Where have I been…?
Boy… where HAVE I been. So my posts have been pretty sporadic lately. I’ve been doing a lot of things. Unfortunately, sewing has not really been one of them.
First things first, work was REALLY busy. The end of the year at school is busy. And you can say you understand, but unless you’ve actually worked in the school setting in some capacity, there’d really be no way for you to know. Long story short, I (and everyone at school) have really worked to earn our summer break. And man, will I need it.
However, I HAVE been working on some really great, God-honoring projects. Enter: Project Piti Pami. The brainchild of one of my best friends (and bridesmaids at my wedding). And let me tell you, I am honored to be a part of the ground work for this beautiful non-profit.
To give you an idea of what this organization is about here is a short snippet of our story straight from our Facebook page:
“Project Piti Pami (or 3P for short) is a US-based nonprofit organization with plans to promote sustainable healthcare and wellness for the people of Haiti through community health education and training.
Our name was inspired by Matthew 25:40, which reads “… whatever you did for the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” In Creole (the primary language of Haitian people), “least of these” can be translated roughly to “piti pami”. As our mission is quite literally to serve the less fortunate, we found the name to be a perfect fit.
3P was brought to life through Executive Director Jordan Place’s involvement with the Haiti Medical Project during a series of short-term mission trips. After volunteering in one of HMP’s mobile medical clinics and speaking with the physicians who ran them, she learned of the significant challenges they faced in providing care to their patients – all of which stem primarily from lack of resources.
3P plans to partner with HMP to help meet these needs by 1) promoting preventative health and medical education initiatives in Haiti, 2) advocating for the HMP and fostering support for their projects, and 3) providing service that empowers the people of Haiti to make positive, lasting change in their own communities.”
I’ve been selected as the public relations director. So you’ll see me over on that page quite a bit. Hint: come check it out!
If you feel called to give, you totally can! We are a 501(c)3 pending organization – which means that any monetary donation you give is tax exempt. Woot!
If you feel called to pray, we need prayers too.
If you feel called to volunteer in some capacity, get a hold of me and I can put you in touch with the right people 🙂
Just thought you all may want to follow along with my adventures. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to update you on some other adventures I’ve started too!
