A Marin County yoga instructor hopes to make a difference in the lives of children orphaned by the earthquake in Haiti. She visited them last year and was inspired by their perseverance.

She came back to Haiti and decided to build a center where they can live, a real home.

Lisa Rueff and her husband contacted architects and had plans made for the center which will house 100 children.

Then she held a series of yoga fund raisers to get the money. She has raised $25,000 so far, but they still need more.

They leave this week to start building the center and changing lives of children in Haiti.
