In lieu of a gift, we would greatly appreciate a donation to one of our favorite charities.
Founded by Elizabeth's cousin, Bennett Rathbun, Hope on a String (HOAS) works to engage and empower youth in Haiti using music and the performing arts as tools for social change. Through Hope on a String, individuals participate in a wide variety of music classes, instrument lessons, performance groups, theater and dance initiatives, and skill-building workshops. Participants work to build individual confidence, collective pride, powerful relationships, and skills needed to succeed as leaders within their communities. HOAS helps its students identify and fulfill aspirations that create brighter futures for themselves, their families, and their neighborhoods. HOAS invests in locally driven change, and seeks to have a long-term impact on a national level by developing a scalable model for social development in Haiti.
