SWIPE: John I. Leonard High 2004 Alumni and San Francisco 49ers’ Wide Receiver, Pierre Garçon gives back.

November 15th, 2018, Pierre Garçon Helping Hands Foundation hosted the 4th Annual Thanksgiving Giving Giveaway at John I. Leonard High School in Greenacres, FL. Approximately 50 families received a free turkey and bag full of non-perishable goodies. In addition, 25 turkeys will be distributed in the West Palm Beach area and 75 in the Belle Glade area this weekend.

Immediately following the turkey giveaway, John I. Leonard football team and Head Football Coach Keith Chattin, retired Mr. Garçon’s high school jersey. Mr. Garçon spent nearly an hour answering questions, giving words of wisdom, and encouragement to the football team.

When asked why do you give back Mr. Garçon stated, “I just love giving back and making a difference. One day the students will pay it forward and make a difference as well!”

Earlier this year Mr. Garçon donated $30,000 to JIL for new practice and game day jerseys. In addition to donating $12,000 in scholarships, and anticipating a bike giveaway in December.

#LetsTalkAboutIt :CHANGING STANDARDS 🇭🇹
As a Haitian female you are raised to believe that happiness and success lies in is having a solid career (a nursing career is the most popular choice), having a successful husband (a doctor or lawyer), and to raise your children based on the 3 L’s:

(church:Legliz, :books:L’ecole, :house_with_garden:Lakay) all this by around the age of 30. Now we see more women shifting the focus to self-care and going against what the expectations are and doing what makes them happy, not what the Haitian societal standards projects happiness to be.

They shifted the focus to themselves. Meditating. Mental wellness. Traveling. Following their own passion and dreams. Is the definition of “happiness” changing among the female Haitian generation?

This is a story about what happens when you limit birthright citizenship and stir up hate against a certain class of immigrants. It takes place in the Dominican Republic. Like most countries in the Americas, for a century and a half the Caribbean nation’s constitution guaranteed birthright citizenship for anyone born on its soil, with a couple of exceptions: the children of diplomats and short-term travelers. And like most other peoples in the Americas, Dominicans have had a more complicated relationship with immigration than the framers of that constitution might have anticipated.

The Dominican Republic has long been dependent on a steady stream of cheap immigrant labor that cuts its sugar cane, builds its buildings, and staffs the beach resorts that draw in billions of foreign dollars a year. Almost all of that labor comes from the only country close enough, and poor enough, to have people who want to immigrate in large numbers to the Dominican Republic: its Hispaniolan twin, Haiti.

Some working-class Dominicans without clear Haitian roots resent poorer neighbors willing to accept lower wages and tough conditions. Many wealthy Dominicans who profit wildly off the cheap labor supply are eager to have strict immigration laws in place, too—not because they want less immigration, but because they want a freer hand. Immigrants in the country illegally have no protection from workplace regulations and can be rounded up, deported, and replaced whenever convenient—including right before payday. (Sound familiar?)
