Easy way to help a great organization!

March 27, 2009 at 9:19 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment

I recently wrote a blog about my favorite purse and where it came from. There is a great organization in Haiti that is changing women’s lives one at a time. Here is a small glimpse of what they do from their website:

“Each week over 100 women come through our center as part of our various programs.  These women live day to day just trying to make it through and feed their children.  Many are just trying to survive.  Our program changes that.  Women who have never earned a dollar in their lives are now earning money as they sew.  Women who had no parenting skills are now taking better care of their children.  Women who could not read and write are now learning to.  Women who have had no prenatal care are getting the attention they so desperately need.  Women light up when they hear the sound of their baby’s heartbeat for the first time.”

These women are learning to sew and selling these great purses!

Here are 2 ways you could help….

1.) You could throw a purse party and help sell these great purses! Go here to sign up!

2.) You could also help us gather fabric and thread! Here is what they need:

“we can always use thread and fabric…..we are in need of light weight upholstry fabric with matching contrasting fabrics.  We like to have the fabric in atleast three yards or more.  For thread we need heavy duty threads (quilting) in every color you can think of….JoAnn’s has 99 cent thread.  They don’t keep it with the “good” stuff…I have had to ask for it when I am looking for it.”

I would love to be able to send a ton of supplies to these women. Does anyone have any of these supplies that they could donate? Does anyone have coupons to fabric stores that we could use? I and several other women are going to start collecting from anyone who wants to give! Can you help us get the word out? If you would like to give items please email me at marisjbush@gmail.com.

Thanks for all your help!

oh yes and this is a picture of my purse that I love so much!

  1. I live in Haiti and have gotten to know the ladies at Heartline a bit. This is a fabulous ministry and I would really love to encourage anyone interested, even just a little bit, to check it out and get involved. The purses are great, just like you’ve shared Maris. I’ve had opportunity to see the ladies at work on them and like to check out the new stock each time I visit. They would make fabulous gifts for friends and family (think Christmas!) and are reasonably priced.
    Thanks for sharing!
