BLUE ASH, Ohio -- Instead of stressing over finding that creepy animal toy that your kid will forget in a week, what about one-of-a-kind, handmade holiday gifts from Haiti?

Matthew 25: Ministries is hosting its "Shop for a Cause" event from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday at its location at 11060 Kenwood Road.

Featured items include crocheted scarves, hats, bags and more made by young women in Haiti as part of Matthew 25: Ministries’ Microenterprise Program. This program enables young girls living in an orphanage to learn the skills of crocheting and knitting, empowering them to work toward economic stability.

Proceeds from this event support the program in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Visit the website here for more information.
