    You Should Come To Haiti With Us

    Collectively our team has taken nearly 1,000 trips to Haiti. Much of our team is Haitian and lives there full time. Many of us in the U.S. speak the language (Kreyol). Some of us have family there. One of our teammates got engaged there. Whenever we meet somebody we think may be a lifelong supporter of our work, you'll likely hear the conversation end with, "You should think about coming down to Haiti with us". You and one other person get an all-inclusive, immersive trip to Haiti as well as TWO bags in any size/color combo you wish. You'll meet the team, and tour our supply chain first-hand with our founder. We'll show you how beautiful the country is and how different it is from what most people think. You should think about coming down to Haiti with us ;)

    Includes:
    • 2 Better Backpacks in the colors and sizes of your choice.
    • An all-inclusive trip to Haiti for you and a guest.
