Sosyete du Marche: An American Vodou house

We are the new face of Vodou today, and yet we reflect the old values of Vodou - family, community, commitment to the work of being servitors of spirit. We are European, Haitian, Latino and Native American. We did not choose this path - the Lwa chose us. We are people from all walks of life, looking for answers about life. And within the teaching of Vodou we have found them. We are Sosyete du Marche, Inc, an American Vodou house. Welcome to our cyber lakou. Our work as priests is all about Spirit. Ayibobo.

Haitian AID organizations - Helping the Earthquake Victims in Haiti

Our top picks are of course friends of the Sosyete who work tirelessly in Haiti:

Hearts with Haiti is the group our beloved Jaxx supports. This is the St. Jopseph’s House for Street kids. We sell their annual calendars for them as a fund raiser.

Foundry Haiti Fund is the group that works with the Grande Rue sculptors. Leah Gordon is heading back down to the area and will get this money directly to the families in Grande Rue.

Pazapa is a charity we’ve done work with in Jacmel. They work with handicapped kids, provide meals, schooling and lessons. Please send them support.
