The parents of a sixth grader at the school where my husband teaches runs an orphanage in Haiti. The school is having a donation drive to assist this orphanage. The parents of the child are there now, helping people left and right.
We haven't donated a thing yet. We haven't gotten around to navigating all the charities and researching their reputations. But this one goes direct. I can't imagine a charity more direct than a physical orphanage.
I'm guessing the family is a member of a wealthy, church-affiliated philanthropist/missionary group who are dedicated to their mission there.
If anyone wants the info to donate, I'll post it when I get it.
