The Haiti House Project

On January 12, 2010, a catastrophic earthquake hit the small country of Haiti, reducing buildings and homes to piles of rubble and killing thousands of people. Immediately, the people of the United States and of just about every country in the world began to devise ways to help the victims of this tragedy. After seeing a presentation that showed the horrible living conditions in Haiti, the authors decided to create a project called Haiti Houses as a way for their students to help the people of Haiti. In this article, the authors share how their Haiti House Project became a big charitable endeavor for their students, and illustrate how this project can be a way to use the power of art to make a difference in the lives of others.(Contains 1 online resource.)
