heart_of_haitiWe have a special giveaway underway that we hope will remind you each time you see the prize just how fortunate you are and how everyone can still help Haiti a year after the devastating earthquake. Remember the scenes of sheer destruction and heartbreak? They are impossible for me to forget. I cannot imagine enduring what the people of this tiny country have survived and am eager to do anything at all to help them.

There are simple ways we can help the people of Haiti rebuild, including purchasing items that are part of Macy’s line ‘Heart of Haiti’. These items are created by artisans of Haiti, people who can take the money they earn and use it to rebuild homes, schools, and so much more. They are beautiful, hand-made, and so incredibly valuable. Take a look at the line and then come back here and tell us what item you like best! We will award one pretty potholder created by an artisan in Haiti (with the artist’s name embroidered in it), along with a cookbook from Macy’s, to one winner drawn at random on January 22nd. You have until midnight EST on January 21st to enter.
