Posted on June 21 2016

We are so very excited + blessed to be partnering with an amazing company that is made with immense purpose that is changing lives in Haiti!  We are honored to now be carrying the wonderfully crafted BÉLJOY Jewelry in our shop!   BÉLJOY is partnered with the Haitian Christian Mission to provide sustainable jobs through the production of Haitian-made artisan goods. 

 A little about Haiti you may not know, it is the poorest country in the western hemisphere with 80% of it's citizens who are living below the poverty threshold. The average Haitian lives off of less than $2 per day. In the midst of the daily challenges they face, they are filled with hope and joy. 

"BÉLJOY engages the Haitian people by teaching them the trade of quality jewelry making. We are committed to the local sourcing of components like clay and paper beads and horn. This makes BÉLJOY jewelry distinctive, beautiful and meaningful to the artisans. By teaching this trade and paying a superior wage, we hope to strengthen people, restore dignity, and give them an opportunity to provide for their families. Every purchase made directly affects lives in Haiti and increases the opportunity to bless others.  The Haitian people have changed our lives, showing us that true joy, despite circumstance, can only come from Jesus. That joy inspires the name BÉLJOY: BÉL means beautiful in Haiti's native language of Creole. The Haitian's glad hearts are beautiful and their faces are a clear reflection of the JOY they have in God." -Abby Clevenger { Founder } 

We LOVE these unique and well made pieces of jewelry that provides jobs for women in Haiti! All of these artisans are being taught the art of work and are challenged to grow in many areas of life, and they all want the same thing, the chance to earn a living wage lift their families and communities out of poverty. Thank you SO much for helping us support them! Check out some of the items in our shop!

We hope you enjoy these unique pieces and the mission behind them as much as we do!
