Last week, BRAC USA received a letter and a donation from James, age 4, for children in Haiti. James dictated this letter to his mother, and in the letter he explains to the children of Haiti, “There is some money coming. I am sending this because I know you don’t have money to buy food and things to drink.”

James dictated this letter to his mother, and in the letter he explains to the children of Haiti, “There is some money coming. I am sending this because I know you don’t have money to buy food and things to drink.”

The letter goes on to explain how James and his sister Maya earned the money that they donated to this cause. James wrote,

“I fed our dog scout every day. I pulled up weeds in the garden (but not the broccoli). I used soap and water to clean the shed. I cleaned up the house, especially with the vacuum. I washed windows.” We were touched by James and Maya’s passion, no doubt inspired and enabled by their parents, Stefan and Ashley.

BRAC has made a credible commitment to improve the lives of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people in Haiti, empowering women and girls, and fostering bottom-up economic development through sustainable financial services and social enterprise development. Drawing on its decades of experience in scaling up successful programs to a national level, BRAC has sketched a plan to implement an integrated development program.

Thank you, James and Maya, for the beautiful letter and for contributing to our work and touching our hearts.
