I recently learned about Heart of Haiti, a project that supports Haitian artisans and their families and communities that are suffering after last year's devastating earthquake.
To be completely honest, I'm really glad to see the support efforts continuing. I think it's so easy, especially with today's short attention spans, to just move on to the next thing and forget the devastation that occurred and the people that are still hurting. What I love about Heart of Haiti and projects like it is that it gives each one of us another way of showing our support. Not everyone could serve in Haiti, not everyone had money they could donate at the time – and many people wanted to do both – I know I did!
You've got to check out the amazing stuff these artists have created. I love it: http://bit.ly/HeartofHaiti-ShopforABetterWorld
These are a couple of my favorite things:
There's lots of great stuff of the site to check out. If you've got some birthday shopping to do, want to get a heads up on Valentine's Day, or are attending a housewarming party any time soon, why not get a great unique gift and give back at the same time. (And if you feel like buying me those napkin rings, you know, just because, I will totally accept them)
