Interested in making a donation?
Another chef and CulinaryCorps supporter recently alerted us to his cousin’s non-profit, Yele.org. Founded by Wyclef Jean, this grassroots organization has been working on some pretty incredible projects, including the establishment of an Yele Cuisine association that allows women to cook and sell food to subsidize meals for children living in poverty.
Their efforts are now shifting to emergency relief including food distribution. Please consider DONATING to their work.
Today is the day when a few dollars can truly make a difference. A kind gesture can mean the world. And a compassionate heart can change a life forever.
Our thoughts are with you Haiti.
