    I remember a few years ago the team from Trinidad and Tobago showed up with only $500. Their volunteer coach put out a request for help on Twitter and the Haitian team gave them over $1,000. At the time I think they were supported by The Clinton Foundation so they probably just had to request more money from Uncle Bill, but either way Haitians are getting a reputation of being generous, loving people. Keep it up!
