Hearts for Haiti the Handmade Way

When tragedy like the earthquake in Haiti strikes we often wonder, “How can I ease their pain? How can I help?”  Here’s one small way you can help those in crisis, and help yourself to some wonderful handmade items at the same time!  Sounds like a winner to us!

What is Hearts for Haiti, and what does it have to do with me?  HeartsforHaiti.etsy.com is an Etsy shop run by volunteers, stocked with donated items; where all the money raised by sales will be used to rebuild Haiti.  Proceeds of sales go to the charitable organization, Doctors Without Borders.

Literally hundreds of Etsy sellers have banded together and donated their products and shipping costs toward this timely cause.  You can help by purchasing any item in Hearts for Haiti; you’ll be amazed by the diversity of products–there is truly something for everyone with nearly 1,000 item listings (and growing all the time)!

The huge bonus for you–all of the Sellers are donating shipping costs which means (in most cases) there is FREE Worldwide Shipping!  (Please check the item listing as some Seller’s have geographic limitations on their free shipping!)

If you’ve been wanting to either try or add to your collection of handmade items–now is the time to buy!  Feel great about contributing to an overwhelming need in Haiti while enjoying quality, timeless creations made with love.

The pictures in this post are of three boutique bows made by Fruits of the Bloom and donated to Hearts for Haiti.  Each image requires only a click to view more pictures and information on the particular bow in question.  The first bow pictured, Caitlin’s Pink Rose Boutique Bow, was named after my daughter, Caitlin.  This particular color pink reminds me of her blonde baby days when she wore bows much like this handmade by her mama!  These bows have been created specifically for Hearts for Haiti and do not appear in Fruits of the Bloom.

It would make my heart happy if you would click on the images in this post, look at our bows, heart them, and consider buying one to wrap up your favorite girl…all while helping out the Haitian’s!  Please spread the word to your friends who love handmade items!  I have faith in your generosity!

Wishing the Haitians Brighter Days,

Loren & Caitlin
