THANKS – Coffee Seedling Funds Raised!

Haitian coffee seedling fundraiser

We’re planting 32,000 coffee trees in Haiti

Because of your generosity – Singing Rooster raised $8,000 for a new coffee seedling nursery that will help #reforestHaiti mountains with coffee.  We’re hoping to recruit WOMEN coffee farmers for these seedlings (we’ll keep you updated on our progress).

These amazing companies matched your dollars:

  • H2Tronics
  • Water One
  • Innovative Waters
  • HOH Water Technology
  • International Chemtex
  • Xelera
  • Advantage Water Engineering
  • Klenzoid

That’s a whopping $8,000 for a seedling nursery near Fond Jean Noel / Belle Anse Haiti.

$8,000 = 32,000 coffee trees which grow into earth-stabilizing and income-providing trees for 20 years :

  • over 640,000 pounds of coffee across lifespan of trees
  • over $2,200,000 directly into farmer pockets
  • soil stability, watersheds, & water availability
  • protection of taller, old-growth trees, bird habitats
  • sustains thousands of jobs (dignity & autonomy)

We KNOW agriculture is a great pathway to a self-sustaining Haiti.  Your commitment to drink Haitian coffee and eat Haitian chocolate seems like a simple solution – but we know it takes time and effort.

And we thank you.

If you’d still  like to make a donation — we’re appreciative; we’re building much-needed nurseries across this tiny island nation.  Donate to our coffee seedling fundraiser today!

The walk up the mountains Near Fond Jean Noel is steep.

Along the way, we see painted stone houses and beautiful creole gardens.

The view at the top is worth it — but notice the far mountain?  It’s bare.
