Celebrating @Macy's #HeartofHaiti program @heartOfHaiti

#MothersDay #TradeNotAid #GiftsThatGiveHope

The #HeartofHaiti program is inspiring me and mothers everywhere.  These women and mothers of Haiti have discovered their divine gifts of artistry, and they use those gifts to bring to life their hopes and dreams of establishing sustainable income to support their families. Macy’s continues to boost these efforts by featuring a product line of stunningly beautiful items, many created by these Haitian mothers.

I would like to show you the story of Chena Giles, who travels down the hill from her home to collect soapstone from the river, and carve it into beautiful pieces, all while her two children are at school. Here is a video that tells the story of Chena and her craft.

I recevied complimentary product.
