Be Like Brit: 12 Who Made a Difference in Central Mass in 2012

Wednesday, December 26, 2012

 

The Be Like Brit Foundation has raised more than $5,000 for furnishings of an orphanage under construction in Haiti. Brit's Orphanage will open early next year and is named in honor of Britney Gengel, a Rutland native who tragically lost her life at the age of 19 in the January 2010 earthquake while on a mission to serve the children of Haiti.

After Britney's death in 2010, her parents began "Be Like Brit" to take up the cause of their daughter and help the poverty-stricken children of Haiti. They made it their mission to honor Britney with the building of the "Be Like Brit" orphanage, which is set to open in early 2013. It will house 66 children in need.

A dozen student volunteers at Becker College held a fundraiser last month to generate money for an upcoming service trip to Haiti where they will stay at the soon-to-be-open Brit's Orphanage and carry on her mission of service.
