    We recently just had our wedding in Punta Cana, and as a nurse, I felt strongly about helping Haiti any way we could. In our prewedding package, I asked my guest to bring something to donate to Haiti. I spoke with the wedding coordinator and she was very touched that we wanted to help out seeing how alot of the workers had family in Haiti. Mamy guests brought clothes, some books, toys, ect. and it felt good to help out even if it was in a small way.

      Hi Nadia.

      I arranged everything through a family friend based in Haiti but I know that she ordered the crafts from a store called "Kay Atizan" which is owned by a woman named Simone Ambroise who deals directly with local artisans. I found this website for them: Kay Atizan It's in French but there are pictures and I know that Simone speaks English.

      I will get her contact information from my friend and post it as soon as I have it.

      Cheers,
      Meli

                  This is such a fantastic idea. I can incorporate into my own wedding by using items like these to show my Haitian culture to our guests! Thx.[/COLOR]

                      That is a wonderful idea, and so thoughtful. I always like it when people make a donation in lieu of a favor, and this is along the same lines.
