We’re going to Haiti! Please come along

Washing with clean, safe water in HaitiNext week Passports With Purpose founder Beth Whitman and board member Mara Gorman will be flying to Haiti to see firsthand how the money  raised in our 2012 fundraiser is helping the community of Mirebelais, Haiti. We’ll be privileged to attend the inauguration of one of the wells and will also meet with people whose lives will be affected by access to clean water and see the work that Water.org and the community are doing together.

As I’m sure you can imagine, we’re thrilled beyond measure to once again have this kind of opportunity and are very grateful to Expedia for paying for our airfare and lodging and to Water.org for coordinating this visit.

So many different travel bloggers have helped to bring us to this moment. For the past five years a miraculous online community has come together and directed their energies toward a single goal. For that reason we see this as a chance to be your eyes and ears and voices. We are going to observe and listen and ask questions, and we’d like to ask you to share in this process. What would you most like to learn about the community in Haiti? What questions would you like answered? What information can we bring back for you to share with your friends and readers who helped to raise $112,000?

Please share your questions and thoughts about the Water.org project in Mirebelais, Haiti either in the comments below, on the Passports With Purpose Facebook page, or on Twitter using the hashtag #PWPHaiti.

We’re not sure how much access we’ll have to social media or the Internet while we are in Haiti, but when we have the opportunity will be sharing photos and status updates. And when we get back, we’ll be sure to share our story of the people of Mirebelais. We hope you’ll join us.
