Fast For Healing In Haiti
Fast For Healing in Haiti
There is nothing more powerful than collective hearts and minds coming together in the name of healing. Our brothers and sisters in Haiti have experienced the extreme depths of pain, loss, and suffering. Current conditions have left hundreds of thousands of men, women, and children fighting for their basic needs. Donations are essential but demonstrating solidarity in recognition of their current conditions by giving up our basic luxuries is even more powerful. Think about the amount of money we spend on a cup of coffee from Starbucks, a glass of wine at the bar, or even the time you spend watching your favorite television show. We are inviting you to participate in a “Fast for Healing in Haiti” on Sunday Jan 24 to Tuesday Jan. 26. If you plan to participate RSVP to the event.
Do what works best for you within your comfort zone. Ideally, participants will do a juice fast, consisting of fresh squeezed juices. If that is too extreme, then eating only raw food (Salads, fruits) is also ideal. Most importantly, NO ALCOHOL, COFFEE, or any other vice of the sort.
We also ask that each participant donate to one of the following organizations:
Text “Yele” to 501501, which will automatically donate $5 to the Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund (it will be charged to your cell phone bill) or visitwww.yele.org .

Hope for Haiti
We want to spread the word about the power of collective healing. We ask that you log on and post the word COLLECTIVE HEALING in your headline for at least one day to show that you are giving your time and energy in the name of healing.
We will post daily positive affirmations as reminders of why we have chosen to give up our basic comforts in the name of healing. We also invite you to share your thoughts, prayers and affirmations on this event wall and in your headlines.
Many thanks for recognizing your power to be a catalyst for healing. Happy fasting!
Much Peace and Love,
