This year, FLM-Haiti is launching: 1,000 HEARTS FOR HAITI.  Be one of 1,000 HEARTS willing to contribute at least $100. If we get 1,000 HEARTS, we raise $100,000 to continue to provide literacy training, education, and health care to those who need it the most.

Each $100 donor will be entered into a raffle to win a vacation package to Haiti for two.  The vacation package is worth $2,000. If you are a service organization, or classroom, or Bible study that participates as a HEART, if you win the raffle, FLM-Haiti will donate $2,000 to your organization, church, or school.

Here’s how to give: Donate through our website, or write a check to FLM-Haiti and mail to: 1064 Premier Street, Pa., 15201 (in the memo line, please note: in support of the 1,000 HEARTS FOR HAITI.)

Of course, you can pay the $100 in one lump sum, but beginning in October 2017, FLM-Haiti will also designate three chances to give. (Payments can be made in increments of $33.33):

  • November 14, 2017
  • January 14, 2018
  • February 14. 2018

It is our goal to end the campaign on Valentine’s Day, national hearts day, with a 1,000 HEARTS FOR HAITI.
