HAND IN HAND FOR HAITI  

 

Starboard Cruise Services and Onboard Media have joined forces as proud sponsors of Hand in Hand for Haiti, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. This foundation is a collective response to the humanitarian crisis in Haiti following the catastrophic earthquake that hit the country on January 12, 2010.

 

The project set out to build a sustainable school complex for the neediest children of the city of Saint Marc. After generating extraordinary support from the travel retail industry the world-class educational facility, Lycée Jean-Baptiste Pointe du Sable, opened its doors on October 3, 2011.  The hurricane-proof, anti-seismic, sustainable school complex offers accessible education from pre-school to secondary school, in Saint-Marc, Haiti, an area of great need.

 

Starboard Cruise Services and Onboard Media have committed to help the foundation raise $550,000 in 2014 to continue to help build and operate the Lycée Jean-Baptiste Pointe du Sable in Saint-Marc.

 

Ready to lend a hand in the Miami area? As proud sponsors we host several events throughout the year. You can walk or run a few miles through Zoo Miami in October or play a round of golf at the legendary Biltmore Golf Course in November – all for a child’s education. There are plenty of ways to help and have fun.
