Touched by the people, land and beauty of Gran Sous, Haiti, co-founders Amon Focus and Tamika Blockett, were compelled to start an initiative of service. To contribute to the efforts surrounding Roots of Development, a non-profit based in Washington DC dedicated to the expansion and growth in the Haitian communities, Fresh Water Pop Up Shop was born. Fresh Water Pop Up Shop is a unique fundraising shopping experience that will provide a community of 6,000 people with access to clean water in Haiti. Supporting Roots of Development, the efforts will raise $25,000, the cost of the 3rd Community Water System in the town of Nan Kafe, La Gonave, Haiti, and provide access to clean water for the community. Roots of Development will modify the existing structure by replacing PVC pipe with stronger metal piping and build a tank to purify and hold water for local residents’ consumption.
In an artistic fusion of music, fashion and art, Fresh Water Pop Up Shop is the most highly anticipated event of the philanthropic season. Held at New York City’s premiere nightlife destination and eco-friendly nightclub, Greenhouse in Soho, the evening will be filled with tastemakers, influencers and industry insiders passionate about giving and artistry. On October 11th, every inch of Greenhouse’s 6,000 square feet will be an innovative panorama of creativity with fashion and style pop up shop features, an art exhibit of Gran Sous, Haiti captured by Amon Focus, a silent auction with the city’s most coveted items and music curated by New York’s hottest DJ, hosted by Supermodel and socialite Jessica White. As a special gift to our donors, Fresh Water PopUp Shop has arranged an open bar from 7pm to 8pm with live music from renowned Haitian band, The ZING Experience.
