Volunteer in Haiti!As part of the "Do" Category, I can't even begin to communicate the life-changing experience that is volunteering in Haiti.
Just because the news cycle has moved on to other stories doesn't mean that the need for help in Haiti has disappeared.
There are many ways to get involved and every bit helps, but when you're there on the ground, experiencing it first hand and taking in the warmth and generosity of the people, you receive much more than you could ever hope to give them in return.
If you would like to find out more, I would suggest taking a look at the nonprofit,
WE HEAR YOUR VOICE (www.wehearyourvoice.org), with whom I made three separate trips in the last two years, and can't wait to get back down there again soon.
And while you're there, make sure to try Prestige Beer, Barbancourt Rum and the fresh mangoes... But you won't have to go far to find one as someone will offer you one (no charge) because that's just what they do.
If you look around Haiti, there isn't much hope, but when you look inside the Haitian people, there's hope, and much to learn.
