Heart of Haiti - Make A Difference This Holiday Season

With the holiday season upon us, we often get caught up in the holiday happiness that surrounds only our family and friends.  We don't do it on purpose, but we often forget about those who are less fortunate than we are.  I'd love to share with you a little information about the Heart of Haiti collection at Macy's.

"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 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.  Most items fall in the $25-$60 range."  At that price, they make a beautiful and affordable gift this holiday season.

With a big heart, the spirit of giving and the gift of thinking about others, we call can make a difference this holiday season.

**I am writing this post to help spread the word about Heart of Haiti through a Mom Bloggers Club member program and that I will receive a Heart of Haiti pendant as a thank you.
