Now, more than ever, the people of Haiti need our help

Please consider creating and selling "HAITI HUT HOUSES" and then donate the money to Atcac Hope center school organization that provides relief to the earthquake and non-Earthquake victim�s children of Haiti.

Making Tiny Hut Houses...
Materials needed:

Scrap cardboard or matboard, permanent markers, white or stick glue (to glue the pieces together)
White glue (Elmers) - should not be washable glue- to seal the house before finishing.
EnviroTex Lite (get at a craft store) or Polyurethane pin back or magnet hot glue gun (to attach the pin back/magnet)
Directions:
� Cut the cardboard into triangles, rectangles, and squares
� Glue together to form a simple house. Add small doors and windows out of cardboard/matboard.
� Use markers to design and color - don't forget the edges and the back!
� Sign the back (artist signature)
� Paint a light coat of Elmer's Glue on the house (to seal the markers and add-ons) and let dry.
� Mix up the EnviroTex (read the directions). This stuff MUST be used outside. If you can't use this
product, Put on about 4 coats of Polyurethane (let dry between coats).
� Drizzle onto the houses - aim for an even coating. You only need to do the front side and edges of the house.
� Let dry overnight
� Glue on a pin back or a magnet with a hot glue gun.
� Attach to a card if you wish.

Selling the Pins:
� Of course, you may sell these however you wish, however, we suggest that you sell them for $5.00 each, if your community can afford this price.
� Where do you sell? We give each person (who wants to sell) a set number to sell. When they return with the money for those pins/magnets, we give them more if they wish to sell more.
� Set up a table outside a store or church and entice the patrons to contribute. Send them to work with parents of your class/group members.
