WE'RE OFTEN ASKED ABOUT DONATIONS. Honestly, monetary donations have the greatest impact on our ministry because we can purchase items in country, benefitting both the recipient and the vendor. However, we recognize that sometimes people would rather help Haiti Awake by buying physical items in the United States. Therefore, we have developed the list below.
The following are useful in prison ministry, children's ministry, and gospel outreaches.
These items can be taken down by teams in their checked baggage:
