Heart of Haiti

Until earlier today, I had never heard of Heart of Haiti. Heart of Haiti is helping to rebuild Haiti through "Trade, Not Aid." In other words, Heart of Haiti is using commerce and culture to create social change. By selling Heart of Haiti products, Haitian artisans are given the life altering income they desperately need to take care of themselves, their family and their community. The Heart of Haiti collection contains a vast array of handcrafted items such as quilts, metalwork, ceramics, and paintings.


The Heart of Haiti collection has already led to employment of 350 artists in Haiti and has provided some financial benefits for an estimated 4,000 to 5,000 people in the country! That fact alone is amazing, but when you add in the fact that each item is hand made by a Haitian artisan using recycled materials, it becomes even more so. The items they make cost between $25 to $60 and include such products as coasters, necklaces, clutch purses, candle holders, serving trays, picture frames, mirrors, vases and more. The Heart of Haiti collection can be purchased at Macys.com. Stop by and check them out! You can purchase a gift and help rebuild a country all at the same time!


So.....my post is over! What are you waiting for? Visit the Heart of Haiti Collection at Macys.com right now!

Merry Christmas!

Disclosure: I am writing this post to spread the word about Heart of Haiti through a Mom Bloggers Club member program and will receive a Heart of Haiti pendant as a thank you!
