The Restore Haiti Christmas Shop is Here!
In addition to our great newly designed tshirts, windbreakers, and polo’s, we have some exciting products for you that were made in Haiti! One of our most requested items by our team members is Haitian Coffee. Haiti was once known for its coffee and with many people traveling there again it is in high demand! Restore Haiti has worked with an organization who has fairly sourced these Haitian coffee beans from local farmers and then brought them here to the U.S. to freshly roast them just in time for the Holidays!
Restore Haiti has also partnered with “Haiti Made”, an organization that seeks tobuild a ‘Circle of Trade’ united around quality products, economic sustainability, & dignified jobs to fight against Haiti’s orphan and child slavery crisis. These high quality leather passport covers and hot beverage sleeves (with stainless steel cup) were made in Haiti just last month by a group of women who are passionate about the opportunity to support themselves and their children by creating these products, customized with our Restore Haiti logo.
As you consider your shopping list this holiday season, purchasing through Restore Haiti makes your Christmas dollars stretch further by helping support not only our organization but also the local Haitian economy and its farmers, entrepreneurs, and families by giving them an opportunity to provide you with the high quality and meaningful Christmas gifts you want to give and people want to receive!

Have you ever been interested in going on a Mission trip but have thought- for whatever reason- you couldn’t make a full week? Have you wanted to bring your family on a different type of trip? Have you taken your family vacation at the beach for the past 12 years and are looking for a different type of trip this coming summer? Restore Haiti’s Culture Immersion trip could be fore you!
Next summer we are going to offer a different type of trip. We will leave on Thursday, June 12 and return the following Tuesday. You will experience a lot of Haiti,and by bringing many people we will help boost the local economy by staying in hotels,buying products, and eating at local restaurants. There will be a few work projects for us to participate in and also we will visit people bringing care packages to deliver.
Would you think about joining us? Bring family members and even a few new relationships to the project. Restore Haiti has a few projects that we would love to introduce you to: Rebuild Haiti, where we find people in need, fundraise and build them a new home. A sponsorship program where 600 students are fed 5 times a week, go to school and have access to our medical clinic. You will experience the community life and have a few surprises!
Please think about going on this trip and prepare now. IF you don’t have a passport, apply for one. Sign ups will start September 3rd, with a $150 deposit to Restore Haiti. You will book your own flight using the parameters we give you, and leave the rest to Restore Haiti! There are a few add on options you can choose, so your trip should cost between $900-$1100 plus airfare.
Thank you again for your interest in going!
President, Restore Haiti
It’s School Supply Time Again!
It is that time of year again, time to give our sponsors and friends of Restore Haiti the opportunity to help with school supplies for the children in Haiti. This year, we are going to be doing it a little differently. We want to make sure each school supply package that our students receive is consistent and contains what is needed for their age and grade. So this year Restore Haiti will be assembling packages of supplies for the children. The Restore Haiti supply packs will be filled with pens, pencils, erasers, rulers, crayons or colored pencils as well as calculators and protractor/compass for the older students.
