December 7, 2015 (Miami, FL) — Jones Pierre and Pierre-Louis family present the Annual Christmas Giving In Haiti 2015 Toy Drive. Started in 2013 by Lex Pierre-Louis, founder of Lex Promotions and Marketing Group, and Jones Pierre, CEO of I Print and Design, this year the South Florida entrepreneurs collaborated with Choice Airways, to bring the children of Haiti some Christmas cheer.
“Since 1993, my Auntie Yverlline Pierre-Louis, has been organizing toy drives in Haiti for the kids during the holidays,” said Mr. Pierre-Louis. “As my success grows, I feel compelled to give back and better the Haitian community where many of my family members still reside.” It was only natural that he teamed up with long time business associate Jones Pierre, who is also of Haitian descent. “I remember when I used to go to Haiti as a child with my mom, all of our family would gather around because they knew my home had something for them. The look on everyone’s face when their name was called and they received their gift was priceless!” Pierre recalls.
In 2014, over 1,000 toys were collected and donated in Haiti, this year the goal is to significantly increase that donation to 5, 000. “Unfortunately, 2015 has been a complicated year because of the political elections and we could not start the drive without confirmation on how the toys would be delivered,” said Pierre-Louis. On December 1, the Toy Drive received confirmation from Michel Desrosiers, president of Choice Airways, agreed to deliver the toys to Haiti.
The organization is collecting donations for youth ages 4 to 18, including shoes (new or used); unwrapped toys, sports items, stuffed animals, dolls, makeup kits, games, toiletries, school supplies such as book bags, notebooks and pencils, new or gently used clothing and shoes before December 16, 2015. The items can be dropped off or mailed to Print Giants – I Print & Design Miami Office located at 7305 NE 1ST Place, Miami, FL 33138 between the hours of 11:00AM – 7:00PM, Monday through Friday.
