Taglines

These short, memorable descriptions have become identified with a product:

  • Just Do It! (Nike, 1988)
  • What Happens Here, Stays Here (Las Vegas, 2002)
  • Snap! Crackle! Pop! (Kellogg’s Rice Krispies, 1932)
  • Can You Hear Me Now? (Verizon, 2002)

Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. This is quoted so often it has become a tagline for the nation. It’s the short, memorable description that has become identified with a product. Help us tell another story:

Haiti is a land of hope.  After attending the primary school in Bassin Caiman, Ronald attended higher learning in Cayes, and upon graduation returned to teach back in his hometown.  Haiti H2O helped build the school and sponsor the teachers during environmental disasters. Marie leads a team of four women who bake bread to sell in the community in an oven sponsored by Haiti H2O. The oven has been operational for over 10 years under Haitian management. Jean sends her son to school with money they earn through the Haiti H2O Goat Project.

Haiti H2O works in a nation of hope. You just have to look past the tagline to see a people of Hope, seeking and seizing Opportunities. Right now we need you to help this reality stay a reality.

The Pittsburgh Marathon/Half/Relay & 5K 
The Pittsburgh Marathon/Half/Relay & 5K is our biggest fundraiser. This year, we are focusing on recruiting relay teams from local churches. I am looking for team captains who will help me recruit and run for Haiti H2O. Would you consider leading a relay team for your church? Do you know someone else who would enjoy this opportunity?

The relay teams are made up of five participants who will run or walk distances between 3.8 to 6.5 miles.  The fundraising minimum commitment is $150 per person, for a team total of $750.
