in changing lives and creating hope
It is through the support of our passionate donors, visitors, sponsors, and prayer warriors that we have been able to follow God's lead to make needed changes for our children and reunify whole families. Our work is certainly not done!
Here are some ways you can participate in changing lives and creating hope in Haiti:
Sponsor a Child:
Sponsors will ensure that a child has adequate support to remain safely within their families while attending our quality school tuition-free. Starting this school year, there is an opportunity to sponsor any child attending Imagine School to ensure that we can continue to support their tuition-free education and life with their families!
Providing for a child consistently through sponsorship increases the positive long-term impact on a child, their family, and their community. It also helps a child feel chosen and loved when they know someone is investing in them and rooting for their success. It is not uncommon for Imagine kiddos to pray daily for their valued sponsor!
Consider changing a life by signing up to sponsor in the 2020-2021 school year! Sponsorship commitments are no more than one year and can be renewed annually.
We know God works powerfully when we come to Him humbly in prayer and ask Him to lead us well.
Please pray for:
God's direction and provision
the hearts of Imagine children and their families
good relationships amongst children and families
safety and protection (both physical and spiritual) for our loved ones in Haiti
for the well-being and future of the entire community of Despinos, Haiti
for the nation of Haiti particularly in the midst of the difficulties of political unrest and COVID-19
for the leaders of Imagine on the ground in Haiti and the US/Canada
Consider visiting our 'sponsor' page and praying specifically for a different Imagine child/student each day!
Give a one-time gift:
Any donation helps tremendously. It’s through passionate partners like you that we are able to
continue to change lives and create hope.
Share Imagine's work & fundraise:
In the last two years, Haiti has experienced increasing civil unrest which has hindered travel to Imagine Missions. The reality is that team trips aid us greatly in meeting expenses through donations, projects, and sponsorships. It's hard to gain the same enthusiastic energy of visitors who travel to Haiti and then share about Imagine with their friends, select new children to sponsor, and pay for important projects while in-country. But you can share about the story and work of Imagine with your family, friends, and community to help!
Consider hosting a fundraiser specifically for Imagine. Feel free to get creative!
Some ideas include:
Facebook birthday or Giving Tuesday fundraisers
"Change for Change" fundraiser at your local school - click the link for flyer >>> Change for Change
Dine and donate - either at a restaurant (https://www.groupraise.com/restaurant-fundraisers) or by cooking/hosting a meal
Teach your own kiddos about Haiti and allow them to participate in changing lives by hosting a lemonade stand (and praying for Imagine kids and families)
In-person or virtual 5K's
If you would like general information about Imagine's work to share with participants, or have a specific idea for which you would like to fundraise and need more resources or information, reach out to Director Melissa Young at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Visit us in Haiti (when the time is right!):
While we wish this could happen right now, the realities of COVID-19 and Haiti's political unrest limit any safe individual or team travel to Haiti. That doesn't mean we aren't dreaming of and praying about what God has next for trips to Imagine Missions! Stay tuned.
