Haiti - What If Foundation
Founded in 2000, the What If? Foundation funds food and education programs for children in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. The foundation was serving the Haitian population before the recent quake disaster and will continue to be there for the children of Port-au-Prince long after this crisis is over. Haiti still needs our help and the What If? Foundation could use your support. Give what you can. Visit whatiffoundation.org. Merci.
