My cousin, Jez Blacker runs a lighting design business and an LED lights website. As if that isn’t enough, he and his wife Lynzi have started a non-profit, charitable organization called U2U World. Lynzi recently was asked for safety vests for a clean-up project they are a part of out there in Haiti. Here is the report that she posted on FaceBook yesterday.
REPORT FROM HAITI AND OUR CHARITY U2U … this is awesome – we work alongside a Haitian non-profit called CHE (Community Health Evangelism) and they asked us to supply them with ‘work vests’ for their ‘Keep the Saline Clean’ Project. The Saline is a slum where 100’s of people live – it gets flooded regularly and trash washed in from mainland Haiti. (Look on our FB album Community Centre to see more photos of the Saline). Here’s some photos of families cleaning the Saline .. thank you so much to National Safety Inc. in Seattle who Jez’ cousin Rob Vajko works for who donated 30 vests. Congratulations to Mickenson Francillon who is overseeing this project.
We were proud to be able to help out, even in this small way. Thank you Jez and Lynzi as well as U2U and everyone involved.
