Larry and Dan are headed to CES on Monday along with Judie, Kevin and Francis. We, however, are going as part of a Scottevest No Baggage Challenge for Charity. In this Gear Chat we’ll discuss how this came about. This IS a No Baggage Challenge for Charity, and donations will be going to the Haiti Plunge.
As part of the Challenge, Scott Jordan, founder and CEO of Scottevest will be making a donation, and we’d like to invite you all to step in and help as well. All the money raised will support The Haiti Plunge and help build a road and “develop a permanent clinic that provides ongoing preventive care, curative care, and health promotional services for the under-served people of 9 mountain villages and the Caberet region of Haiti — the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.”
The Haiti Plunge does what it does because…
With minimal, often substandard, and frequently unavailable health care, the people of the Caberet and surrounding region of Haiti suffer from lower life expectancy and high maternal, fetal, and infant mortality rates. Childhood infection rates are among the highest in the world, and adults often suffer or die from easily treatable diseases and conditions.
Build the Road to Health To date, the Church Outreach To Youth (COTY) program has purchased the land, drafted architectural and engineering plans, outlined clinical programs, and identified local staff for a permanent clinic in Galgal, Haiti.
To make the clinic a reality, we must build a viable road for construction vehicles and trucks that carry medical equipment, supplies, and personnel.
You can personally donate HERE. When you do please indicate that you are donating as part of the “Scottevest No Baggage Challenge for Charity, CES/Gear Diary Edition”.
Our thanks to Scott and Scottevest!
