It's November and the countdown has begun until Christmas. Most stores forgot we still have Thanksgiving, and the sense of urgency of 7 more weekends until Christmas is pressed upon us with Christmas displays and ads in full swing. Meanwhile, Haiti is still waiting to start their school year after more than 7 weeks of protests and unrest. The situation in Haiti continues to worsen; companies are pulling out of the country, stores are being looted, hospitals, schools, and churches have been closed, and food and resources have become even more scarce. The hope for the world came as a babe on Christmas, and we are praying for that same hope for this desperate country. As many of us begin our preparations for this hopeful season, we have some ways you can incorporate supporting L&G ~ Haiti through our gift catalog, sending a gift to a boy, choosing L&G on AmazonSmile, following us on Instagram to learn of artisan groups in Haiti, and participating in #GivingTuesday. Please join us in bringing hope to this country.
