Tonight I attended the Save Haiti's Children's Benefit Concert at All Saints Episcopal Church. I saw the event advertised in the Staten Island Advance and thought this would be a great way to show my support for the people in Haiti who have been devastated by the aftermaths of the earthquake. With general admission being a tax-deductible donation, my family and I enjoyed a night full of love songs, Broadway and pop music, poetry, and readings by some of New York's extremely talented performers that included Maria DeSantis, Miss America's Outstanding Teen 2007, and Alexandra Mazzucchelli, Miss New York's Outstanding Teen 2008. All proceeds were distributed to God's Littlest Angels and Partner's in Health.
God's Littlest Angels is a non-profit organization founded on Christmas Day 1994. Its mission is to save the lives of Haitian infants who are in need of intensive nursing care and nutritional support. There are two houses in Haiti: the main house for babies up to two years old and the toddler house for children up to age seven. For more information on how you can help this Haitian baby ministry please visit http://www.glahaiti.org/.
Partners in Health was founded in 1987 to deliver health care to the village of Cange, Haiti. The mission of this non-profit organization is to provide a preferential option for the poor in health care focusing on patient care, program administration, drug procurement, technical assistance, and fundraising. Besides Haiti, Partners in Health is active in Peru, Lesotho, Malawi, Russia, Rwanda, Mexico, Guatemala, and parts of the United States.
