Shop for Haiti
Yesterday I was introduced to a lovely shop, Collaborations.etsy.com,
that donates all its proceeds to Haiti, and thought the story was well worth sharing, and their shop worth visiting! Here's what's going into the beautiful jewelry pictured:
"My husband and I have recently been very compelled to find a way to impact our world. We became very interested in clean fresh drinking water, especially for children.
'Coincidentally', we also reconnected with an old friend who had begun a ministry in Haiti and had started a well project in conjunction with that ministry, that is dedicated to providing easy access to clean, fresh drinking water for schools, churches, and surrounding neighborhoods in Haiti.
And then, on top of that, we also became very interested in creating beaded jewelry and found ourselves inundated with necklaces and bracelets that needed homes."
So if you are looking for a beautiful, handcrafted gift, here's an opportunity to give twice :)
