On Giving Tuesday, You Shop and We Give!

Bon Jou, as my friends in Haiti say.

In celebration of GIVING TUESDAY, we're doing something BIG for our friends in Haiti! We're donating 30% of ALL NET SALES made today only (11/30/21) to Collège Lumière outside Les Cayes.

If you've poked around the Izzy Knits website, you likely already know that my family considers Haiti our second home. We've been in partnership with Pastor Samuel Metelus in southern Haiti since 2012, and even lived there with him and his 50+ kids for a few months in 2016 (check out our family blog). Since then, we've been helping him build a school...and I'm delighted to announce that Collège Lumière finally opened it's doors last month to its first 300 students!

In the words of Pastor Samuel... In our culture, parents say, “I don’t have a lot of wealth to leave for you, but I will leave you education.” With education, it’s hard to make it. Without education, it’s impossible to make it.

Please, consider making a purchase today to help educate Haiti's children for tomorrow! (Click here for more about Izzy Knits' commitment to giving back.)
