In the six months since transitioning into the role of CEO of Meds & Food for Kids, I have been thrilled with the hard work of all our staff and their ability to navigate the difficult reality of Haiti’s unrest and the threat of Covid-19 .
We hosted our first ever virtual Gala, a resounding success, where we raised over $450,000. These donations empower us to continue helping tens of thousands of children and families in Haiti and abroad change the outcomes of their lives.
We also honored the incredible work that Dr. Patricia Wolff has done over the last 30 years to create systemic, sustainable change in Haiti. It’s an absolute honor to take the helm of this organization following Dr. Pat.
With all of these successes, we know that we have the potential to increase our impact. And in order to do so, we are looking at all options to maximize our outreach and fundraising efforts. A first step is to focus on digital marketing to let more people know of the amazing work that all of our supporters have made possible. In late July, we will launch a new logo and website, so please be on the lookout for emails and social media posts as we reveal these exciting changes.
We strongly believe that this new brand will help us tell our story more effectively, share the important work that we’re doing with new audiences, and show that saving the life of another person is possible for all of us. We also believe this change will strengthen our brand and enable us to tap into a tremendous amount of potential for growth.
We are grateful for your continued partnership in this journey. There is so much great work still to be done.
