SO Excited

We are working on some exciting things here at Artists For Hope. In a week I will be flying to Haiti, for many reasons, but one of them being that we are hoping to start an art co-op in the mountains of Haiti where the Rescue Center is located. One of the things that impacted us the most while we were in Haiti was the lack of jobs. That lack of jobs leads to the horrible cycle of poverty that results in starving kids and we don't want to stand by and just watch the cycle continue.

We will be teaching some women a few simple art ideas to begin with and then we'll continue to teach more projects in the future. We're really excited about being able to provide some women with much needed income and we'll be posting from Haiti to share about this and those sweet kids that are living at the Rescue Center and fighting to get better.

We'll be looking for different venues to sell the items made in Haiti, so please let us know if you have some great ideas for us! Continue to spread the word and let's help even more kids (and women!) in Cazale.
