It's more than OK to be a HOG
Dave & Jen Huebner got involved with The Global Orphan Project last fall at The BIG Event. Soon after, they funded the construction and support of a boys’ home in an orphan village outside of Port au Prince. Over New Years, they took a “Vision Trip” to see the realities of life in Haiti. They connected with the children and became convinced they could help more, bringing hope and healing in the process. They said their experience “was life-changing. When we returned home, we were inspired to do something more for these kids, to do something bigger than ourselves.”
So Dave & Jen founded the Haiti Orphan Group (HOG). They’re committed to raise the funds to build an entire orphan village and support it for three years. The village will become home for around 100 orphans; it will also include a school for 200 more children, a clinic, and support infrastructure (e.g., latrines, kitchen, dining area, well).
Jen & Dave would like to invite you to visit HOG’s website (www.orphanvillage.com) to learn more about this journey. They “plan to raise these funds through a substantial personal financial donation, soliciting donations from local businesses, fundraisers, and shameless begging for donations from our family and friends.” In short, they plan to become HOGs, and being a HOG is OK when it’s for kids who need a home and a family; in fact it’s more than OK.
