Something to consider

From my colleague and friend, Jesse Colaizzi:

Since March 2010, I have been collaborating with my good friend, travel partner and client, Ian Rosenberger, on a self-initiated relief project in the earthquake ravaged Port au Prince, Haiti. Our Project:

Meet Tassy Filsaime…
He’s 19, and somehow he survived the deadliest catastrophe in the history of the Western Hemisphere, but a cancerous tumor in his cheek is surely going to kill him, simply because he was born poor, in Haiti… unless we do something.

On August 26, you, your readers and followers can help save his life.
Thanks to the incredible generosity of Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, PA, Tassy has a chance to receive the two surgeries that will save his life for a fraction of their normal cost. We need to raise $30,000 to make it happen. One night, one cause, one life. Join us, and make the difference in the life of a boy.

Join us for “A Night With Tassy Filsaime.”
