Laura (USA) and Aly (Haiti) promote economic empowerment in the earthquake-devastated city of Port-Au-Prince by selling Haitian artists upcycled handmade creations. This adorable paper mache giraffe, named Lucy, is one of many...

...artist creations perfect for a child's playroom or for any faux-taxidermy fan. You can support local Haitian artists by ordering through Laura and Aly's collaborative Etsy shop, The Painted Turtle, here. Many of the items are under $50. Lucy, the giraffe is priced at a modest $58.
