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.

Endless thanks to our hosts at Squarespace, who not only make the most robust and most elegant blogging platform on the planet, but who are also as generous as they are hip.

Squarespace is divine. Not only does this platform allow me to achieve exactly the kind of websites I envision aesthetically, but it gives me the tools to make those websites and communities highly compelling and functional.

Every blog I've founded or contribute to is built on the Squarespace platform -- Glow in the Woods, Shutter Sisters, my author site, my book site, the Haiti auction site and my personal blog, sweet | salty. Anyone who expresses an interest in blogging gets tackled to the ground with my Squarespace enthusiasm. I can't recommend it enough. ~ Kate Inglis

Oh maaan, you guys will love Squarespace. I'd only ever used the freebie blogging platforms before this auction and now I'm going to be too spoiled to go back. If I had any money at all I'd be bidding on this with a vengeance.
