To all my sweet readers, you get to help some families this week!
Nouvelle Mere on Etsy is sponsoring an Apparent Project virtual party. The Apparent Project is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit organization that helps families stay together in Haiti.
Read more about the Apparent Project at their website http://www.apparentproject.org/
Did you know? Most of the orphans in Haiti still have one or both parents living? It's true. But they are orphaned because of poverty; being sent to an orphanage or to other homes because there is not enough income to support the entire family.
Here's where we can help. The Apparent Project has taught Haitians a craft that they can market, and then brings their products up to the US to sell them. And then the money gets sent back to the artisans so they can afford to keep their family together.
currently have had a box of this beautiful stuff! It is primarily jewelry, and some purses, and Christmas ornaments and decor. I encourage you to please look through the pictures and select something for a last minute gift or something just for yourself.
We'll start with the Christmas decor
and some close-ups of those items, plus prices
You are loved!
The artisans use recycled materials, such as cereal boxes to create all the beautiful items. Do you recognize these? I spy Mountain Dew, Coca Cola and Diet Coke! :)
Some more fun stuff
The mini stockings are a perfect size to hold gift cards, jewelry or many of these beautiful ornaments
And close-ups of those items
More Christmas and some jewelry
close-ups of the earrings
Some of my favorites are the metal art
And are these angels not just precious?
Being the Nativity junkie that I am, this piece is by far my favorite.
The larger bag with green lining is about the size of a laptop
These coin purses all have a divided pocket on the inside
Long necklace-bracelet sets
And lots of beautiful bracelets
Don't you just love the precious faces and stories on these tags?
This one sums up our whole project; the love of Christ for Haiti. <3
I will do my best to mark items off as sold as they are purchased.
There are duplicates of some of the ornaments, and I will leave them available until all of that style are sold out.
Items will be available until Dec 31, 2013
Thank you so much for your help with this ministry, from me and from the precious people in Haiti.
Please share this with your friends. I would love to sell as much of this as I can before I have to send it back.
