You know those organizations that you believe in so strongly that you think everyone should know about them? And if we all banded together we could really make a difference in the lives of people that truly need it? We believe in the mission of Fair Trade Friday and really feel that everyone should know that this kind of organization exists.
Fair Trade Friday is a monthly membership club that delivers a box of 3-4 high quality items to your door by the first Friday of the month. The items in the box are fairly traded and provide employment to women all over the world. 100% of the proceeds from each box goes to the empowerment of impoverished women as an avenue to introduce them to the Gospel. Fair Trade products are made by artisans in fair working conditions who were being paid a fair wage. There is no middle man so that is how the products are able to be sold for such a reasonable price.
For specific information regarding Fair Trade Friday please visit http://fairtradefriday.club.
All of the beautiful images you see here are photos from our Fair Trade boxes. Knowing that a woman in an impoverished part of the world worked to make each item and was paid a fair wage for her work is inspiring. We think of that very thing when we wear one of our products.
Currently, all of the monthly subscriptions for December are full, however there is an opportunity to purchase a one-time box at http://fairtradefriday.bigcartel.com. This is a great way to get a feel for the products and then start a subscription later.
We urge you to help make a difference in the world and get cute stuff at the same time!
