Buy coffee, help build a school in Haiti

January 22, 2014

coffeeThe 11th graders at Dallas International School is hosting a great fundraiser – web-ordered coffee and t-shirts – to raise money so they can travel to Haiti and build a school. Damn, that’s smart.

Buy some coffee or a shirt at, please.  (Or, donate at Spread the word a little. Let’s all get buzzed and do some solid good.

A little commentary

One of the big problems with charity is that it’s so far removed from us. If I donate to a cause, I know that someone, somewhere, will get the money I put in, and do….something with it. Probably.  One kind of gets a “well, what’s the point?” feeling, more often than not.

But with this charity, I personally am involved with the school. I will get updates about the kids going on the trip, photos of the build. I’ll get to hear about actual lives changed for the better. That’s a rare thing, for the cost of some coffee. So, I’m in.

This project is a joint venture between DIS and Some of the students will fly down during spring break to help build the school and spend time in the community.
