It all started with a mission trip with their church, they met a group of 35 kids and they knew they had to help.

"We just fell in love with them," said Matt Bush, co-founder of All Things New. "But to really take care of them we decided we needed to be down there with them."

Matt and his wife, Jessica, have been at their orphanage a month at a time, but now they plan on leaving Jacksonville so they can move to Haiti for good.

"They need love, they need attention, they need guidance," Jessica said.

So they're using One Spark to help fund their project, and the needs of the kids.

"There is no electricity, no running water, so basically our project is to make money for better facilities," Jessica told a visitor to their exhibit.
