“Breakfast With Santa” is one of the most anticipated events for many of the schools and orphanages that serve needy and poor children in Haiti. Aside from the children having a memorable experience and receiving Christmas gifts, the event gives hope to parents who are not able to afford to celebrate and give gifts to their children during Christmas. It also is a great way to inspire members of the Diaspora and others to give back to the less fortunate in Haiti” said the event’s founder, Judith Joseph. To date, more than 35,000 children within the last nine years have benefitted from this event and there is no question, for many this has been one of the best event they have partaken in. Witnessing the joy and smiles on these youngsters’ faces is indicative that the fun-filled day impacts their lives as well as the volunteers, sponsors and other participants. BWS’s main focus is to share the joyful spirit of Christmas and promote the value of education among children in Haiti as well as Haitian American children.
