With Mother’s Day this Sunday, it’s a time to reflect on the women that have helped you in your life. There have been many influential women in my life and one of them is my grandmother. She helped to raise me and really took the time to get to know me. Through her, I was able to learn how to be a strong, loving, and nurturing woman. Her ability to connect others and to be able to keep her strong sense of self has inspired my life. She encouraged me to take chances, follow my heart, and be an integral part of the community.
Through the “Heart of Haiti” program, we are able to help others who need it the most. From recycled oil drums and wrought iron to paper mache and stone, Haitian artisans transform some of the most unlikely materials into extraordinary art.
Proceeds from the “Heart of Haiti” purchases help provide better nutrition, improved education, and healthcare-life-changing resources for the Haitian artisans and their families.
In the “Rwanda Path to Peace” collection, exquisite works of art are handcrafted by Rwandan women. The sale of these one-of-a-kind crafts provides sustainable income to the Rwandan artisans who create them.
So, this Mother’s Day, while you are thinking of the perfect gift to give the special woman in your life, why not give her something that will give back and help other women. Help make a difference in someone else’s life!
