Heart of Haiti

Visit the Heart of Haiti collection at Macy's

Macy's has a wonderful collection of items that help Haiti. 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!

- 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.

- Instead of providing one-time funding through charity, Heart of Haiti is creating opportunities for Haitian artisans to earn income with dignity by creating jobs and income for the people of Haiti.

- Through the sale of Heart of Haiti products, artisans are able to earn life-changing income for themselves, their families, and their communities. The initiative is enabling artisans to repair homes, pay school fees, and feed and clothe their families. The income also allows them to have access to better nutrition, improved education and healthcare.

- The Heart of Haiti collection is an array of handmade products for the home -- quilts, metalwork, ceramics, and paintings -- created by Haitian artisans. Each item is designed by a Haitian master artisan and produced by hand in Haiti from recycled materials.

- The collection is truly helping the people of Haiti rebuild their lives and communities through commerce and culture.

I am writing this post to spread the word about Heart of Haiti through a Mom Bloggers Club member program, and I may receive a Heart of Haiti pendant as a thank you. However, I am posting this because I think it is an awesome thing and more people should know it is available at Macy's!
