This project was made to raise money for an orphanage for handicapped and disabled children in Haiti. We had previously worked with this orphanage after the hurricane in 2011, helping then build a new wing more accessible to the children with motor disabilities. Unfortunately this wing was destroyed due to a fire last summer and our goal was to raise money to help them rebuild (thankfully no children were gravely hurt during the fire).
5 clubs from the 1730 district joined forces to raise money in a common effort. Our district representative coordinated this project between the clubs which promoted both local commerce and a worthy cause abroad. The essence of the project was to buy chocolate creations in bulk as to repackage them and sell them for the Christmas season. Each club chose a local chocolate and confectionery company to promote. We sold various sized boxes and different kinds of chocolates for over a month at all of our events, visiting Rotary clubs, companies, christmas markets, forums and conventions. We promoted Rotaract, the local chocolate and confectionery companies and the ply of the Hatian orphange at each of these events. With each box sold with the Rotaract logo on them we communicated our effort to help the community.
