Heart of Haiti is helping to rebuild Haiti through "Trade, Not Aid." This is a new way of helping. Instead of funding charity they are creating jobs for Haitian artist. Each artist can produce beautiful quilts, metalwork, ceramics, and paintings. Through the sale of Heart of Haiti products, artisans are able to earn life-changing income for themselves, their families, and their communities. This enables repairs to 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. Each item is designed by a Haitian master artisan and produced by hand in Haiti from recycled materials. This has helped employee 350 artists. You are able to purchase these items at Macys. And most are affordable in the range of $25-$60.
I am writing this post to spread the word about Heart of Haiti as a Mom Bloggers Club member I will receive a Heart of Haiti pendant as a thank you. Isn't it pretty?
