HaitiChildren 2014 Gala for Haitian Children’s Relief

Blog by Nicole Weaver

Nicole-SusieThe other night I attended a most amazing event: my first HaitiChildren Haitian Gala. HaitiChildren is a one-of-a-kind organization whose mission is to provide care and education to abandoned, orphaned, and disabled children in Haiti.

I first learned about HaitiChildren after reading the book Angels of a Lower Flight: One Woman’s Mission to save a Country…One Child at a Time by the organization’s CEO, Susie Scott Krabacher. I read it in one day and immediately became Krabacher’s number one fan. Her story touched me so deeply that it moved me to action. Haiti trip planner . I made the decision to support HaitiChildren financially.

Susie’s story made me stop to think that we do not have to let life’s curveballs define who we become in life. Having been sexually abused by her grandfather from age four until eight, Susie made a sound decision to not let her past impact her future in a negative way. She used her pains as a way to reach out to other children who had struggled with the same lack of self-worth that she had.

Her good deeds have made it possible to help educate the forgotten, feed the hungry, house the neglected, show mercy and dignity to the abused, and empower a new generation to hope and sustainability in my native Haiti.

Twenty years later, HaitiChildren is still going strong. The gala was held to raise additional funds to help reach more abandoned and disabled children from a vulnerable state of being hurt and broken and provide comprehensive care until they become independent and thriving.

I am Haitian American and I was deeply touched by people’s generosity. At the gala one person purchased a Peyton Manning-signed jersey for $1,500 dollars. Another purchased a Ty Lawson-signed jersey for $2,500. At a high school teacher’s salary, I can’t afford to make these types of donations, but nonetheless, I was left in awe at how kind and generous some people are.

If you would like to donate to HaitiChildren, please visit their website. Thank you!
