A Million Hearts for Haiti
 
Million Hearts for Haiti is a creative, adventurous, funky and whimsical initiative that brings together a universal symbol and a universal cause: A Million Hearts for Haiti is a hit at the Santa Fe Folk Art Market with people making huge purchases for gifts and collectibles, always including the tag that tells a powerful story where culture and commerce intersect beautifully and lovingly.  The goal is to sell one millio hearts and raise one million USD  for artists by selling beautiful hearts made from recycled paper, metal, papier-mache, wood, sequined fabric and recycled materials along with painting by Gerard Fortune and the art of street kids.
