HELPING HANDS: Handmade in Haiti by the Comite Artisanal Haitian, these colorful Flower Votive Holders represent a long-standing artistic tradition. By transforming steel oil drums into distinctive decorative pieces, this cooperation of 170 artists not only repurposes items which would otherwise become waste, but it contributes to the well-being of the country as a whole. Half the profits from your purchase of these unusually beautiful works will go toward Partners in Health and Americares. Sounds like a great reason to buy two – one to keep and one to share.
