Caring for one healthy baby is expensive, as any parent can attest. So you can imagine what it takes to care for 50 babies and small children. It takes a lot of diapers, formula, soap, food, and all the other things required for raising a healthy child. Our monthly operating budget in Haiti is close to $20,000 USD. Our General Fund is continually in need of additional funds as baby care and expenses never stop. We welcome all donations and fundraising efforts for our work in Haiti. If you are willing and interested in leading a fund-raising effort, please do so. Here are a few thoughts of what you can do:
-Work for donations: Offer your expertise or efforts for others and ask them to make a donation to COTP (yard work, simple building projects, clean-up, babysitting)
-Race for COTP: Enter and train for a 5k or a Marathon. Ask friends and family to sponsor you and pledge money for COTP.
-Dinner Party: Host a dinner party or backyard barbecue and ask guests to make a donation to COTP. If you provide the food and atmosphere, people can donate money they would normally use on going out to go toward COTP.
