Photo of St. Joseph’s Home for Boys: Post Earthquake 2009.

I wrote you all yesterday — telling you of our latest fundraising effort for Haiti. I included a picture in that post of our friends who survived the earthquake. Well, after seeing the picture of what happened to their 7 story building … I have no idea how they survived …

… but I am SO very thankful they did.

If you would like to help them rebuild and/or learn of the wonderful things that have happened within those walls, please visit

To all the St Joseph’s family … we love you so very much. And we are so very thankful that you are alive and well. Help is on the way.



UPDATE: Sadly, I just learned that an American guest who was staying at the St Josephs Home for Boys (pictured above) was killed during the quake. I am very sorry to report this and will update as I can.
