CHECK OUT MY FOLLOW FOREVER
Hi! I’m Rae.
You might know me on tumblr as that chick who went to Haiti with H2H/Random Acts and blogged about it a lot (or the one who wrote that one really long fanfic with the ugly sweaters, or took that dumb pic with Misha in Haiti). If you follow me, you might also know me as a teacher at a nonprofit learning center, and the IT and Social Media person for a nonprofit in Jacmel, Haiti called the Art Creation Foundation for Children. Or maybe you don’t know me at all! Hello to you, tumblr.
The Art Creation Foundation for Children (ACFFC) is a grassroots, tiny little charity with a tiny little budget that is doing huge things. And by huge I mean “holy sh*t, how do you do that on the budget that you do that, this is amazing.” We’ve got over 100 kids, and they’re all fed three meals a day, get their school tuition + uniforms paid for, medical care, and art instruction as a means to develop autonomy. Their mosaic artwork is featured all over the walls of their city, and their work has been instrumental in making Jacmel a cultural site.
The problem is that we need help on the ground. The dream is real and the goal is possible: we can help these kids accomplish economic self-sustainability and continue to operate a program that makes a real difference. But to do this, we need staff. Our current stretched and small budget doesn’t have the capacity to hire new people, but we desperately need support or the program will flounder. A week or two isn’t going to do it; we need people who can stay at least 6 months to help develop a sustainable curriculum, identify programming challenges and help solve them, and — perhaps most importantly, just interact with kids, and give ‘em some extra love and attention. We need someone who can do all this without the organization paying for it, because the money just isn’t there.
This is where you and I come in.
I am ready and willing to help in any way I can, but I need your help. The trip, all expenses totaled, will cost around $5,000. I’m saving up to defray the cost, but I can’t do it by myself. We’re gonna need tumblr/social media help in a huge way to make this happen.
Here’s how to help:
- Donate here! Do it! Do the thing! All donations are appreciated, big or small. Anything you can contribute will make a difference.
- If you want, you can get in on a raffle for Haiti stuff signed by Misha by donating. Every $10 you donate will get you 1 entry into the raffle. Make sure you fill out the raffle form!
- Commission me for fanfiction. I’ll write anything (within reason) for any of the fandoms I’m familiar with. Contact me on tumblr if you’re interested!
- Buy a custom necklace! They’re $18 +shipping and the message can say whatever you want. Contact me if interested!
- Spread the word! Tell your followers, tell your friends, tell everyone you know. There is power in word of mouth.
Please ask me questions! If I don’t know the answers, I will find them for you. You can contact me on tumblr or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let’s be the change, Tumblr. Let’s make this happen.
oh gosh okay i’ll start by saying i’m a super shallow person and that means looks are kinda important to me when it comes to dating (not normally though) :/
anyway i’m waaay more picky with boys than girls so if we’re talking about a boyfriend, i like very tall boys with light eyes and a nice smile ;;u;;
if we’re talking about girlfriends, i like girls with nice smiles and legs!!
and i’d also want my ideal bf/gf to be cuddly and passionate about stuff and they should love travelling and seeing new places!! oh and i don’t like super jealous people so yeah
and about the perfect date, i don’t really know?? i guess i’d be more than okay with going out for dinner and then going to the movies or on a walk?? but seriously i don’t mind that much ;;u;;
