Heart of Haiti

It’s hard to believe tomorrow marks one year since the devastating earthquake struck Haiti.  Whenever these awful natural disasters happen, I am always struck by how our country comes together to help those in need.  It is amazing to me that people from all walks of life can, for a few weeks or months, all work together for a common cause.

The people of Haiti have begun to rebuild, but they still need our help.

Enter: Heart of Haiti

Heart of Haiti is an initiative founded by Willa Shalit and FairWinds Trading, along with a partnership with Macy’s, that will provide an artisan’s family with nutrition, education for their children, and bring access to healthcare and dignity.

Basically, FairWinds Trading connects people, especially women, who make goods with people who will buy those goods.

This bowl is one of the many items available.  I am absolutely in love with this bowl.  And at only $16, it will soon be gracing my dining room table.

This is one of the most unique jewelry hangers I have ever seen, and I adore it.  I don’t have enough jewelry to require a jewelry hanger, but if I did, I would buy this in a heartbeat.  And it’s only $35.  That makes me want to buy it even though I don’t need it.

You can see all of the items in the Heart of Haiti campaign here.  Go.  Take a look.  And remember that your shopping spree is helping save the people of Haiti.

I was selected for this very special “CleverHaiti” opportunity by Clever Girls Collective, which endorses Blog With Integrity. All opinions are my own.
