Gifts that Give Hope: Heart of Haiti

In the News

Disclosure: I am a member of the Everywhere Society and Everywhere has provided me with a product for review for this post. However, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

On January 12, 2010 the country of Haiti suffered horrific damage from an earthquake. “Haiti’s earthquake was a 7.0 magnitude on the Richter Scale; injuring 300k+, leaving 250k+ dead and leaving 1M+ homeless.” Five years later the country is still recovering. Thru the Heart of Haiti program and consumers can purchase gifts that give hope. I’m happy and excited to share what I have learned about the Heart of Haiti program and how you can get a piece of Haitian art for yourself.

But first I’d love for you to watch this video that tells you more about the Heart of Haiti .

“Heart of Haiti was started by social entrepreneur, Willa Shalit, Macy’s and the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund in 2010.”

I received a set of the Heart of Haiti Erzulie set of cocktail napkins. The napkins are just beautiful. The linen is so soft and the needlepoint skill is amazing. Each of the napkins is handmade so they are all originals. These are definitely items that I will treasure and share with all of my houseguests. I’m still not sure where I will use them but I definitely want to frame one of the napkins. Red is my favorite color and I love hearts.
