A project that blends craft, geography and fund-raising: Haiti houses

Originally uploaded by Darren-Ell
At their best, the people of Haiti build simple, narrow houses that are painted in bright colors. One of the greatest attributes of Haitians, many people have observed, is their artful decoration of everyday objects. Their vehicles, houses, clothing and tools of life are often personalized with color and decorative detail.

This project, at, is one I find appealing. Let me know what you think of it.
