Can you believe it has been a year since the first Fair Trade Friday box? Neither can I! They recently wrote on their Facebook page “A year ago we started with 82 members, which seemed overwhelming as we packed the boxes. This month, we mailed out packages to more than 850 members. Happy birthday to us!”
Crazy!!!!! And amazing! I love getting new items each month. I love it that they have a waiting list so others are joining in. And I love that we are helping other women and families!
So what did I get for the one year anniversary?
The confetti was a fun touch! A magnet with the artisan prayer, and a bracelet. A dish towel and the redeemed necklace. All wrapped up in the celebrate stamped bag.
I have already been wearing the necklace. I love it! The necklace parts were made by four different groups but together its a beautiful reminder.
My box helped employ 10 people this month.
