"Hearts for Haiti"

Madison Helping The People of Haiti

Dear Local Business:

It all started as a discussion between a mother and her child.  A third grader at Torey J. Sabatini School in Madison, New Jersey was watching the news coverage of the earthquake in Haiti and asked her mother how she could help the children of Haiti.  Like many other children in Madison, she started   brainstorming about how to raise money in her own community.  With the assistance of her mother, the concept for Hearts for Haiti was developed.  The idea was pitched to the Principal of her elementary school and he  loved it.  And that is how Hearts for Haiti came to be.  

The sale of Hearts for Haiti Valentines Day cards is the first step of this effort. A  number of local artists in Madison have generously donated their time and resources to creating Valentines that will be sold in the Madison Public Schools beginning on Monday, February 1, 2010.  The next step is to sell Hearts for Haiti T-Shirts in each school, and in various stores within the town of Madison.  We also plan to turn some of these designs into blank greeting cards, to be sold in stores as part of an ongoing effort to raise money for this worthy cause.

As a vital member of the Madison community, we are asking for your help in this effort.  As a business/store owner in the town of Madison, you can help by becoming either a Sponsor or Supporter of this vital fundraising effort.  There are two ways that you can choose to participate:
