Wow everyone! We are really close to our goal! Praise the Lord- and thanks to everyone in this community for supporting this project so enthusiastically!
In an effort towards full disclosure, I wanted to let everyone know that if we do exceed our goal, and that Kalipso’s education and needs are provided for, any extra money will go directly to benefit the orphanage being built by Pastor Jehu Metullis.
Here is more information about that project- NDI is partnering with Pastor Jehu Metellus to build a chilren’s home for boys and girls who are abandoned to live on the streets in and around Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Currently, he cares for 23 boys, but he would like to expand this to 200 boys and girls. The cost of this building is $400,000 or $74 per square foot. Here’s the great news: the first $100,000 has been raised and sent. Of the remaining balance, only $150,000 needs to be raised because every dollar given will be matched! $150,000 at 25 dollars a cake is 6,000 cakes! Let’s get busy!
