Living Haitian


Can you “Live Haitian” for one day?

As the poorest country in the western hemisphere, many Haitians are left without modern conveniences that we all take for granted every day.

Haiti Bible Mission is an organization in Haiti that seeks to build up indigenous leaders among the Haitian people as well as meet their needs with building projects and food programs

By "Living Haitian", you pledge to go without electricity for one day, thereby getting a taste for the way Haitians spend their lives everyday. The money that sponsors donate to you for "Living Haitian" will go to Haiti Bible Mission to continue their work in western Haiti.

Living Haitian Instructions

Abstain from all forms of electricity, including:

Lights, computer, stove, stereo, microwave, washer, hairdryer, etc.

Have people sponsor you by donating money to Haiti Bible Mission for your commitment to “live Haitian.” They can sponsor you by clicking the "donate" button on any page of the Haiti Bible Mission website and selecting "Living Haitian" on the drop down menu. You can also mail a check with Living Haitian 2013 and your name in the memo to:
