I hate to admit that yesterday I didn't realize it was the anniversary of the quake until the afternoon. 3 months ago a country that is dear to our heart was utterly wrecked and is still wrecked. I remember not leaving my computer for hours upon hours thinking if I did I would miss something. I would miss an update. I would miss an announcement. I would miss anything. It was a long couple of days around here and I know that many of you that read my blog experienced the exact same thing that we did. You too were yearning for your children and were praying for your friends and family that were there in Haiti during this.
I remember that we woke up the next morning to an email from Aaron's brother Tim telling us that he couldn't sleep the night before with the quake and Amos on his mind and he designed a shirt and wanted to know if we wanted to use it to raise money for Haiti. We jumped at the opportunity and Aaron, Bush & Shawn Fox spent hours at our house on the 13th getting a site up and going to sell shirts for Haiti. Our merchandise guy that does all of our online merch for Aaron's band gladly stepped up to the plate to do the selling and shipping. If it weren't for Chip and his guys at PortMerch.com none of those shirts would have ever made it to their destination!
*Green Help Haiti shirt that was a special for March. There are still a few available if you want one!
I'm excited to say that through those t-shirts we raised over $30,000 that was sent directly to 3 different organizations in Haiti that we love and trust. Did you read that? Yes you that bought a t-shirt from us …. you helped us raise over $30k that went to Haiti. From the bottom of our heart we say THANK YOU for your support of Haiti. Thank you for buying a shirt that will be a constant reminder to you and those that see you wearing it of Haiti. I hope it will continue to stir your heart towards a country that will be in need for years and years to come.
If you haven't yet bought your HELP HAITI shirt I encourage you to head on over to the helphaitishirt.com site and get yours today! You won't regret it.
Awesome! I LOVE my Haiti shirt and wear it weekly!
Awesome stuff!! We love ours!
That’s GREAT!!! It’s one of my favorite t-shirts, and I wear it all the time!
I watched a show made by Espn and aired on Saturday afternoon on ABC about Joe Mauer catcher for the Minnesota Twins, the show was set as a school assembly at his former high school, right behind the host of the show Rick Reily were 3 or 4 students wearing their Help Haiti t-shirts. Pretty Cool!
I have tears in my eyes. I’m so thankful that there are organizations such as RHFH and Heartline in Haiti. And, I’m wearing my green one right now!
Hi, I am a friend of Lindsay (Chaddrick) Slate, and I have been reading your blog for awhile. But have never commented (I don’t think I have anyway.)
I was just wondering if you knew of a charity called Hope For Haiti’s Children
Some people from my church are in charge of it, and a school I used to teach at collects coins for it every year.
Jana – thanks for commenting. 🙂 I have not heard of the organization. What church do you go to and what school ?
