A local woman with roots in Haiti hopes to raise thousands of dollars with a special activity this Friday in downtown Stettler.

Face-painting, a bake sale and kids’ photo booth will be part of the fun at the Fundraiser for Haitian Education at Family Chiropractic from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“My goal is to raise $5,000 at the event to help five students in my hometown of Jeremie get the education they deserve,” said Josie Erickson.

“Somebody in Canada paid for my schooling, so I want to do the same for other teens in Haiti.”

Haiti is a generally poor country, and education is expensive, she said.

“The more money we raise, we have a chance to help more teens get a proper education.”

All money raised is pegged to educate teens in Haiti. For more information, phone Erickson at 403-430-0371.
