It’s hard to believe that it’s been over 2 years since the earthquake in Haiti. This month has been abuzz with news and reports about post-earthquake relief efforts in Haiti. There has been a lot of work done but still so much more to do.
Our team has also been beginning to lay groundwork for our own expansion into Haiti to develop our candle-making entrepreneurship model for Haitian women. We’ll keep you posted on this as it develops. It’s keeping us busy!
In the meantime, if you want to support the renewal and rebuilding of Haiti, supporting Haitian artisans and businesswomen is a great way to do it! As you might know, we have a number of beautiful products from Haiti that help Haitians rebuild their lives.
A Brighter Future Candle & Plate
This beautiful candle set brings together a handmade Haitian recycled steel drum candle stand – with a beautifully hammered design, with an Iraqi made pillar candle adorned by a pressed flower artist in the United States. 10% of the retail price is donated to Partners In Health, an organization that provides preferential health services to the poor and has been working in Haiti since 1985. We are proud to support their work.
What better way to light up a dark winter night but with a long-lasting pillar candle that illuminates the beauty of the Haitian candle stand?
Light from Darkness, Candle and Set
This beautiful hand-hammered luminary and pillar candle make a beautiful gift and add so much elegance to a room. And, like all of our gifts, this one helps change women’s lives. The luminary is designed by a woman artisan in Haiti who is employing many others to create these stunning candle accessories. And the pillar candle is made by women in Iraq.
Peace and Prosperity Basket
This beautiful gift set has a huge amount of impact around the world, Haiti included. 10% of this gift is donated to our friends at the Preemptive Love Coalition, which works to provide children with life-saving heart surgeries throughout Iraq.
The beautiful (and fragrant!) vetiver basket is handcrafted by artisans in Haiti, the soaps are handmade in Afghanistan and the pillar candle is made by women entrepreneurs in Iraq.
As we round the 2 year anniversary of Haiti, we encourage you to stand with Haiti by supporting economic opportunity for Haitians! Click here to see our entire product collection of gifts that change lives.
