I need to get a bigger mailbox for my Fair Trade Friday packages. I was not sure what was in this months package but it took a little to get it out of my mailbox.
I try not to sneak a look at the note card listing my items before I unpack everything. I like to be surprised each month.
I had thought about ordering these brass earrings on the website for myself so this was a welcome surprise.
These candle holders are made by women in Ukraine called Our Legacy. I love how Fair Trade Friday works with women’s groups to provide jobs.
Fair Trade Friday subscription information here: http://fairtradefriday.club/ You can do the full subscription box or choose to do earrings or bracelets by the month.
From the Fair Trade Friday website:
WHO WE ARE
Fair Trade Friday is a monthly membership club that delivers high quality fair traded items to your door. The items in the box are fair traded and provide employment to women all over the world. Plus, they are really cute! We currently have multiple monthly options: our Original Box (and very popular) Fair Trade Friday box—this include 3-4 surprise items (think stylish accessories, organic soap, coffee, etc); Earring of the Month and Bracelet of the Month. We also have a one-time box to try out as a trial or give as a gift. 100% of the proceeds from each product go toward the empowerment of impoverished women as an avenue to introduce them to the Gospel. FTF is a ministry of Mercy House Global, a non-profit organization.
