Raising Awareness For Heart of Haiti

Have you heard of Heart Of Haiti? No? Well, go check out the site because it’s an phenomenal way to purchase beautiful gifts to give this holiday season, but also a way to help rebuild Haiti through “Trade, Not Aid.” In other words, Heart of Haiti is using commerce and culture to create social change. Pretty amazing, right?

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 these 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. Most items fall in the $25-$60 range.

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

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!

So why are you still here? Go check out the Heart of Haiti collection and make a purchase. You can buy a gift and help rebuild a country at the same time…how often do you do that?!

And so it goes…

I am writing this post to spread the word about Heart of Haiti through a Mom Bloggers Club member program and I will receive a Heart of Haiti pendant as a thank you, which I plan to give as a gift to someone that will really appreciate it.
