World Fair Trade Day is this Saturday, May 9 and the whole world is celebrating! If you’re near Charlottesville, consider dropping by the Ten Thousand Villages tomorrow. I’ll be there to answer questions and talk a bit about my blog.
Here’s the write-up for the Charlottesville event:
10:00 am-7:00 pm
The World Fair Trade Day is an initiative of the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) that takes place on the second Saturday of May of each year. It is an inclusive worldwide festival of events celebrating Fair Trade as a tangible contribution to the fight against poverty and exploitation, climate change and the economic crisis that has the greatest impact on the world’s most vulnerable populations.
Join us in celebrating the benefits of Fair Trade on Saturday, May 9th. We will have fair trade food and drink, free gifts with purchase, and more!
