Many thanks to my friends and family who thoughtfully donated to my son's Haiti fundraiser.  (If you don't know about it, please read here.)  If anyone sent a check directly to the school and didn't get thanks from me, it's because I wasn't aware!  PLEASE know that my son and I are truly grateful for any and all donations.  I want to give a special shout-out to Alison Hector at Embrace the Struggle, who sent a generous donation all the way from the great state of Maryland!  Her kindness earned her a phone call from my son's French teacher, who wanted to personally express her gratitude.  (Alison wrote earlier this year about Haiti two years after the earthquake here.)

Now, on to the $1 for Haiti Challenge.  Mrs. Pecsok, my son's French teacher, wrote today in the From Loveland to Haiti:  French Students Providing Hope blog post that they had reached the milestone of 9100 views.  (You can read the post here.)  One student marveled at how much money the class could raise if each person who viewed the blog gave just $1.  The $1 for Haiti Challenge is born!  Each and every dollar means so much to these kids, giving them a chance at education, nutritious food, and a safe environment in which to grow.  If you can spare just $1 (plus the cost of a first class stamp), you can help change the lives of the children pictured here

Details of the project as a whole can be found on the From Loveland to Haiti:  French Students Providing Hope blog here.  For specifics on the $1 challenge, click here.  Donations can be sent to:

Loveland Middle School
Attn:  Hilary Pecsok - French Class for Haiti Fundraiser
801 South Lebanon Road
Loveland, Ohio  45140
In this season of giving that is quickly approaching, could you spare a dollar for a child in need?  Even if you don't wish to donate, please check out the links below for more information on the kids of Haiti.  Thank you!
