Macy’s Heart of Haiti 5 Year Anniversary!
This is the time of year that everyone wants to help others. And since today is #GivingTuesday, the day for giving back, I found it the perfect time to share about Macy’s Heart of Haiti campaign, Gifts That Give Hope. Everyone remembers Macy’s form “Miracle on 34th Street” and if you have never seen, add to your list this year along with one of Heart of Haiti’s items.
I received the Tobacco Leaf Tray which is handmade with a papier mache technique with raw materials in Jacmel – a beautiful coastal town in Haiti. The tray is so beautiful and I love to just display it on my end table. Everyone that comes over, comments on it and I hate to even use it because of it’s beauty.
Coming on January 12, 2015, it will be Macy’s Heart of Haiti 5 year anniversary since the catastrophic damage of the devastating earthquake that had hit Haiti. You don’t realize how lucky you are until you have lost everything.
The people of Haiti are able to create these beautiful items with things they have found around them, like paper, cement and tobacco leaves. With talent like that, their items should be showcased and Macy’s is fortunate to have found and sell the handmade items. Macy’s has employed 400 thankful Haitian artisans to date and has benefited 3,000 members of their extended families with sustainable income.
They launched a product line for sale at Macys.com and in stores (listed below):
- Macy’s Herald Square, Brooklyn Downtown, Metro Center, Chicago State Street, Northland Center, Seattle Downtown, Portland Downtown, San Francisco Union Square, Biltmore Fashion Park, South Coast Plaza Home, Mission Valley Home, Dallas Galleria, Lenox Square Mall, and Dadeland Mall.
The Tobacco Leaf Tray makes a great and unique Christmas gift and probably something they don’t have. Plus, you will be helping someone in return. They also have other beautiful items as candle sticks, picture frames, vases and more.
