Macys Heart of Haiti Bracelet

Heart of Haiti

Something amazing is going on at Macy’s. Lives are  being changed while we are out shopping. It’s all happening because of Heart of Haiti.  Launched by artist and social entrepreneur, Willa Shalit, along with The Clinton Bush Haiti Fund and Macy’s, the Heart of Haiti initiative provides opportunities for people in Haiti to feed their families and send their children to school. Macy's Heart of Haiti So why does this matter? Because Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Still, there are many people living there that want to improve their lives through employment. 750 Haitian artists have been employed through The Heart of Haiti collection. The financial benefits reach about 5,000 people! Heart of Haiti is a way to make a difference while out shopping at Macy’s. Macy's Heart of Haiti Jewelry Horn Stretch Bracelet

Horn Stretch Bracelet

That gorgeous bracelet in the photo is just one piece in the collection of over 40 items. The collection includes pieces made from recycled and sustainable items. Some of the items used include old cement bags, cardboard, and oil drums. I never imagined that a such a gorgeous bracelet could come from cow horns.

The horns that are used for this bracelet only come from animals used for consumption.

The Horn Stretch Bracelet is black and white, making it a very neutral option when it comes to jewelry. I don’t wear much jewelry besides my wedding ring but I really liked this bracelet. The chunky design was extremely appealing to me visually.

I also love the stretch feature! It means I don’t have to spend time battling any clasps or closures. Of course, it means W can snap the bracelet on my arm. But I put a stop to that fairly quickly! I also wash my hands many times a day while at work. It’s great that the bracelet can be slipped right off when I’m at the sink with my students!

As you know, I’m a t-shirt and jeans girl. This bracelet is a great way to dress up a nice black t-shirt and jeans. Add some cute shoes and I’m ready for date night with J!

  23. When I shop I like to know that the clothing is made fair trade, organic, and/or in the US. I think it’s important to know what you’re supporting

  29. krista grandstaff says:

    I love the bracelet…but I love the cause more. I have a bracelet from Heart of Haiti that I wear often, and every time I receive numerous comments and compliments on it.. and every time, I tell people what is behind the bracelet…maybe I’m enlightening a few…who knows…

  30. The main way I make a difference when I shop is to buy second hand. Most of the thrift stores support charities and it also helps the environment by re-using resources.

  31. willis flanagan says:

    I try to buy made in America so we can have more jobs here.

  32. I love buying stuff that gives some or all of the proceeds to a charity or organization. It makes me feel like I’m not wasting my money on something frivilous.

  36. Mary Dailey says:

    I love that these women are able to make a good living to provide for their families and build their self-esteem.

  37. Not honestly sure I make a difference when I shop. I tend to gravitate towards the cheapest possible products, which usually means they were not made as ethically as possible.

  39. Jennifer Johansen says:

    I prefer to buy from garage sales and estate sales. I’m saving money by not paying full price, saving used items from going to the landfill, and putting cash directly back into my local economy.
