We have an opportunity we’d like for you to consider personally and to also bring up in your small groups or circles of friends.

There is a current need in Haiti for durable, waterproof tents, as the rainy season has begun and the majority of people are living under flimsy tarps after the destruction of the earthquake.

We’d like you to consider purchasing a waterproof tent, or donating a tent that you have but don’t use, to be sent to Haiti.

We’d also like you to bring this opportunity to your small groups, family, and friends. It would be a great opportunity for the group to come together and serve in a very practical way!

Here is the process broken down. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3:
1) Go to the store.
2) Purchase a tent.
3) Drop it off at our local drop-off for Tents for Haiti. The drop-off for Wilmington is at Port City Java’s Main Office on Market Street (2101 Market St, Wilmington, NC 28403), and it is open Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm.

That’s it!

Some of you may know that durable, waterproof tents – especially tents that fit more than two people (4-6 or more would be preferable) can be pricey. But think about it… if you have a group of 10 people and each person donates $10, you have $100 with which you can purchase a tent.

Here are some tents and prices and where you can purchase them:

The main website for collecting tents for Haiti is aHomeinHaiti.org . Visit the site to find tent options you can purchase online, where to send them (all tents purchased on-line are to be sent to Courageous Church in Atlanta, GA), or to donate money towards purchasing tents. This website may especially interest those of you who are not in Wilmington but would like to donate! A suggestion for you might be to have one person collect money from the group and then purchase the tent on-line or make a donation on-line with the group’s money.
*If you are going to collect money with your group and purchase a tent on-line, I recommend that you go to this site to choose a tent as it also gives you the Courageous Church address where the tent will need to be sent.

If you have any questions, feel free to comment! Thank you so much for considering ways to help relieve Haitians during this difficult time, especially when it can be so simple, and so practical.
