While I’m guessing that most of the people on your Christmas list already have everything they need, it’s hard to think of anything enslaved Haitian kids like Patrick don’t need.

They’re denied what every child should be able to count on – a chance to go to school, the opportunity to play and form friendships, the love and protection of parents …

Christmas comes, and it doesn’t matter whether they’ve been naughty or nice. They aren’t on Santa’s or anybody’s list. Christmas is just another day of drudgery, hurt, and humiliation.

That was the situation Patrick faced last Christmas. But this Christmas is different for Patrick. Watch this short video to find out why:

Schools Not Slavery

This Christmas you can be the difference between a child enslaved and a child in school.

Please watch this short video and find out how.

With deep gratitude,

David Diggs
