Kids in Haiti need your help. Many kids can’t afford to go to school, so they are asking for some donations. The amount it takes to send one child to school in Haiti for a whole year is $100. That money pays for teachers, books, school supplies, and lunch. The Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth, Convent Station, New Jersey, have set up a project so that it is even easier to reach their goals. The project’s name is Circle of Friends. It encourages you to get together with five friends and each donate $20 to help these kids. We would like as many people as possible to donate. $100 may not seem like a lot, but it can change these kids’ lives forever. For more information please go to https://www.scnj.org/.
