We can make a difference.

We can make a difference, one little bit at a time. Please take a read at this awesome opportunity to help raise funds for immediate relief in Haiti. Boots on the ground relief, feeding children, offering shelter, and starting to rebuild. Now.

I've had the opportunity to once again partner up with Tanya Zaleski Photocreations and Elena from JustMe Prints, to  help raise money for HAITI RELIEF. 

The devastation left in the path of Hurricane Matthew, is heartbreaking, we must keep these words close to our hearts as we see devastation in our world, we may not be able to do everything, but we can do something...

"I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something.​And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do."— Edward Everett Hale



Keep reading to hear Tanya's words and her vision for this incredible project:

In 2013, when a typhoon devastated the Philippines, my heart broke. But knowing individuals on the ground, already mobilized to make things happen, I was propelled to do something concrete. I collaborated with my friends over at LostBumblebeeGraphics and JustMEprints to launch what would be a successful fundraising campaign.  Now here we are again. Haiti needs our help.


Haiti needs immediate assistance. And we know people on the ground ready to make real things happen now. A team has already been mobilized and is waiting on resources to rebuild homes, remedy pending starvation, and consequently respond to the cholera epidemic. 15,000 people are without shelter, and even more face a lack of food. We need to act today.

We've all been frustrated with reports of funds mismanaged after Haiti's last natural disaster. But this frustration is not a reason to throw our hands up and do nothing. It is a reason to become wiser with our generosity. I've long believed that the most effective way to help in times of crisis is to empower legitimate indigenous labourers, both using resources on hand as well as stimulating the local economy.
