Bònn fèt dè mè!




Sunday, May 29, 2011
Guess what?  I just found out from Heart of Haiti that today is Mothers Day in Haiti. How cool is that?  Bònn fèt dè mè!

According to HaitianTreasures.com, Mothers’ Day is celebrated in Haiti on the last Sunday of May. On that day, Haitians honor their mothers by wearing a red flower if the mothers are alive and a white or purple one if they are deceased.

As an ambassador for Heart of Haiti, I encourage you to consider not only the joy of the day, but the pain that today will likely bring for those in Haiti that might have lost a mother to the devastating earthquake or the unfortunate results of poverty.  As you know, loss and pain know no boundaries.

So kindly take a moment to add Haiti to your prayers as you move through this Memorial Day Weekend, and always remember that Fairwinds Trading and Macy's are jointly empowering Haitian artisans through fair trade...a program that any mother would love.
