Esfuerzo de Amor Holiday Sale

Esfuerzo de Amor is having a holiday sale!  We need to clear out our inventory so that we have a reason to buy more products when we return to Honduras this January.  Our gifts are perfectly priced for the holidays, with six priced under $10!


The following items are available in the UMW Bookstore or online at

Bobby Pins: $3

Headbands: $5

Earrings (Straight): $6

Earrings (Hoops): $7

Clutches (XS): $7

Clutches (S):  $9

Clutches (M): $11

Clutches (L): $15

Clutches (XL): $26

They make great stocking stuffers and are perfect for gift-exchanges with friends and co-workers, for your babysitter, for your mail carrier…the possibilities are endless!

Each Esfuerzo de Amor product is hand-crafted in the homes of our artisans out of discarded chip bags and soda labels.  When you buy an Esfuerzo de Amor product:

  • You generate needed income for our Honduran artisans and their families who live below $2 a day.
  • You support our microloan program in Honduras which is funded by the profits from every purchase.
  • You support a UMW student-run social enterprise.

Esfurezo de Amor products are gifts that give back. Happy Holidays!
