Convoy of Hope in Haiti

A word about Haiti and Convoy of Hope

Just as you, my heart is broken at the horror and pain that the people of Haiti are suffering following the devastating earthquake on January 12th. I want to jump on a plane and rush down there to help in any way possible. But I cannot. However, I can help in other ways.

When Hurricane Katrina hit the shores of Louisiana, I had the opportunity to work with the Convoy of Hope to help feed and meet the needs of people, who had also lost everything, in St. Tammany parish. Never have I been so impressed with an organization! They are on the ground, face to face, feeding the hungry and homeless and meeting their needs. I grieved when it was time for me to return to my air conditioned home, hot showers and pantry of food.

The Convoy of Hope was already in Haiti and had just restocked all their supplies, two weeks before the earthquake hit. God had prepared them to be ready in an instant! I can’t go to Haiti, but I can give my time and money in other ways; for the entire month of February, I will be donating 75% of my profits to the Convoy of Hope. Any in stock ornament purchased from my website as well as brand new ornaments are included in this pledge.

Together we can go the extra mile for those in Haiti who desperately need our help.
