Julie Anne With Haiti's Jewels

A while back I mentioned on here that I was supporting Haiti's Jewels. I still am and have sort of become a lunatic with the task. I have sense become a retailer for Haiti's Jewels, gotten A LOT more stuff to sell AND, because I needed a place to send people, so I don't have to carry it around in my purse all the time (it was going to be difficult what with the two hedgehogs I have in there already), so I created an online store!

 Half of my profit is going into a savings account to go towards mine and Ryan's wedding, not to mention simply by purchasing this beautiful, one of a kind jewelry you help the local economy in Haiti flourish. Haiti is the poorest country in the Americas and is one of the poorest countries in the world.

For those of you that aren't reading my constant string of spam on Facebook and aren't entirely sure what Haiti's Jewels is, allow me to enlighten you! Haiti's Jewels is a small jewelry business located in Haiti. A girl named Sophie went down after the massive earthquake and began teaching local villagers how to make one of a king jewelry out of glass, stones, shells and other materials found around their villages. Often times one employees paycheck goes to provide for 5-10 people. With this job they are able to afford simple things like uniforms for school, or a wheel chair for their dad. Haiti's Jewels is a wonderful business working hard to make a difference in the lives of many Haitian villagers!

The more you buy, the more things I can get! I have my eye on some ADORABLE wrap bracelets but I have to sell enough product to be able to get them. Unfortunately I have to buy my first order in bulk, which is going to be about $250 (up until now I have been buying things off my cousin but she doesn't have the bracelets that I want for y'all!). SOOOO get out there and share this with your friends. Facebook it, tweet it, pin it, tumble it, tattoo it on your forehead (ok, don't do that) but you get the idea! Click HERE to visit my store!

That concludes this Southern Soapbox! Thanks for reading and thank you for your support!
