This outreach program, began in 1998, is dedicated to helping the people and children of Mirebalais, Haiti - a mountain town approximately 50 miles from Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
St. David's, along with other Catholic, Episcopal, and Baptist churches, provides health care, education, and other services with our partner churches in Mirebalais:
Our mission team, made up of doctors, dentists, nurses, and lay people from the member churches as well as doctors and medical students from Port-au-Prince, visits Mirebalais once each year.
Amazon helps out charities with Amazon Smile - when you use Amazon Smile, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible items to Haiti Outreach Mission at no charge to you. When you look at the detail window of the item, a message will be displayed if it's eligible item for the donation process. Tell your friends, the more folks involved, the more we can help Haiti via HOM.
Here's how it works:
1 - go to: http://smile.amazon.com
2 - log on with your Amazon user id and password
3 - go to 'My Account' then 'Change Charity'
4 - Search for 'Haiti Outreach Mission' and select the one with the Troy, MI address
5 - You are done - buy something - there's no donation surcharge to you and Haiti Outreach Mission benefits.
When you sign on to Amazon Smile, just under the Search box, you will see "Supporting: Haiti Outreach Mission".
Please use Amazon 'Smile' instead of normal Amazon to buy your items from Amazon as this donation process only works when purchases are made via Amazon 'Smile'.
