As we make our way to Macon, GA for the opening of our “Beauty in the Face of Destruction” exhibit, we’d like to announce our philanthropic partnership with Community2Community (C2C). With this exhibit our intention is to bring awareness to the continued efforts of non-profits dedicated to the rebuilding of Haiti. We’ve identified Community2Community as one of these organizations and as a result, we will donate 10% of our exhibition proceeds to them.
Community2Community’s mission is “To serve as an umbrella organization working and collaborating with individuals, agencies and other organizations to facilitate broad-based initiatives that mobilize intellectual, financial, and material resources to recovering international communities in a sustained effort to support their transformation into healthier, sustainable, self-sufficient communities.”
Marie-Yolaine Eusebe, a Haitian-American, resigned from her position at American Express after the devastating earthquake hit in 2010 to found C2C. She selected her father’s hometown, Petite Goâve, as the first place to map out and begin rebuilding efforts. C2C is currently in the process of implementing the Haïti Restoration and Transformation Pilot Project in Piton Vallue, a small village in Petite Goâve. Phase 1 is complete, and they are on target to continue with the next phase of work.
We invite you to visit our exhibit at the 567 Center for Renewal Art Gallery in Macon, GA (January 4th – 25th) and to learn more about Community2Community. We are truly thrilled about this partnership and hope we can make a valuable financial contribution to them as they work to rebuild a nation!
