Meeting children like Josephine inspire youth like Danielle Gilbert. Tonight Danielle will be hosting a benefit for HTF and our summer camp in Jacmel, Fet Bondye Bo Lanme. Youth from Colorado, Georgia, and Nebraska will travel to Haiti June 29th - July 10th to put on, once again, the Best. Camp. Ever!
This is Josephine. She is 11 years old, and the smartest young lady I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. She speaks three languages and loves to play jokes on people. Josephine also was abandoned in Haiti as a child because she has cerebral palsy. I had the pleasure of meeting Queen Josephine this summer in Fermathe, Haiti, she loves pretty things, like when we made paper flowers together and she put them in her hair, but most of all, she loves to smile and laugh. If Josephine can find a reason to smile, so can you. Remember what you have and what you have been blessed with, and remember to smile. :)
I’ll see you soon Queen Josephine.
