Heart of Haiti brings hope and help one year later

A year ago today the world's attention  turned to Haiti as they experienced one of the worst natural disasters of the decade.  The earthquake destroyed the infrastructure, the government and took over 300,000 lives but the enduring story is the  resilience of the Haitian people as they rebuild their beloved country.

Haitians and Haitian Americans like Tamara Louis-Jeune from Scattering Resources will tell you that Haiti is beautiful, full of natural beauty and talented artists. Heart of Haiti is a line of handmade goods that employs over 350 artists in Haiti.  Sold exclusively through Macy's and Macys.com, Heart of Haiti helps Haiti help themselves by sharing their artwork with the world.
