Follow Me to Haiti is committed to ensuring 100% of all donations go to supporting the children, families and Haitian communities most in need, with zero admin or overhead. Follow Me to Haiti provides sustained support to Haiti. Follow Me to Haiti was founded on the premise that every penny of every dollar goes to supporting those most in need.
John D. Rockefeller once said, “Charity is injurious unless it helps the recipient to become independent of it.” I’ve been struggling to articulate this concept — the best way to help Haiti is to help Haitians free themselves from the foreign aid economy they have become dependent upon for survival. One small way to start the process is to change the way we give.
Follow Me to Haiti actively supports the education of Haiti’s children. We believe the future of Haiti lies firmly in the hands of today’s children. Giving children the tools and the knowledge they need will advance the profile of their country globally.

We have recently shipped 25 refurbished laptop computers to Haiti in our continuing effort support education. A special thank you to Denny Baumann and his group from Virginia for providing a large percentage of these computers. The new computer lab that these computers will support are going to serve communities with a thirst for knowledge and a growing need to provide their children with tools for success in a struggling country where opportunity is limited and education is critical.

The children of Haiti need your old, yet functioning laptops. We are working on our next computer lab and are three computers short of our goal. Please let us know if you are willing to donate a used (or even new) laptop. It does not have to be fancy, but Internet connectivity is a plus. Thank you for your consideration. Read More →
