Haiti Needs Your Help!

14th January, 2010 - Posted by Derek Hines - No Comments

We are all devastated to learn of the tragedy unfolding in Haiti and we want to help. Global Exchange’s Fair Trade Stores (see locations below) and our online store (www.globalexchangestore.org) will be donating 10% of our total sales for the week of January 16th to the 22nd to Beyond Borders, one of our partner organizations that is dedicated to improving the living standards of artists, their families and their communities in Haiti. Beyond Borders has people on the ground in Haiti at this moment and will be able to provide immediate relief for these people in their time of need.

Global Exchange carries a number of beautiful Metal Art pieces created by the Beyond Borders artisans. Each of these pieces has a unique story to tell, as they are actually made from discarded 55-gallon oil barrels. Using only a hammer and nail, the artist creates these incredible works of art. Once finished, each sculpture is signed by the artist. You can own a piece of Haiti and at the same time help this decimated country.
