Heart of Haiti Is Pursuing Trade, Not Aid

 

If you like the idea of giving people a hand-up instead of a handout, then chances are you already purchase goods and services that offer a concrete benefit to the creator or service provider. Today I want to share a bit of information about Heart of Haiti products with you for this reason.

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

You can shop for Heart of Haiti products at Macy’s, a store many of us are already more than familiar with! Heart of Haiti at Macy’s: http://bit.ly/heartofhaiti

Two of my favorite pieces of many are the Heart of Haiti Botanical Tray and the pendant shown above! What is your favorite piece? 

Disclosure: I am sharing 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.
