Hello all you beautiful souls! Both Thursday and Friday were busy days for me. So, I did not get a chance to write a Friday post. But today I'm coming to you with a cause that is very close to my heart, the Macy's heart of Haiti campaign. This campaign started about 5 years ago, but it took me a while to get on board. Hard to believe because I grew up in Haiti, and not too long ago, I could not imagine myself adopting another culture. Our culture is who we are, what we grew up eating, breathing, and dancing to. I was not born with a silver spoon in my mouth, but I grew up loving music, beautiful art prints, and nature. I grew up hoping for a better future for my country.
In 1998, I left Haiti to come live with my mom. Things were bad when I left. But in 2010, things got really worst and Haiti has not been the same since. After Haiti was hit by the 2010 earthquake that left the country paralyzed, Macy's took the initiative to help haiti by bringing handcrafted products from Haiti to be sold in the US . Those products were created by very talented entrepreneurs with a passion for art and everything beautiful. Each product represents our way of life. But what's more important is that every time you buy one product, you will help an auntie send her niece to school. Some children were left without a mom, a dad, or both parents. Your purchase can help these kids, too. As you shop for holiday presents this year, think about giving the gift of hope to Haiti. Hope for a better future for every child!
Thanks for your support, always!
