Online Shopping with Amazon

Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your purchases to Helping Hugs if made through their Smile.Amazon site.  There is no cost to the purchaser and the pricing, shipping and services are identical in both sites.  You can use your same Amazon account or create a new one if your are a first time user.  The easiest way to get started is to use the following link "Go Shopping" which will take you to the correct sign-in page and set Helping Hugs, Inc. as your charity of choice.You can also use the Brown Button on the Home Page near the top which reads "Donate via AmazonSmile".  You may want to bookmark the page to save time in the future.  Please remember that Amazon will only donate when you order through their website.  We recently received a check from Amazon for $22.19 representing purchases during the 4th quarter of 2016.  Help us increase the amount of these checks.  Thank you for supporting Helping Hugs and the people of Haiti.      

Student Education Drive - June 15 to August 15th

The children of Haiti need your help.  St. Joseph Church operates 3 schools in the Cotes-de-Fer area of Haiti.  Providing an education for the children is one of the ways we can improve the future of Haiti.  Last year you provided enough funds to support over 220 students.  Our goal this year is to support at least 250 students.  Through your generosity, we have exceeded that goal.  Last year 70% - 80% of the students from these schools passed the national exam as compared to only 30% for all students in Haiti.  As you can see, your support is making a difference.  We hope that you will continue your support of these children.  For those who may not have had an opportunity to donate to our education drive, we could still use funds for our project to bring technology into the schools.  Please visit our donation page now.  Any amount would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you for helping us reach our goal.
