Special Message from PST Swimmer Eden Smith

Dear PST Family,

 

I hope you all are staying healthy and safe. My name is Eden Smith and I’ve been in the Platinum group since January of 2019. Since 2017, I’ve been going to the mountain village of Terre Froide, Haiti, every summer and helping out with the Terre Froide Community School. This school was built by Haiti Hands On, an organization that partners with rural Haitian communities to create educational opportunities. Almost all expenses are coming out of pocket by the organizers, and there are still many more that need to be covered.  The transportation is quite difficult, so the staff requires a lot of money for travel. Money for snacks, materials, and other items that are usually taken for granted in our lives are always needed as well. With the resources Haiti: Hands On has accumulated so far, 125 more children are getting an education. With your donation, they can change even more lives! Every dollar counts. Thank you!

Sincerely,

Eden Smith
