I am a member of the Everywhere Society and Everywhere has provided me with Macy’s Heart of Haiti product to review. However, all thoughts and opinions expressed herein are my own.
Mother’s day is May 12th and every child, big or small is looking to give Mom that perfect gift. Why not surprise her with something that’s not only beautifully handcrafted but supports a wonderful cause! Macy’s is offering a line of custom, hand-made items created by local Haitian artists through their Heart of Haiti campaign. Started by artist and social entrepreneur, Willa Shalit, The Clinton Bush Haiti Fund and Macy’s; the Heart of Haiti campaign is a “Trade, Not Aid” initiate that helps to support local Haitian artists and their families. It gives them the opportunity to make a living selling their artwork and support their families. The Heart of Haiti collection at Macy’s has lead to the employment of 750 artists in Haiti and helps to provide financial benefits for an estimated 8,000 people!
We received a gorgeous, hand-cut and carved metal frame from the Heart of Haiti line and I just can’t say enough about it! I love that it’s light weight and features beautiful palm leaf accents. The frame can be either hung or stood up to display and is made from recycled steel. The photo size is 4×6 and the frame itself is 11×2. You can tell just by looking at the frame, the care and love that went into creating it!
The Heart of Haiti collection features over 40 home decor items including paper-mache vases, hand-cut metal frames, paintings, ceramics and more! All items are made almost entirely from recycled and sustainable materials such as, cardboard and local gommier wood. With Haiti being the poorest country in the western hemisphere, purchasing a gift from the Heart of Haiti collection helps to ensure that a local family is receiving the financial stability they need. Each Heart of Haiti item is a gift that truly gives back! What more could a mother want than a beautifully handmade item that gives a less fortunate family a chance at a better life.
