James does his Algebra: Port au Prince, Haiti
Jennifer Amato, editor of the North Brunswick and South Brunswick Sentinel, found us after she learned of the medical supply drive we are currently running in conjunction with Retro Fitness in North Brunswick. Retro Fitness North Brunswick owner, Bill Iovino, graciously donated space at his gym to be used as a drop off site for both his members and the public to donate medical supplies to be shipped to Haiti.
We met with Jennifer and spent almost 2 hours discussing our organization, the work we have done since the earthquake on January 12th, and our future projects and plans. We know Jennifer is a very busy person and we truly appreciate her willingness to spend so much time with us and to put together such a great article!

We will continue to accept donations of wheelchairs, walkers, crutches, canes, and similar medical devices at the North Brunswick Retro Fitness location through June 15th 2010. For directions, please visit their website at: http://northbrunswicknj.retrofitness.net/Web/us/en/locationdetail.dhtml

For This One is finalizing plans for our next trip to Haiti, in August of this year! Our team will be staying in Gonaives, Haiti where we will lend a hand in a newly established school, and aid public sanitation by building a composting toilet. We can’t wait to go….
