Hands and Feet Project

I finally opened the CD “Adios” by Audio A this morning that had been sitting on my coffee table for a few weeks.  I got it because I didn’t reply to the “Selection of the Month” in my BMG music club in time (a membership which I have now completed and cancelled – iTunes forever!).  Inside was a small blurb about an orphanage in Haiti which the guys in Audio A have started.  Here’s the site:

I started a monthly donation.  Startling stats (from the website): 

DID YOU KNOW?
• Nearly half of Haiti’s population is under 14 years of age with a median age of 17
• The infant mortality rate in Haiti is 76 out of 1000 babies born
• The average life expectancy is just 51 years
• Voodoo is widely practiced in Haiti
• Discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1492 as Hispaniola, Haiti, once one of the wealthiest islands in the Caribbean rich in Mahogany, has been plagued by political violence for most of its history and it is now one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere. It’s once majestic mahogany forests have been stripped by lumber merchants who did not care that the top soil washed away leaving a barren land, creating soil erosion and inadequate supplies of potable water.
