Haiti Heart

Posted on the 12 January 2012 by Steveliu @charitablegift

Haiti HeartToday marks the two year anniversary of the devastating Haiti earthquake. Haiti is still a nation in need of a lot of help. For the rest of the month we’ll be highlighting gifts that will help.

The Haiti Heart at UncommonGoods is a beautiful piece that was created by Haitian craftsmen through the organization Aid to Artisans. More than just giving handouts, this organization helps communities in developing countries build profitable businesses. Giving people a hand up instead of a handout can have ripple effects that help the whole country.

This piece starts with a stone purchased from local quarries in Haiti, and then is hand-carved individually. The result is a beautiful piece of art that measures 3.5″ by 3″ by 1.5″.
