“Global Family Philanthropy's success is all about collaboration.  Spellbinders and Stacey Caron have exemplified their commitment to GFP's efforts in Haiti from the very beginning.  Traveling and crafting with Stacey and Kim Hupke, Spellbinders’ Director of Education, at our orphanage in Les Cayes, Haiti was the most rewarding experience for everyone involved,” said Lori Godlberg, Global Family Philanthropy’s Founder.  “Kim and Stacey were by my side when we rescued Baby Clara.  I will never forget the love they shared and continue to share with our global family.  Spellbinders is a philanthropic corporation, as are their employees and partners.  Together we will continue to embrace and empower our family and friends in Haiti. We've only just begun... look for our crafting/sewing center in 2011.  Global Family Philanthropy is proud to have Spellbinders as a corporate sponsor,” added Goldberg.

Global Family Philanthropy is actively involved with every organization and project they support in Haiti.  The organization provides clothing, school supplies, medicine, personal care items and toys to hospitals, orphanages and schools.
