Heart of Haiti


Have you heard about the Heart of Haiti? Macy's and the Heart of Haiti are partnering together to create one of a kind pieces by master Haitian artists. Using recycled materials, each piece is created by hand and available for sale at the Heart of Haiti collection at Macy's.

The Heart of Haiti group is working to rebuild Haiti. However, instead of a one time handout they strive to create opportunities for local Haitian artisans to earn their own income. Teaching artists how to provide for themselves allows them to be able to continually care for their families. It begins a new way of life. Crafts that are learned can be taught to generations to come and the cycle of poverty will start to be broken.

If you are looking for a unique Christmas gift, here is a great place to start. Help Haiti and get an awesome gift at the same time. Pot holders, picture frames, jewelry, and more.... 

(These are really cute.)



Thanks to the Mom Blogger's Club member program for giving me the opportunity to spread the word about the Heart of Haiti. Not only will this help raise awareness....I may also receive a Heart of Haiti pendant as well.
