The Gift of Giving: Heart of Haiti Campaign

 
"Give a man a fish, he eats for a day.  Teach a man to fish, he eats for a lifetime."

Heart of Haiti is helping to rebuild Haiti through "Trade, Not Aid." In other words, Heart of Haiti is using commerce and
culture to create social change.
 
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.
 
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.

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 and each item is designed by a master Haitian artist and made by hand in Haiti.

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