We are helping people in the country of Haiti. They share the island of Hispanolia with the Dominican Republic. Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. A 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit Haiti Jan 12, 2010 killing over 300,000 people and leaving over 1 million homeless.
The money that is raised will be used to purchase a few more much needed woodworking tools such as drill press, bandsaw, midi lathe, cutting tools, and pen parts.
This fundraiser will enable us to further our fundraising ability. Your giving keeps on giving. We buy more needed tools. We handmake the items and sell them. By helping us you will be make it possible for us to continue our operation and give money where it is needed. Unlike many fundraisers for Haiti we give the money to people in need directly. Our giving is, and not limited to, those who are in need of food, clothing, school supplies, school tuition (not free in Haiti) shelter and etc.
