Haiti by Hand Auction

Rebecca Sower is doing a remarkable job of collecting items from artists and selling them in an auction site. She has relationships with several artists in Haiti and was visiting with them the week before the earthquake. All proceeds from the auction go to helping these women get back on their feet. You can read about some of the women here.

I was talking with my friend Mary last night, and she had had a conversation with a pastor who had arrived in Haiti to work with his denomination’s orphanages on the Monday before earthquake. He stayed to help until just a few days ago. He says there is so much we don’t see on our news, primarily the resiliency of the people. With just a little help to individuals, we can make a huge difference in their lives.

I have a quilt in the auction, Hope of Spring, but there are many other beautiful things for sale. The auction begins at noon CST on Friday, January 29 and runs through noon CST on February 12. Please consider bidding on the auction items or make a direct purchase through the Haiti by Hand Etsy shop.
