The HELP Bracelet Project

We are working with the Clinton Foundation, World Vision and CHOOSEHAITI to make and sell one million bracelets we created. Made from recycled plastic bottles and paper mache, their symbolism is to send back to the US some of the water bottle we received with the news of our recovery... This video shows the first training session in a refugee camp administered by World Vision. Forty women are being shown how to make those bracelets and after three days will be handcrafting them in their homes/tents. This project will give work to several hundred of workers. Some of them will probably continue after the project and, who knows, maybe we will have new craft businesses opening in Haiti...
