A few months ago I asked my husband if he would be open to our spending our vacation in Haiti. We would be traveling with the Bloggers for Haiti contingent, which was funded in part by a grant from the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund and a scholarship from Everywhere to help defray the cost of the trip. Our goal was to visit Haiti after the disastrous earthquake, learn about Haiti's Artisan Business Network and see what we could do to help. What we did not anticipate was how profoundly the people and beauty of Haiti would affect us, having a transformational impact on our lives.
Together, Bloggers for Haiti will be launching a campaign to contribute to their cause. I will share more information as soon as it is available. I hope you will consider helping these strong, resilient and inspiring women make a better life for themselves and their children.
