Thank you to Jean-Marc Caubet and Michael Barrett at TFWA for allowing the Hand in Hand for Haiti project to host a special display outside Monday’s Gate One2One conference.

Hand in Hand for Haiti is a travel retail industry response to the catastrophic earthquake of 12 January.

Registered as a 501 (c) (3) Foundation, it will build school facilities in one of the most needy parts of Haiti.


The display was staffed all day by Lynn Arce of DFS (above with me) and colleagues from the retailer’s wonderful Singapore team.

TFWA also kindly allowed me a ten-minute slot to talk about the project and to thank the industry for its amazing support. Lynn and I were delighted at the collective reaction.

I’ll be bringing you more news soon of Hand in Hand for Haiti. Last week two of the founding Steering Committee members, Ed Brennan and Olivier Bottrie, paid their second visit to Haiti. I’ll be joining them again in June. There has been remarkable progress. Watch this space.
