Toys For Haiti and Fundraiser for Haitian Relief
The December 5th game will fundraise for toys and donations for Haiti in support of the AJE Foundation. Game attendees, fans, and the general public are asked to bring a toy for a Haitian child to Veterans Memorial Arena.
"We are proud to sponsor Team Haiti for their commitment to ongoing relief efforts to rebuild Haiti. AJE Foundation is committed to the daily work of bringing hope to the lives of children and families in Haiti. We have a synergy in our efforts and it only makes sense to join together in our efforts," says Antoine Eusebe, founder of the AJE Foundation.
"On behalf of Team Haiti and the ABA, we are happy to come to Jacksonville to play the Giants as well as to assist the AJE Foundation to raise funds and toys for the people of Haiti," says Harold Whaley, Founder/Manager/Coach of Team Haiti.
"We look forward to welcoming Team Haiti to the city of Jacksonville as well as to have the opportunity to play the team for such a terrific cause," says Kevin Waters and Ron Sholes of the Jacksonville Giants. Sholes also stated that, "The Giant's Organization and the City of Jacksonville welcome the opportunity to participate in such a worthy cause."
The AJE Foundation is the realization of its founder, Antoine Eusebe, and his childhood dream of challenging the vicious cycle of poverty and lack of access to basic resources in the daily lives of the children of Haiti. In 2006, Antoine established AJE providing housing to about 40 children in Fonds-des-Negres and 14 in Port-au-Prince. AJE looks forward to transporting the toys donated to the children of Haiti for the Christmas holidays. To Donate a toy, please visit http://www.ajefoundation.org/Donate.html.
