I love my Heart of Haiti Holiday Star! It’s beautiful and I think it looks wonderful on my tree. It’s perfect for the STAR of my life, my wonderful husband.
I was so happy to be selected to receive one. I also love the cause behind the Heart of Haiti collection at Macy’s. Purchasing one of the handcrafted pieces in the Heart of Haiti collection directly benefits the Haiti artisans and their families. The artisans receive half the wholesale price for each piece sold in the collection.
Have you seen the collection? It is full of gorgeous handcrafted pieces. Pieces like…
These gorgeous Spice Nesting Trays
This lovely Haiti Teardrop Vase
Beautiful handcraft jewelry
and this lovely Hearts picture frame.
There is so much more to see, you’ll have to go have a look. 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. 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 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. These gorgeous Holiday Stars were designed just for us. Isn’t that so special? Ya know what else is really special? I was given an extra Heart of Haiti Holiday Star to give away to someone special. I thought that it would be nice to give it to one of you!
Now, I know it’s after Christmas. Myself and my laptop have been very sick for the past few weeks (I talked all about that in this I’M BAAACK post here) and the Clever Girls Collective was so incredibly nice and gave me an extension to work on this post. So, with it being after Christmas I thought that the Heart of Haiti Holiday Star would make a nice Happy New Year gift?
So, if you would love one of these GORGEOUS Heart of Haiti Holiday Stars for yourself or maybe to give to a special star in your life just leave me a comment below. That’s it! I’ll pick a winner in one week from today. Remember too, that these beautiful Haiti Holiday Stars were designed just for us, you can not buy one.
