Global Resort Homes, an Orlando Vacation Home company, is excited to be involved in what they call their "Global Outreach Program" for victims of the Haiti earthquake.

Global Resort Homes is partnering with Faith in Action, a local organization who have been involved with a mission in Haiti for over 30 years.  Faith in Action supports local church's in Haiti, group homes for children, feeding programs, teaching programs and more.  Faith in Action is directly linked with people on the ground in Haiti distributing the supplies to those who need it. 
 
"We are very excited to do our part to help the people in need" said Global Resort Homes Vice President, Robyn Bouchard.  "We have been looking for the right way to get involved in helping the people of Haiti and feel that this is the right fit for us."  Faith in Action has 30 years of established relationships and their village as most others have been destroyed by this earthquake.  All the buildings are unsafe and the majority of the people are now living on the streets.  Global will being help by collecting; tarps, tents, non perishable food and water.  Global Resort Homes is going have drop off locations at both their offices starting Thursday February 18th.  You can find their locations on the website at http://www.globalresorthomes.com . Global is also getting involved by making it easy for their vacationing guests who want to lend a hand by filling "Bags of Love".  "The Haitian people are a very proud culture" said Sandra Hall, manager for Faith in Action. "We have been able to fill over 800 bags with things they also need such as soap, comb, toothbrush, toothpaste, washcloths and deodorant said Hall, "the people so appreciate it".  Global will have gallon zip-lock bags available at both locations and will collect full bags for anyone wanting to participate. 
 
Faith in Action has cargo planes leaving weekly from Venice Florida directly to Haiti and it is the goal of Global Resort Homes to be making weekly trips with donated items to fill those planes.  "If our efforts can somehow effect people in a positive way, we will know we have succeeded" said Bouchard.  If you live in the Orlando area or are on vacation, come, join Global Resort Homes in making a difference in the lives of the people of Haiti.
