About Be Like Brit Foundation
Britney “Brit” Gengel was a beautiful, fearless and compassionate 19 year old when she traveled to Haiti with Lynn University for a service trip. Upon her arrival, Britney was overwhelmed by the devastating poverty and need visible everywhere. So moved in fact that she sent this text to her mom while volunteering there, “They love us so much and everyone is so happy. They love what they have and work so hard to get nowhere, yet they are so appreciative. I want to move here and start and orphanage myself.” Shortly after sending that text, a catastrophic 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti, killing an estimated 300,000 people, including Britney. In her loving memory, The Be Like Brit Foundation was started. Over the course of two years, a 19,000 square foot earthquake-proof, non-adoptive orphanage was built in Grand Goave, Haiti —the town where Brit was supposed to travel to the day after the earthquake. In the shape of the letter “B” to honor Britney’s last wish. Be Like Brit is now raising the next generation of leaders in Haiti through education, community outreach and individualized support.
