A "Voices of Haiti" Cruise Around New York City

I always enjoy meeting enthusiastic children who are eager to learn.

Last weekend, I was invited to speak at a very special “Voices of Haiti” cruise around Manhattan. The event, co-hosted by the Andrea Bocelli Foundation, and Jet Support Services Inc., was part of a week-long series of activities for the “Voices of Haiti” children’s choir. The group is part of ABF's Break The Barriers initiative, aimed at supporting education, promoting community development, and fighting poverty in less fortunate nations. JSSI partnered with ABF and provided the flight for the choir’s first excursion to the United States.

I was honored to participate and to share my knowledge with the young, energetic crowd. I made a delicious salad for everyone using a recipe from my newest book, “Martha Stewart’s Vegetables”. I talked about nutrition and the importance of eating fresh, wholesome foods. And, I spoke about my travels to Haiti and all the delicious exotic fruits I tried there. Here are some photos.
