I received a box of happiness on my door step today! Beautiful necklaces, bracelets, earrings, jewelry pouches, ornaments and key chains made by artisans in the Haitian Apparent Project.
I love the heart behind this non-profit agency. They were made aware of the problem of child abandonment, realized that this was, in most cases, a direct effect of poverty, and set out to be a link in the chain to end that cycle! And they're doing it! They are training men and women in skills, employing them, and paying them a living wage for the work they do.
