We are finally able to take a breath and put a call out for you creative souls to join our efforts. I have been floored by how many of you have contacted me to offer your help. Many of you have said that you don't have a lot of cash to send but that you would be willing to donate an item to sell in the Haiti By Hand etsy shop.
And now we'll take you up on that!
We are looking for art pieces, handcrafted items, original patterns, kits or downloadable instructions that you are willing to contribute to Haiti By Hand.
Just as a reminder, Haiti By Hand is an artisan group forming in Despinos, Haiti. Donations to this group of women (many single moms) will go directly to empowering these women to bring in their own income to provide for their children and families. You are helping in a very tangible way to transform a life when you contribute.
OR you may want to send funds directly to the medical clinic at Haiti Gospel Mission. They are set up to accept paypal donations, and no amount is too small. The area of Despinos (10 miles from Port-au-Prince) is in need of food and water. If your church or group would like to learn how you can get actual supplies to them, please email me and I will provide the details I have been given.
Okay, so let's not grow weary in doing well. If you want to contribute items for the HBH etsy shop, email me. If you want to find out how to get items down to Despinos, email me.
EMAIL ADDRESS: firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm expecting a full inbox by day's end :) (have I told you lately how much I love you?)
grace & peace,
Oh! and don't forget to "priye pou Ayiti" (pray for Haiti).
