i'mME




















If you've been around here for any length of time, you know my heart beats for the orphan. James 1:27 clearly commands us to look after the least of these. So when I found out about imME and all that they're doing in Haiti, I eagerly jumped on board.

ImME is an organization based on two principles of orphan care and orphan prevention in Haiti.

Orphan Care for them comes in the shape of orphan homes. They house orphans and offer them the necessary needs of these children as well as love that might not otherwise receive. I have always loved the idea of homes like these. I've been to orphanages. I know their realities, and I love the idea of an alternate to that.

Orphan Prevention looks like a few different things. ImME is unique in their program because they're going one step further with orphan care. They are trying to prevent these children from becoming orphans. They have after school programs that help keep these kids in school. They don't fall by the waist side and get the care and attention and help they need with their schoolwork. I love this.

With all this, I knew I wanted to get involved. So I became a Community Champion. And I'm finally kicking off my BeYOU campaign. I am trying to raise $500 for ImME by the end of the semester. That's 44 days. I want to be a voice for these children. I want to support them and spur them on. Will you help me? Whether it's through a social media shoutout or by financially supporting, I would love you forever.

Please look at imME and see all that they're doing for the orphan in Haiti.
