This Eagle Chase Medal
was hand crafted out of recycled 55 gallon oil drums in Haiti.
Much of the money raised at Fire On The River goes to support 6:8’s Sauk Prairie Against Hunger Pack Event where we pack food for global hunger relief. Over the past 4 years, most of the food packed in Sauk Prairie has gone to Haiti. Some of this food feeds those at Anchored in Hope as they are given jobs to support their families. With this connection, we thought it was only fitting that we would commission the metal workers in Haiti to design and create our one of a kind Race Medals.
We would like to say thank you for your support!!! The making of these medals employed 7 Haitian men for a month! That provided them with the means to provide for their families and put food in their children’s mouths. It may sound simple, but jobs and employment are hard to come by in Haiti, especially these days. I wish I could tell you how many times these guys have asked me if I had more work to give! I always had to say no not yet, but then with this order of the medals we were able to pay these men for the beautiful work that they did. Not only do you get an amazingly awesome medal, but you are providing jobs for men who can provide for their families with dignity. Thank you for partnering with us to better the lives of these Haitians.
