Meanwhile, back in Haiti...

If you haven't checked in for a while or are new to us, then it might be news to you that we have been planning another trip to Haiti. We started a Fundly campaign to raise funds to cover some of the costs associated (something I am not used to) and came so close to our goal-God is so good!

I am so grateful and honored to know so many amazing people with such generous hearts. Thank you thank you thank you to ever one who donated or shared our post. It means so much!

We are back in Haiti this time to work with and collaborate a little with a newer company called Sa Voix. Sa Voix means Her Voice in French and they are a collective of women working together. A group of women who's spirits are weaving a beautiful tapestry as they are given the chance to have a job and provide for their lives. Currently they are four Haitian women and Jessica, the founder from Chicago. They have a beautiful spirit to their work place and each one has a bright light.

It has been a pleasure to learn about Sa Voix, the goals and dreams of the organization, and the hearts of the girls. I look forward to what will unfold over the next week and what God has in store. As always in Haiti, I am sure I will walk away having learned much more from them than vice versa.

Stay tuned, there is going to be a great foundation laid and I am exited to share it with you.

New Partnership

We have been presented with a really unique opportunity. As you know on our recent trip to Haiti we met Jessica and her girls at Sa Voix (read previous blog post). They are a group of women who are figuring business and life out together.

They hand paint their material as a form of art and expression. Then they turn their canvas into headbands, hand bags and....well that's sort of where we would like to join. We (me, Tara) are planning a trip to join the Sa Voix team this April for a few days of intensive sewing training and skill refinement.  Although the girls of Sa Voix have training in sewing. Our plan is to hone in those skills and "perfect" them a bit. We also would like to work on some fun new items (to be disclosed at a later date).

However, I can't take this trip with out your help. With Sa Voix as my umbrella, I am raising money for my April trip. Please go to our Fundly page and donate. I so appreciate your help in taking this journey with me.  I know there is a great partnership blooming with the woman at Sa-Voix as well as exciting things in the future.

Cheers.
