I was gifted a product from the Macy’s Heart of Haiti line. However, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
This is my favorite time of year. The holidays are about family and about giving. I love to give more than receive, so Christmas is my favorite holiday.
One of my favorite things about Christmas is decorating the tree. It’s fun, and I love adding at least one new ornament every year.
The other thing a love about Christmas is giving back.
A great way to give back AND get a new ornament for your tree this holiday is by purchasing an ornament from the Macy’s Heart of Haiti line.
When you think about giving gifts this holiday season, consider giving gifts that will provide a sustainable income for those in need. See, Macy’s Heart of Haiti is not a charity, but a sustainable trade-not-aid program where artisans make 22% of the purchase price of every item sold.
Every time we make a purchase, we are making a difference. When we buy products like Macy’s Heart of Haiti, we are giving hope and employment to artists. It’s a great way to make sure our hard-earned dollars are making a difference.
I recently received two ornaments from the line… the snowflake and fir tree. Currently, the snowflake is sold out, but you can still get the fir tree for $13.00. They are beautifully handcrafted works of art, and everything from the collection would work with anyone’s home decor.
The artisans of Haiti have gone through a lot over the years, like the earthquake in 2010, and earlier this year, a hurricane, but their passion and talents haven’t been dampened.
Haiti has an estimated 400,000 artisans (out of a population of 10 million) who rely solely on their handcrafted goods as a source of income. No other sector of employment even approaches such numbers.
It’s not too late to make a difference and purchase something from the Heart of Haiti collection available at Macys.com. You will be helping to provide sustainable income to more than 550 Haitian artisans by allowing them to support their families with dignity and pride.
