In this time of year where we are all scurrying around trying to find the perfect gift, video game, or sweater for our loved ones, we should pause and take note of those just trying to survive.
Please take a moment to read about Hearts of Haiti below:
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.
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.
Each item is designed by a master Haitian artist and made by hand in Haiti and is made from recycled materials. The collection includes 40 different home decor items and accessories. Products include vases, candleholders, serving trays, picture frames, mirrors, coasters, necklaces, clutch purses and more.
And most items fall in the very affordable $25-$60 range.

**Disclosure: I am writing this post as a way to spread the word about Heart of Haiti through a Mom Bloggers Club member program. I will receive a Heart of Haiti pendant as a thank you fro my participation.**
