Early this morning Fab.com launched a curated sale from Haitian artisan group, J/P Haitian Relief Organization, which is composed of people who were displaced to a camp ever since the Haiti earthquake of January 2010. The sale has been curated and endorsed by Soleil Moon Frye, (aka) Punky Brewster.

After traveling to Haiti, Soleil fell in love with the Haitian people, among which were the people of the Hands Together Artisan Cooperative, specializing in making eclectic handmade recycled beads. 25% of each piece sold goes towards collective earnings as a social net, while 75% of earnings go to the artisan directly, and each piece of jewelry is marked with the name of the artisan who made it. Soleil, describes this jewelry as "beautiful, unique, stylish, and made by artisans with love and pride."
