Change Matters

If you are looking for a simple way to contribute to our children in Haiti, our “Change Matters” campaign is our ongoing change collecting campaign! By collecting change in a BLB water bottle or any kind of receptacle you can help the children at Be Like Brit. If you would like a BLB water bottle to fill with change from you, your family, your school, or any other group you belong to, please email Kate@BeLikeBrit.org or stop by the OC.

Feel free to take a photo of yourself collecting change for BLB and tag us on social media using the hashtag #ChangeMatters!

BLB Clubs

BLB Clubs Mission Statement:

“To continue to serve the children of Haiti, by establishing independent organizations that promote awareness about BLB, encourage service to others &instill a mindset that together we can make a difference.”

We know that not everyone can make the trip down to Haiti, but still want to make an impact. We believe that BLB Clubs will allow people of all ages the opportunity to affect long lasting change that will greatly benefit the 66 children living at Brit’s Home in Haiti. BLB Clubs have been developed to not only spread awareness about BLB, but to build a strong affiliation with the organization and Brit’s Home, as well.

Requirements to Become a Be Like Brit Club

  • Must appoint an advisor/ leader for the group to act as a liaison between BLB and the club.
  • Each member of the BLB Clubs is a representative of BLB, and must hold the high standards that BLB has set forth.
  • Must have at least 5 members

Operations Center

...

The OC

One of Britney’s favorite shows growing up was The OC, so fittingly Be Like Brit’s Operation Center has become known as “The OC.” We are located at 66 Pullman Street in Worcester, Massachusetts. Originally, Be Like Brit’s headquarters was the kitchen table at the Gengel’s home in Holden, but thanks to dedicated supporters, The OC is now a fully equipped office that enhances Be Like Brit's ability to continue Britney’s compassion.

Capabilities

The OC allows Be Like Brit to further strengthen the relationship with the local US community, collaborate with volunteers, communicate with Brit's Home in Haiti, store donated items in the 1,100 square foot warehouse, and utilize the four offices, volunteer room and conference room to effectively run the internal operations.

Special Thanks

Be Like Brit sincerely thanks Doug and LeeAnn Peterson and The George F. and Sybil H. Fuller Foundation, the local Government (for their compassion) and all of the committed supporters listed below in our “Hall of Fame”. Doug and LeeAnn donated the building to Be Like Brit, The George F. and Sybil H. Fuller Foundation awarded us a grant to complete construction, and the US Government provided endless support. Without these individuals and institutions, the Operation Center would have never been possible!
