My recent shout out for some help in gathering school supplies for Haitian children was heard and responded to by several generous souls. Thank You. The help that you give to any Haitian child can truly turn a life around — or even save it.

A lovely Mommy named Susan (Mommy to 4 Haitian sweeties) sent a generous donation in order for me to purchase denim fabrics to sew up as many school bags as possible. Thank You.

Another Mommy, “WoodSpriteMama“, is contributing half of all her July’s handmade goods sales to the cause as well. Check out some of her goods here and here. They are wonderful! I have purchased several items from her over the past couple of years, and they are so well made and thoughtful. Thank You.

Others of you have made purchases from my Etsy store in order to contribute to Haitian Roots. I hope you enjoy them. Thank You.

Generosity is so amazing … as the giver finds even more pleasure in giving, than the receiver does in receiving. This has been scientifically studied … and in my opinion, is one of the most beautiful attributes of the human condition. I am thankful for the generosity that so many of you have shown, and hope that you are rewarded with a glad heart.
