The End of 2023!
We will take a look back at 2023 during the first few weeks in January, but I will give you a quick preview...It was not a good for Haiti and it was another difficult year for All Things New. With that said, I want to make sure we highlight this in the beginning of the blog:
It's not exactly a campaign, but December 31 is by far the largest giving day of the year for nonprofits (considerably higher than Giving Tuesday) and the second highest giving day is, you probably guessed it, December 30. With that being true, we wanted to make sure to give everyone ample opportunity to give to All Things New at the end of 2023.
With the year coming to an end, I wanted to say thank you to everyone who is still reading this email/blog!
It has been a hard year. We have not taken a team down to Haiti because of safety reasons for almost 5 years now, and I have not really been back down for a couple of years either.
Our kids are still going to school and are being very well taken care of, but the state of their country is not lost on them. Think about the lack of hope and the struggle they must face when thinking about their future.
Our supporters are constantly reminded about how difficult Haiti is, how things are not getting better, and how slow changes will have to happen when they do. It is easier to give and support a ministry when things are going well and there are tangible goals and accomplishments being met.
It is hard when Haiti is like it is and there is little hope for near and certain change. I am blown away by your support and your commitment to our kids and to this ministry. We couldn't operate and care for our kids without you, and as hard as it has been you continue to support and pray for us.
Thank you for not turning your back on our kids and this ministry when they need you the most. It means more than you will ever know.
