Great Things Happen

It’s just under a week away from the dinner on October 11th at the Caboto club and I was really nervous to see how many ticket were sold and expected people at the door. Like before one week I felt there was going to be too many people the next not enough and then back and forth. Well great news we’ve sold around 75 tickets and are expecting anywhere from 25-30 people at the door, that’s not including anyone who’s saw/heard the news paper ads, TV ads, and radio ads. It looks like this event is going to be an amazing turn out and success.

More great news Emily and the kids have moved into a new house! Thanks Bridge 2 Haiti who has paid rent on the house for a year.

“Our BEAUTIFUL new home .. Thank you Bridge2Haiti– Sarah Griffith for sponsoring this place for us. We can’t express enough our appreciation. <3″

The new name for the house is “Maison Ke Kontan” -Happy Heart House

Maison Ke Kontan

There’s only 6 more days to the dinner and the good news just keeps coming in! People are slowly donating more items for the raffles, I just have to pick up a few more supplies for the centre pieces and people who can’t make it out are buying tickets anyway (^_^). Like I said before it looks like this dinner is going to be a success but it’s still going to be a lot of work.

Thank you to everyone who has taken the time out of their days and nights to help me out. Whether you made phone calls, went door to door, blew up Facebook with advertising about the event, filmed every moment of my progress (Thanks Jules) or just wrote and article or told a friend; thank you every one who has helped, it has made a huge difference.

As the days are counting down to the event I get more anxious to find out how much I can give to Maison Ke Kontan especially now that I have an estimated date of departure which is late November .

Once again can’t tell every one enough how thankful I am for all the support.

Special Thanks to Sarah Griffith & Bridge 2 Haiti.
