This January, we are excited to partner with Hope for Haiti to provide education to children in southern Haiti. Every 10 check-ins at Gracie Fernandina will provide a day of education to a classroom of 30 children. I always say, “I can teach you jiu-jitsu, but it’s more important to me that I teach you to be good people.”
In solidarity with the Haitian people, Hope for Haiti started the Haitian Solidarity Campaign. The campaign will help improve education, healthcare, infrastructure, access to clean drinking water, and economic opportunity for more than 300,000 Haitian children, parents and grandparents. The campaign seeks to honor and support those impacted by the 2010 Haiti earthquake, Hurricane Matthew, and the most recent wave of political and civil unrest.
If you want to learn more about Hope for Haiti, you can check them out at hopeforhaiti.com. The hashtag this month is #hopeforhaiti. Head to the closest martial arts academy near you to start helping!
Thanks for checking in this month to help Haiti build their future through education!
