Raising money for schools in Haiti.
This will be my second year of jumping in the cold cold waters of Fish Lake to raise money for Haiti. Two schools have already been built and there's more to come.
Haiti is special to me and my family. Later this year, we will welcome two special grandchildren to the familly. My daughter Anne and her husband Brian, along with Ella, Jack, Anders, and Isaac have plans to adopt two children from Haiti in 2013.
The dunk has raised over $75000 playing a integral part in the completion of two schools in Haiti. Several hundred kids are now getting an education they would otherwise not be receiving.
The whole idea for the Rotary Partnership for Haiti is that once health and life is established through the construction of clean drinking water you need opportunity. That opportunity is provided by the establishment of sustainable schools that will educate and provide opportunity for thousands of children over the years to come.
I hope you can support me in this very Minnesotan of activities to help provide health and opportunity to those in Haiti who need it most.
