Join us for our Mother's Day Fundraiser, Haiti Babi's biggest annual event . We love bringing our collective power together for an evening of inspiration and fun. This year's theme celebrates the legacy of the Haiti Babi community – the power to change the lives of Haitian women and their families. This is our largest fundraiser of the year so your generous donations are welcome. We are dedicated to empowering women in Haiti – giving them a hand up, not a hand out – to help build a brighter future for their children.

Shelby Earl

Seattle’s amber-voiced indie-folk artist, Shelby Earl, wasn’t born a songwriter. She became one. And in the words of NPR’s Ann Powers “She writes for those of us who’ve been through a few things.” Earl recognized from long stints in other bands, singing other people’s songs, that she was moved to do more — to become the kind of generative artist she’d long admired. The break up of her band, The Hope, in 2007 began Earl’s search for a role beyond being just “lead singer.” It was that search, and her belief in the rewarding work of songwriting, that led Earl to quit her corporate job in 2009 and start sharing her astoundingly powerful songs. In 2011 she released her debut solo album Burn the Boats, produced by John Roderick of the Long Winters and released on Local 638 Records. The title was inspired by her stepfather telling someone that Earl had “pulled all the boats ashore and burned them” to live her dreams.
