Bloggers Trip... Going to Haiti, Friends!

saturated canary digis 

I like to invite you on a trip with me and 5 other bloggers this April.

Do you remember Help One Now?  You and I have gathered together twice this year (one, two) to raise money for their teachers and children in Haiti.  There is something so beautiful about what this organization does; and I am humbled, scared, and excited to be a part of telling the stories of their people this spring.  

I will be joining some amazing bloggers/writers on this trip:


I am thrilled to meet the children rescued from a life of hopelessness and the caregivers who daily nurture and love them.  What an honor.  I cannot wait to share this journey with my readers.  It is something far outside my comfort zone (not a big traveller, this homebody), and I may spend the whole time crying.  Because beautiful Gospel stories make my eyes overflow.  

Follow along on IG @kristacanary .
I'd be stoked if you go along with me, friends!

  11. How wonderful to be helping others. If I were to go someplace I think I might like to go to Russia on a missions trip.

  12. It will be an amazing experience. I did a bit of voluntary work painting a school in a mountain village in India in 1998 and it was incredible meeting the children. I'd love to go back some day and spend longer. Your trip will be even more amazing. Lots and lots of emotion, but so rewarding. Have a wonderful time x

  14. I have always felt that I do my best work when I reach out to people I meet every day and help them. There are people all over the world that need help and many of them are in front of us daily. Some need a meal, a place to stay and be safe until they can move one, some need a friend who will not judge them and help them to become who they have potential to be. There are so many people that need essential things for life that we pass by without seeing the need because we think they are in other parts of the world not where we live.
    I have traveled all over the world, especially in Asia and seen so many people in need everywhere. I try and do what I can whenever I meet someone, but I also know I can do more. That is what I want to do to make the world better, is give more of myself everyday no matter where or when.
    I think it's wonderful that you are reaching out and spreading love to all people.
