Last week, in the fog of pneumonia, I told you about Fair Trade Friday. (I’m not being dramatic. It really was that bad!) I explained how I was taking my first steps in becoming a conscious consumer. How I was taking on the big monster that is American consumerism. And starting with one simple yes to fair trade. I signed up to get a monthly box of items from the FTF club. Every month I receive 3-4 items from faith based non-profits that empower women from around the world. It’s one of the many things I love about this ministry. A powerful vision birthed from Kristen and Mercy House in Kenya. Check this video out to learn about their story.
They partner with many non-profits in over 18 countries. With the same heartbeat, these organizations empower women and communities, giving them the opportunity to work with dignity for themselves and their families. Organizations like Caring for Korah, “Korah is a community that sits on the outskirts of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia next to the Koshe garbage dump,” and Village Artisan in Northern India. With passion, they set out to partner with struggling artisan communities in the area. “Sixteen years since the birth of Village Artisan, over 100 artisans are earning a living wage through dignified work in a caring community.” These non-profits are being run by indigenous leadership. While many their founders support and spread the word stateside. Lighting a fire under our bottoms and sharing their stories like wild fire!!!
So let’s get right to the point friends! GIVEAWAY!!! Free stuff. What. What. YOLO. You do only live once. So promise me you’ll go check out the FTF club. Sign up for a box or Earrings of the month. But in the mean time, follow the instructions on the giveaway and you might get a GORGEOUS picture frame from Village Artisan.
Seriously. I really wanted to keep this. It even matched my decor! But someone told me once, it’s better to give than receive. So there you have it! Tell your friends and family. Share this post and sign up for the GIVEAWAY. Click this link!
