Have you got your pennies ready? Break open that piggy bank and take it to piggyink.com to purchase this first edition of The Gravy Queen! 100% of the proceeds from this edition will go to Foyer de Sion, an orphanage in Haiti that's breaking the cycle of poverty and illiteracy there. 50% of the children in Haiti die before they reach the age of 5.
80% of the nation is unemployed, leaving parents helpless to take care of their children. There are over 100,000 children who live on the streets-- abandoned or orphaned. Many of them become prostitutes and slaves. Foyer de Sion currently has 300 children in its care. And from donations and adoption monies, they have built schools and equipped them, so the children of Haiti can have a free education. The orphanage is also setting up healthcare facilities in remote villiages where no other care is available. In addition to this, Foyer de Sion hosts job-skill classes-- sewing, art, and many other things that can help families to bring in an income. This gives the children a great hope that things will change in Haiti. With a proper education and training, there will be less orphans.
Your purchase of the first edition of this book will go a long way in helping them. We will donate everything you can give to their cause. And there are many things you can do to help them. Visit foyerdesion.org and sionfonds.org to see what else you can do. As I said, there are many things needed, and much of it is free. Volunteers are also needed -- and that's a life-changing experience.
Experience the joy of helping with us! Visit piggyink.com today.
