H.E.R.O. home, to help him.  If Franky doesn’t know all the letters in the alphabet, then it is our responsibility, all of us, to help Franky achieve that goal.  Too often we think of success as singular, becoming a doctor, a lawyer, having one million dollars.  At H.E.R.O., however, we don’t believe that you have truly succeeded until you use your talents and good fortune to help others.  When I help you to learn how to count or how to read, I am not doing this for you to become successful.  I am doing this so that when you do become successful, in the future, you will do the same for others.  In this manner we change the definition of success from being about me, the individual, to being about the success of others.  I am not successful until we are successful.

Which brings me back to how thankful I am for our donors that went above and beyond during the month of July: to help H.E.R.O. raise the funds necessary to continue helping the orphans and street children of Haiti.  Thank you for making the decision to share your success with our organization, so that we may continue to provide housing, education, and rehabilitation for the children of Haiti.  The United States is facing the worst recession since the depression, unemployment is nearly 10% and our economy is weak.  Yet, through all this, our donors make the decision that supporting H.E.R.O. and helping Haiti is a priority in their lives.  I cannot thank you enough for your dedication.  Thank you!
