Devoted to Children's mission is to meet the immediate and basic needs of the most vulnerable children in the village of Cayes Jacmel, Haiti and to empower them to become independent, educated and thriving community members. D2C operates an small family home/orphanage in Cayes Jacmal, Haiti and is a registered 501(c)3 in the United States. This orphanage is not just a home, but a family for seven amazing children from ages six to seventeen years old who are former slaves (called restaveks in Haiti), abandoned or whose family simply can not care for them due to the extreme poverty in which they live. These children are now thriving thanks to the care of Devoted to Children and our supporters.

Few bands have the ability to evoke an old-school throwback vibe and yet sound entirely fresh and new at the same time. Royal Jelly Jive is one of those bands. Combining elements of Soul, Rock, Swing and Hip-Hop, Royal Jelly Jive shakes up every dance-party and grooves harder than your typical rock n' roll band dares to go. It is all fronted by enigmatic singer Lauren Bjelde, whose sultry voice and songwriting lands somewhere in-between Amy Winehouse and Tom Waits. The infectious sounds of swingin' horns, gritty keys and a bumpin' rhythm section carry a crowd into bliss... creating an unforgettable live experience that will leave you wanting more.
