April 2013 Haitian Migrant Worker Outreach

Ernest Claude, artist extraordinaire, is getting set to draw illustrations for the Children's Pages of the (FREE) Haitian Migrant Worker Journal, once again.

In this summer's issue of the Haitian Migrant Worker Journal, the Children's Pages will consist of a story, THE MIGRANT CAMP TWINS AND THE LITTLE FREE LIBRARY.

The above story is a sequel to last summer's story, THE MIGRANT CAMP TWINS AND THE VISITOR.
The Journal, and the story in the Children's Pages, are available in English, Haitian Creole and Spanish, for distribution at migrant camps in Atlantic County and Burlington County, NJ.

To learn more about Haitian Migrant Worker Outreach (HMWO), go to www.HaitianMigrantWorkerOutreach.Org.

To learn more about Little Free Libraries, go to www.LittleFreeLibrary.Org.

The (FREE) Haitian Migrant Worker Journal accepts submissions of articles, story ideas, letters to the editor, book reviews, comics, recipes, poems, etc. in English, Haitian Creole, and Spanish.  Use contact information at the bottom of this post to submit materials.  Inclusion of your submissions in our publications is dependent on acceptance by the editors, and on space limitations. *All submitted materials, if published, become the sole property of HMWO and may be published in our journals, on our web site, or elsewhere.  At this time we have no budget for the journals; submitted material is accepted as a free donation to our cause, to welcome migrant workers to New Jersey.

If you or your group or organization would like to make gift packs for migrant workers, (wash clothes, clothes pins - AND we have plenty of little soaps you may add), please contact me by phone or email.

If you'd like to help teach an English as a Second Language (ESL) class, organize a craft activity, or a musical event with migrant workers, please contact me, Dory Dickson.  See contact information below. 

Also, if you are having a group yard sale, and you're looking for someone to pick up left-overs at the end of the sale - (if you're within 15 miles of Medford, NJ) I'd be happy to come pick stuff up.  HMWO accepts summer clothing for men, women and children, in good condition - including hats of all kinds, and dress clothes for worship services. We especially appreciate donated folding chairs, including lawn chairs.
