Fundraising Concert for Haiti

Two years after the dramatic earthquake that rocked Haiti, killing over 40 thousand people, many are still mobilizing to show support and help Haitians start over.
On Friday January 13th, a "Hope and a Future" fundraising concert will be held at Brooklyn College. Each dollar raised will be to support the ongoing work of Community2Community: C2C to finance its Haiti Restoration and Transformation Project.
Thanks to the donations raised so far, C2C was able to build 15 latrines; distribute aqua tablets; and aid in the community's reforesting project.
Oleta Adams, Chrisette Michele, Carimi and many others are scheduled to perform in this concert.
