My dear friend & sister-in-christ, Wendy Jules is the event planner for Community2Community.  She is someone who's heart is truly in the right place & this is not one of those organizations that say they are helping the Haitian people but you don't see any evidence of it. Definitely not the case here! Check the website, they have been working diligently since the Earthquake hit our beloved homeland January 12th, 2010 @ 4:53PM. People lost their lives, their sense of hope & community. And that's where C2C comes in. Community2Community's focus is to help build self-sufficient communities!
How awesome is that?
