CaribLaw Fundraises “Dough 4 Haiti”

by Meghan Bradley

When Haiti took the brunt of the Hurricane Matthew last month with a devastating cost of 900 lives, University of Florida’s Caribbean Law Student Association (CaribLaw) jumped into action to raise money for relief efforts.

CaribLaw President, Bathche Fils-Aime had already seen her country get demolished during the earthquake in 2010. After the death toll rose and rose, Fils-Aime knew something had to be done.

“Haiti could no way take another natural disaster,” Fils-Aime said. “It just came down to how CaribLaw would give that aid.”

Using the law student platform to make a difference, CaribLaw members decided to fundraise for Partners in Health: Haiti Relief Fund by hosting Dough 4 Haiti. During the month of October, CaribLaw sold Krispy Kreme donuts on campus by presale of boxes and by selling directly in the law school courtyard. After two Dough 4 Haiti fundraisers, Caribbean Law Society raised a total of $1,128.43.

The proceeds from the fundraiser were sent to Partners in Health: Haiti Relief Fund to help those affected by the devastation of Hurricane Matthew in Haiti.
