Countdown to Haiti
by Coco Rocha

As I write this blog I’m in a hotel in Montreal, the home of Canada’s largest Haitian population. At 4:53pm today there will be drum roll’s heard across the city, and across the world - this is Haiti’s traditional form observance for exactly one year that has passed since the terrible earthquake that devastated their homeland.

In just 10 days I’ll be heading down to Haiti with a few others to see just what has been accomplished in the 365 days that have passed, and how much more still needs to be done. I still need your help though, we only have about two more days for you to send in letters to our office in New York in time for me to take them to Haiti. Remember that these letters are going to children and orphans who have nothing and often have no one either.

If you feel you don’t have time to send in an actual letter, we have set up a special email address you can write to also. We will then print the letters and hand them to the children in person. Please remember to include your name, age and address in all the emails and send them to:

letterstohaiti@gmail.com

Please pass this message onto as many as you can. Whether that be through facebook, twitter, tumblr or just word of mouth. As we consider the earthquake that hit exactly one year ago, let us acknowledge the tragedy of the past while keeping our eyes and hearts open to the prospects of hope for the future.

Love,
Coco

P.S Are there specific things you want me to find out or do while in Haiti? Please let me know in your comments.

Letter From Haiti- My diary in this months Flare.It’s now been 3 months since my trip to Haiti and I’m sure a few of you have been wondering what it was like. I’m very pleased to let you know that Flare magazine has offered to print my entire diary of the trip in a special article, out this month. In the article you’ll also find the photography of my good friend Behati Prinsloo, which I can tell you is absolutely beautiful. I’d like to thank Flare for giving me the opportunity to share my message to its readers, and I’d also like to thank them publicly for the very gracious donation they made to the actual orphanages we visited.Please go out and get your copy today, I promise its a good read! If you don’t have access to Flare magazine, I will be posting the diary on here in a months time. I’m also excited to let you know that James is hard at work on putting together our first documentary - a film all about our special project in Haiti!
