      Dear Mr. Belleroche, thank you very much for your thought provoking article. I am the co-founder of a non-profit organization called The Change Mission, and our launch project is the reconstruction of a school in Haiti. I would very much like to speak with you, and will be in the Austin area soon and also in Haiti. You can contact me through our website,

      Hello Belleroche, It is unfortunate that tragedy had to happen to our mother land but one thing we know for sure that God is in control and hopefully something good will come out of it. How is your family? Anyone in your family was affected? How is your mother?. Keep in touch. All the best.
