Would Mr. Bayard’s airline consider shipping Haitian artworks to New York city?
I used to volunteer for Eye Care Inc. Fellow volunteers would select artworks
for a fundraiser each year in New York and D.C. American airlines freight
dept. went the extra mile and shipped everything free of charge. We raised lots of money
and awareness. Now I’m trying to do a similar model. Raising money for
the Musee d’ Art Haitien in Port au Prince and Ecole in Montrouis. They receive
no funding from Haitian government. Museum has been closed since 2010.
Montrouis school is very beneficial for the community and its neighbors.
If you’d like to discuss further send me an e-mail or call 760-497-2007.
P.S. I’m good friends of Rick and Lynne Forgham. Believe we have mutual
