My Holiday Star

Thank you to Macy’s Heart of Haiti for providing product to inspire this post about the stars in my life.

With the holiday season upon us, we're all thinking about the people who are important to us. We all have stars in our lives. Those special people who are always there for you, comfort you, and know you better than anyone. To me, this person is Jeremy. Even though he has only been in my life a relatively short time, I honestly cannot imagine life without him.

He is an example. He is the example of the person I strive to be. Someone who puts others first. He cares about everyone he knows and even people he doesn't know. Even his job revolves around helping others. This holiday season, I want him to know that he is my star. I admire him.

During the holidays, we suddenly become mindful of giving and helping others. We attempt to give handmade and meaningful gifts. I am truly honored that I had the opportunity to receive this amazing star ornament that was made by an artist in Haiti. When I first heard about this special Macy's Heart of Haiti campaign, I knew this was something special. Macy's currently has a collection of over 40 home decor items made from recycled materials. When you purchase an item through Macy's Heart of Haiti, you are contributing to the Haitian community. Macy's Heart of Haiti wholeheartedly believes that "trade not aid" is a powerful way to provide work and much needed financial opportunities to those in Haiti. I mean, isn't that awesome?!

Take a moment to browse through some of the products they offer, maybe you'll even find some last minute Christmas gifts!  

I received exclusive product from the Macy’s Heart of Haiti line that inspired this post. I was selected for this opportunity as a member of Clever Girls Collective, and the content and opinions expressed here are all my own. #CleverHaiti

  2. We have a huge beautiful candle holder from Heart of Haiti. It's just beautiful! It's such a great program, everything is so pretty and you just feel good buying it!

  3. I haven't heard of this! I'm a Canadian reader, so we don't have a Macy's close to us. Wish we did!
