A Thank You FOR Us and FROM Us
On Wednesday, March 24, 2010 Haitian Roots was honored at a Salt Lake Community Service Leaders Luncheon hosted by Elder Steven E. Snow of the Presidency of the Seventy of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Also recognized at the luncheon were:
United Methodist Committee on Relief
RaFIKis – Friends in Kenya
XanGo Goodness Foundation
Quelessebougou – Utah Alliance
Healing Hands for Haiti International Foundation
The luncheon was very humbling for us on many counts. First, we were humbled to be honored by a religious organization who provides such massive amounts of humanitarian aid through out the world. Second, we were humbled to be surrounded by other organizations who work in different places all over the world and to feel of their goodness. Third, we were humbled because the thanks really does not go to those of us who were at the luncheon as much as it goes to YOU—OUR SUPPORTERS. Without YOU, Haitian Roots would be nothing but a lovely idea.
So, as Elder Snow thanked us for our kindness and generosity in serving our fellowman through out the world, we would like to pass that thanks on to you for all of your support and all that you are doing to help make a difference in the lives of children and their families in Haiti.
