Heart of Haiti Campaign

2010 was a destructive year for natural disasters. Wildfires, landslides, floods, blizzards and earthquakes to name a few, but none was more shocking than the very first natural disaster experienced by the people of Haiti. In January 2010, Haitians suffered through a 7.0 magnitude earthquake that collapsed many of their buildings and killed more than 250,000 people. Two years later, the tiny country is still struggling to rebuild what was left of their home with the help of funds given by world governments.

But how can we help? Macy’s, along with social entrepreneur Willa Shalit and the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund, have launched the Heart of Haiti campaign.This campaign helps support Haitian artisans by providing jobs to feed their families and pay for their children’s education. By simply purchasing one of their more than 40 handcrafted home decor items, financial benefits are given to an estimated 1,500 people of Haiti. The collection features items that were made by recycled and sustainable materials. Eco friendly is always a plus!

Now head over to your local Macy’s and help support a great cause by shopping! Easy as that!
