  • 4. “I am Brooklyn™” BK FASHION WEEK{END} For Haiti Abner Louima is turning back toward his native Haiti with a conviction that through philanthropy he can help the Haitian people. ABNER LOUIMA FOUNDATION Abner Louima started the nonprofit organization, Abner Louima Foundation to help his homeland of Haiti and Haitian nationals. It has three primary goals: providing financial aid to the impoverished children of Haiti, constructing senior citizens centers (primarily for Haitians in Miami and New York), and building hospitals in Haiti. ‘’Wherever there is a need, if I can help, I will do it,’’ said Louima, who is currently looking for a site in Port-au-Prince, to build what he hopes will be the first of several hospitals. His foundation, he said, will help raise the private and government donations needed to make the project a reality. Until now, most of Louima’s philanthropic efforts have been self- funded. Brooklyn Style Foundation supports the mission to get Haitian citizens the help they need to rebuild. Our 10th season of the “I am Brooklyn” event will encourage guests to donate to the Abner Louima Foundation. Brooklyn Style Foundation will have “I am Brooklyn™” for Haiti t-shirts on sale to raise funds for the foundation. A percentage of the Fall/Winter 2010 production journal ad sales proceeds will also go the Abner Louima Foundation. The support for Haiti will be an on going process; Brooklyn Style Foundation will continue its support through “Stitch for Success”, Jay Street Baazar and other fundraising events.
