RISE Ayiti, a non profit organization dedicated to supporting Haitian lead and operated projects, is having a benefit at the Artisan Venice Gallery (Winward & Pacific) on October the 2nd. There will be auctions and live music including Darin Bennett, Poshlush and new school hip hop from Bazerk.
From Angela at RISE Ayiti:
During our last trip, myself, a small band of volunteers and a team of locals built a 75 yr old woman a house. While there, we spoke with many Haitians that are trying to do what they can to help themselves and their country. We really admired their drive and the grassroots approach and believe that programs lead by Haitians themselves are the best way to rebuild the country. The current projects we are currently supporting are the building of a 60 child orphanage in Jacmel and an after school photography program for children.
