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.

the shutter sisters flash bulb necklace

Affectionately born out of collaboration between Shutter Sisters’ founder Tracey Clark and Jill Redman, founder of Blue Poppy Jewelry, the exclusive Shutter Sisters Flash Bulb necklace is a symbol of our creative sisterhood. The design was inspired by the flash of a vintage camera. A hint of bilberry botanical helped to bring the tiny bulb its color. Beyond that, the circular shape of the pendant, which hangs on a delicate 18 inch silver chain also honors the feminine and mindfully represents our infinite connection to one another.

Shutter Sisters is a collaborative photo blog and thriving community that welcomes and celebrates all women with a passion for photography.

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!
