Holes http://wp.me/s3dThk-holes

I can’t sleep…so what else is new? Something is wrong with me lately, I’m totally off balance I’m crying again for no particular reason and in the most ridiculous places…again. I am on edge and I am getting mad and I am trying to convince myself that I don’t know why that is but I do know why and that makes it all the much harder to deal with.

Sometimes I wonder if my life would have been…

Let It Go

Let it go, those are words that I have struggled with most of my life. I have never been good at letting things go.  I tend toward being a bit obsessive about everything and I also get very wrapped up in bad things when they happen.  I can unfortunately be a bit of a fatalist when things start to go amiss.  In the last few years I have gotten much better but I have a long way to go.  This last…

Why Haiti?

I have so much to tell from the last trip…but the best way to explain why Haiti..here you go…

Never merely exist…

(Ramble warning…I’m still trying to get my thought together this week and that is evident in this post.  But I had to get some of it out, thanks for humoring me :) )

When we returned from Haiti in June the first thing on my mind was how and when do I get back there.  Our last trip was a volunteer effort.  We spent the majority of our time at the various organizations and orphanages that the…

We find ourselves talking a lot now about the things we wish we could do with our…

In just two weeks I am headed back to Haiti.  I never imagined that after the Random Acts trip just this past summer I would get s chance to return so soon!

But it’s my birthday and I can’t think of a better place to be in all the world!

We will be heading back to see the kids at the Art Creation Foundation for Children while we are there.  The best birthday present ever would to be able to return with much needed support for the ACFFC…so maybe you would like to help out. And in return we have a little present for you…come check it out!

Hey Tumblr! I would like to officially announce that I’M GOING BACK TO HAITI!

I’ll be there from February 8th to the 16th. It’s more of a vacation than a volunteer trip this time around, and I’m not going with any official organizations, but we are definitely going to visit the Jacmel Children’s Center and Art Creation Foundation for Children!

Since we’ll be there, we figured it would be a great opportunity to bring supplies for the kids and youth in Jacmel. This is where you, dear Tumblr, can help us out!

We inquired with the JCC on what they need and have put together an Amazon wish list for them. Purchasing items from this list will send them to my house, and we will bring them with us on our trip. There are a variety of items of all different prices; every little bit helps! Please make sure the items ship with at least a few days before Feb 8th so we have time to pack them!

We also inquired with the ACFFC on what they need. We were told that art supplies and flip-flops are always needed, but what they need most right now is money! The ACFFC runs on donations, and when donations run low, the organization struggles. We’ve put together a Crowdrise campaign to help ease their financial burden so they can focus on the incredible work they’re doing. Even a little bit will make a difference! Also, for every donation of $20 or more, we’re sending out beautiful papier-mache birds made by students of the ACFFC. Contact me if you’ve donated so I can send you yours (:

I can’t stress enough how much good even the smallest donation will do. There’s power in numbers, my friends; if 10 people donate a six pack of toothbrushes, we go to Haiti with 60 toothbrushes for kids. If 10 people donate $10, the ACFFC is $100 better equipped to keep changing lives. It adds up!

Please spread the word, and contact me via tumblr or at raestevenson1@gmail.com if you have any new or gently used items you’d like to donate. Thanks in advance for all your support!

Boxes of donations for the JCC have already started coming in. You guys are friggin incredible.
