Hello Lovelies & Happy Holidays
I received this lovely handcrafted Heart of Haiti Star from the #CleverHaiti campaign and want to share with you who are the stars in my life.
The stars of my life will always be my children. I’m so thankful and blessed to have such wonderful kids. They are my world and my everything. It’s amazing to see them grow right before my eyes and I look forward to what’s in store for their future. Through all the craziness I wouldn’t trade them for the world. They are my motivation and what keeps me going each and every day. They bring me such joy and are my little blessings! Who are the stars in your life?
Purchasing items from Macy’s Heart of Haiti is an easy way to contribute to the Haitian community, which now in light of Hurricane Sandy, needs our help more than ever. Macy’s Heart of Haiti upholds the belief that “trade not aid” is a powerful way to create sustainable work and much needed financial opportunities. Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere and despite the devastating earthquake people there are filled with hope and a desire to improve their lives through employment.
The initiative allows opportunities for the artists to work with US designers, helping strengthen international artisan relationships and making their products viable in the US market. The Heart of Haiti campaign pays in excess of fair wage to the talented artisans who create the product, giving them the dignity of work and economic self-determination.
The Heart of Haiti collection features more than 40 home decor items including quilts, metalwork, jewelry and paintings all made almost entirely from recycled and sustainable items such as old cement bags, cardboard, oil drums and local gommier wood. (Note: The star that I received was specially made for #CleverHaiti bloggers and are not available on the Macy’s site)
I was selected for this opportunity as a member of Clever Girls Collective, and the content and opinions expressed here are all my own. #CleverHaiti
