Craft Hope for Haiti Pillow

I had this great idea today. I did some Googling and of course, someone has already done it! Haiti Peace Quilts

A combination of quilting and helping the people of Haiti, in Haiti.

P.S. Pink Chalk fabrics blog had a GREAT post on some medical mission relief work in Haiti with links to very graphic photos that really brought home the reality of what survival is like for the Haitian people.

CraftHope and Haiti

Haitian Girl

**NOTE*** A better version of my movie can be seen HERE

I visited Haiti in 1987 and sponsored a Compassion child for several years after until she pulled out of the program. All my photos from the trip were slides and this weekend I scanned them all so I have digital copies and made this slide show.

I was visiting the founder of the W.I.S.H. (West Indies Self Help) mission, Tony Wolf, who was working on the Island of La Gonave. Tony passed away many years ago but the mission is still there.

Please visit the CraftHope Etsy shop. Some wonderful women have coordinated the shop and 100% of the proceeds are going to Doctors without Borders for the Haiti crisis. I listed a quilt last night and it sold for $100 which can do so much good right now.
