Watch Willa Shalit, CEO of Fairwinds Trading, share her definition of digital sisterhood on February 27, 2011, at Camping des Orangers, a beach resort in Jacmel, Haiti. Shalit is also an Artist, Author, Co-Founder of V-Day, and Founder of Touch Foundation. Visit http://www.fairwindstrading.com to learn more about her work.

The Heart of Haiti campaign is a partnership between Fairwinds Trading, Macy's, and the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund. It was created to provide sustainable income to Haitian artisans impacted by the January 2010 earthquake. Through the partnership, the artisans create artwork that is sold as the Heart of Haiti collection in Macy's stores. The sales from these hand-made products including quilts, metalwork, paper måché, painting and jewelry generate the sustainable income and provide trade instead of aid to the Haitian artisans.
