Christmas represents a time of generosity and love. For 78% of children in Haiti Christmas is just another day. The goal is to bring smiles to 600 children this holiday season by providing a day filled with arts, crafts, music and fun coupled with the distribution of toys. Both parties want to bring the children a “True Noel”. 

“Christmas is a holiday children around the world love, unfortunately in Haiti it is not always easy for parents to celebrate. Through the “True Noel” toy drive, kids in Haiti can experience the spirit of the season as well,” said Dayanne Danier co-founder of Fleur De Vie

“Billionaires Row and Hobbytron.com have generously donated 300 new toys to the project that will assist in bringing joy to many children,” William Benson, Chairman (www.billionairesrow.com)
