New Story – Help Fund A Home in Haiti

Feld Thoughts

We’re focused on funding 100 homes in 100 days in Leveque, Haiti. We are only $5,000 away from changing the life of a family in Haiti. The post New Story – Help Fund A Home in Haiti appeared first on Feld Thoughts. I got a random email from Brett Hagler last Thursday asking me to help his startup New Story. I looked at his web site and quickly told him it wasn’t something we’d be into exploring as an investment.

My Trip To Haiti

Thinking About Thinking

I wasn’t originally planning on blogging about my trip to Haiti as the decision to go was more of a personal one. So, here it goes: I spent a week in Haiti serving through a collaboration between two organizations – Jordan International Aid (JIA) and J/P Haitian Relief Organization (J/P HRO). Our sending organization, JIA, has been sending medical teams to Haiti every third week of the month since the earthquake first hit Haiti.
