Haitian Children Reach Out to Japan

Compassion can be summed up in two words: Geoffrey and Joe. When these two Haitian boys saw the devastation of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan on an aid worker’s handheld portable TV, they weren’t only moved to tears.

The boys have been living in tents ever since the earthquake in Port-au-Prince destroyed their homes last year. But even though they have nothing of their own, they’ve started collecting plastic scraps and weaving them into bracelets to raise funds to help Japanese survivors. The bracelets bear the words Haiti and Japan.

The bracelets have been selling for $10 each, and so far, the boys have earned more than $200 for a relief fund to help survivors of the Japanese quake and tsunami.
