We chose the name Ash & Ember because of how fitting it seems for the culture in Haiti. Post-earthquake and post-flood in their hometown of Montrouis, our makers found themselves among the ashes. With help from our missionary partners there (New Vision Ministries), they've been able to find embers of hope. Embers survive among the ashes, they bring light and hope that a fire may still burn. We believe that God has given them a second chance at providing for their families and saving for the future and we are privileged to be part of it. When you purchase beads, host a party or buy jewelry, you literally have the chance to change the life and future of one of our Haitian friends. Rent for them is $12 a month - with one piece of jewelry, you can more than pay a month's rent for them. Join us in empowering our friends.
