- Organize and host your own fundraiser - music concert, art sale, restaurant night, party...the sky is the limit! Just be sure to let us know about your fundraiser so we offer our help to prepare for and publicize the event.
- Buy Haitian metal art and/or host an art party! Haitian artisans create these beautiful metal pieces from 55-gallon steel oil drums that have been cleaned, flattened, cut by hand, and intricately patterned (click here to see a video). Hosting a “party” requires nothing more than inviting a few friends, neighbors, or coworkers and supplying the venue--we will set up the art display and do the rest.
