Earthquake Devastates St. Joseph Home in Port au Prince

Broken Wings is the Canadian fundraising organization whose primary mission is to support the vision and ministry of the St. Joseph Family in Haiti, which includes the St. Joseph’s Home for Boys in Port-au Prince, Wings of Hope in Fermathe, and Trinity House in Jacmel.

Orphans caring for orphans: a beautiful story

St. Joseph’s Home for Boys was Michael Geilenfeld’s dream that became a reality in 1985, bringing boys off the streets of Port-au-Prince to provide them with a Christian home and family.

When French missionaries announced they were leaving Haiti and needed to find care for the disabled children under their supervision, Michael took some of the older boys from St. Joseph's to choose a child to bring home and care for. But the boys surprised Michael when they chose to adopt all the children. Wings of Hope had become a thriving home for disabled children, recently rebuilt and expanded to include a day school for disabled community children and lovely guest facilities.

For more on the St. Joseph's family of homes for children, visit the Broken Wings website.

basket of nova scotian baking by seaside chef leah moon

You'll love this winter package of true bluenose treats -- like an old school bake sale in a box. The fresh-baked goodness includes:

Six (6) juice tin loaves of oatmeal brown bread, perfect with soups, stew or baked beans (I don't know what Leah puts in those tin loaves but it's addictive -- moist and tasty with a hint of molasses. The kind of bread you wouldn't dare toast. You eat it fresh, slathered with butter. ~ Kate)

One dozen (12) Nova Scotian oatcakes, a staple in Leah's house (choose to add chocolate, if you like)

One dozen (12) blueberry muffins made with local blueberries

One dozen (12) homemade maple marshmallows (far beyond the average marshmallow)

Everything freezes well except the marshmallows, and will be baked the day of one-day shipping anywhere in North America. 

Leah Moon is a chef who, after a few years in the restaurant industry and ten years of culinary experience in private yachting, has settled at home in Nova Scotia to chase and giggle with her two young girls. She is on the cusp of fun and exciting things at her soon-to-come food blog.

All proceeds from items sold on the To Haiti with Love auction go directly to the St. Joseph's Family in Haiti. To make a bid, simply leave a comment with the amount of your bid and your email address. The auction will wrap up on February 8, 2010, and winners will be contacted right away to arrange payment and shipping. Good luck!
