The Christmas season is the time of year, when we gather together with our family and friends to celebrate a year of health, to reconnect and show our love by giving gifts. Most importantly, it is the time of year where we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. He bestowed love and kindness upon everyone who knew him and by his death on the cross, his kindness has saved all of us from a death of sin. As Christians, we should show this same compassion to those around us.
While reflecting on ways that I could do this, the opportunity arose for me to work with Macy’s and their Heart of Haiti line. This line is not a charity. Macy’s has created a fair trade partnership between US designers and third-world artisans, like those living in Haiti. This trade not aid program provides the buyer with beautiful, handmade home decor, while the artisan receives 22% of the sales from these products. This gives them the opportunity to use their trade to gain a sustainable income, so that they can provide for their families. It truly is a wonderful cause that I am so thankful to be able to support this year! In case you also want to purchase a gift that keeps on giving, I have linked some of my other favorites from the line below! 🙂

use code “GIFT” for 15% off at Macy’s through December 23rd + get 3% cash back through Ebates
Christmas is a time for giving, but also a great time to give back to great causes around the world. The Macy’s Heart of Haiti line is a great way to do that. Other fair trade product lines include NOVICA (4% cash back on Ebates), Connected Artisans and Ten Thousand Villages.
Thank you for reading. I hope you all have a merry Christmas!
