Hope for Haiti – Winnipeg Benefit Concert: Aboriginal Nations for Haitians Benefit Concert – Friday January 29, 2010
We have all be affected by the devastation in Haiti and I have been especially touched by all of the children affected, hurt and abandoned by this natural disaster. My husband and I have given to the Red Cross and Unicef to support their work and our children have been fundraising at school. I heard about this wonderful benefit concert on the radio today which will be happening on Friday and wanted to invite you all to buy tickets and support their efforts.
