Hi Chen,

This summer I had the pleasure of visiting Haiti with Martha Stewart.

Martha was there with fashion designer Rachel Roy and Macy’s Chairman and CEO Terry Lundgren. They came together to meet with artisans, share product development ideas, and witness the creativity driving Haiti’s reconstruction.

Artisans help fuel the Haitian economy as they generate income by linking Haiti’s unique crafts culture to international markets. The Clinton Bush Haiti Fund has contributed over $1 million to support this commerce, including a new $535,876 grant announced this month to the HAND/EYE Fund, an organization that, in partnership with Fairwinds Trading and Haitian artisan cooperatives, connects artisan groups to U.S. markets.

Learn more about HAND/EYE, and the important work they are doing to help Haiti build a sustainable future:

From exploring the renowned artisan town of Croix-des-Bouquets with Fairwinds Trading Creative Director Juliana Um, to meeting with metal artist Serge Jolimeau, Martha, Terry and Rachel had a chance to speak to people working every day to make a better life for all Haitians.

Our team also took part in a very productive meeting with Haitian President Michel Martelly to discuss the value of Haitian artisans and the importance of investment in Haiti’s private sector.

The Clinton Bush Haiti Fund is investing in HAND/EYE and Fairwinds Trading because we recognize the need for long-term rebuilding, especially in once-thriving industries. These programs help thousands of Haitians secure employment and sell their beautiful goods all over the world. We will continue to invest in organizations like them to help small businesses in Haiti grow.

Take a look at the work HAND/EYE is doing in Haiti:

As we help Haitians work toward a more prosperous future, we remember: Wè jodi-a, men sonje denmen, see today, but think about tomorrow.

Avèk mesi anpil, with many thanks, for your support of our work.
