Have a Heart This Christmas

Thursday, December 22, 2016
I was gifted a product from the Macy's Heart of Haiti line however all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

Christmas.  It really is the most wonderful time of the year for me (and probably for family as well, in that I love it so much and they reap the benefits of my Holiday joy).  I've been given so much this year that I am happy to give back in anyway I can.  That's why I want to tell you about Macy's and the Heart of Haiti product line.  

After the devastating earthquake that hit Haiti in 2010, Macy's decided to sell handcrafted products from Haiti in order to help support families of skilled artisans.  This trade-not-aid initiative employs 550 artisans while benefiting an extended 4,500 family members.  Haiti has an estimated 400,000 artisans who rely solely on their handcrafted goods as a source of income.  Click here for a video that tells more about the Macy’s Heart of Haiti line. 

I love this gorgeous handcrafted metalwork snowflake ornament.  It fits perfectly with my haphazard and eclectic ornament collection.  It's nice to have a reminder on the tree that tells us how fortunate we are and that there are ways of giving at Christmas that meaningfully affect others in a positive way.  While this ornament is sold out, you can visit, as part of the Gifts that Give Hope CollectionI think I will use the lovely little soapstone heart (from the first picture above) as a paperweight in my office.  These are the perfect sustainable gifts for any Home Decor lover.
