Students receive two full meals at school.
Earlier this week, we told you how running around Zoo Miami this Saturday can help the kids of a new Haitian school, Lycée Jean-Baptiste Pointe du Sable. But that's not the only way to support the Hand in Hand for Haiti charity that built and runs the school. Here's another way: go duty-free shopping.
Hand in Hand for Haiti was actually founded by three heavy-hitters in the travel retail industry: DFS Group chairman and CEO ED Brennan, Estée Lauder Travel Retailing Worldwide president Olivier Bottrie and The Moodie Report founder and publisher Martin Moodie.
All three companies encourage their employees and business partners to get involved with the charity, and have successfully raised hundreds of thousands of dollars over the past few years to get the school in Saint-Marc up and running. If you support any of these businesses by buying duty-free goodies on your travels, you're also contributing in some small way to the cause.
You can, of course, do even more by donating to the charity directly or sponsoring a child.
