Nine months after the Haiti tragedy, it’s easy to forget that the country is still trying to rebuild.
Thank God Macy’s has remembered.
The store has launched “The Heart of Haiti” – which will bring trade and aid to the island through a program for selling traditional Haitian artisan home décor products.
Starting in October, the collection, inspired by the courage and culture of the Haitian people and created by Haitian artisan survivors, will be available in 25 Macy’s stores and on macys.com.
Macy’s says that already, monies are being sent to Haitian artisans to buy needed materials to return to work, and more than 200 artisans are at work full-time.
