This weekend I will be selling items to raise money for our friends in Haiti. Many of you have been very generous, and contributed many of your discarded treasures, to help me raise a decent sum of money.
The money raised will be going to the translators who looked after me so well during my time volunteering in their country. As if life isn’t tough enough for these young boys, they have once again been affected by Mother Nature in last week’s storms.
This is Babby.
If you have read my blog you will recognise him from many excerpts including – teaching Babby to swim.
See ‘My Time in Haiti’
He has contacted me desperately looking for help as his ‘home’ was severely damaged during the storms:
“Melissa my house is very broken during big windy october 24th
