Haiti by Hand has been organized by Rebecca Sower , and if you are a craftista with a heart to donate, please consider doing so. But this is Rebecca's story and it's best you hear it from her.
This is one of the pieces I donated to the Etsy/HaitibyHand Shop , so if you can, please saunter on over there and look around, lots of lovelies and interesting things, and every dollar goes to the relief project in Despinos Haiti. There is a price range for every budget, but before you do, read Rebeccas blog...it's an intimate, focused and brilliant way to help women of Haiti.
Please, if nothing else, try to get the word out...
When I think about how much difference a small amount of money can make to these people, it really amazes me to think how we can deeply affect and even profoundly change lives with our art.
If I stopped to count all the ways I am blessed every day, I would simply run out of day. I take too much for granted and forget how fortunate I am.
