    On Friday, November 14, 2014, Susie Krabacher, Co-Founder of the non-profit HaitiChildren which serves children in Haiti, and The Links Organization of Denver kick-started a school philanthropy program called “Change for Change in Haiti.” Hallett Fundamental Academy’s goal is to raise $2,000 for the organization by collecting loose change over the next month. The mission of the International Trends and Services facet is to expand the global platform for programs designed and developed to service the educational, health, and cultural needs of people of African descent throughout the world. As part of the project, six students will travel with Susie to Haiti to see firsthand what their efforts have accomplished and the work that HaitiChildren is doing.

    For over twenty years, Aspen-based philanthropists Susie and Joe Krabacher have dedicated much of their lives to bringing desperately needed care to the youngest and most vulnerable residents of the Caribbean island through their humanitarian organization, HaitiChildren. “We believe that the best way to heal these children is in their own country,” says co-founder Susie Krabacher. “That’s why we work so hard to provide the children with the local support and services they need to heal and thrive.”
