Fair Trade Friday Earring of the Month Club for February 2017

I have been a subscriber since day one of the Fair Trade Friday monthly box.  I love getting mail that is not all bills but also contains items that make our world a better place.  Beyond the monthly box Fair Trade Friday also offers a bracelet of the month club and an earring of the month club.

In February I also purchased the earring of the month for February.  I wanted to see what they offered and I was not disappointed!

Happy Mail

Yesterday the mail box held good things.  Lately its been full of college information, bills and magazines.  This time there was only one college brochure, one magazine and my Fair Trade Friday package.

My first item is a taco cord keeper.  This will be so handy when I travel!  Between chargers and headphones I usually have some sort of mess brewing in my bag.

Whew, back to normal & Fair Trade Friday happened!

What a crazy past few weeks it has been!  Hardly enough time between trips to wash clothes and repack.   I hate to feel so rushed and pushed.  Digging through the mail I found my Fair Trade Friday package for January. That made my day!

It is Time for Fair Trade Friday!

It was a happy day when my Fair Trade Friday package was in my mailbox and not just junk mail.  You know Fair Trade Friday is my favorite day!

First was the cute wallet.  I love the colors and the story behind it even more.

From Fair Trade Friday’s Facebook page ” Guerline is 22 years old. She’s a seamstress at Three Cords in Haiti. Her story, her faith, and her work are incredibly inspiring and an amazing example of the Lord;s redemption and restoration. In the earthquake of 2010, Guerline lost her arm when a wall fell upon her. This event was extremely difficult for her, as she was forced to relearn basic tasks such as buttoning her shirt or doing her hair. In addition, amputee victims are often viewed as outcast in Haitian culture, so lacking her arm led to much ridicule from others. In 2015, she was fitted for a prosthetic arm. Guerline was absolutely overjoyed to receive her arm, and it has been amazing seeing her thankfulness, faith, and joy every day. Guerline loves working at Three Cords because she has experienced a lot of hope for working with other women who are able to relate to her situation. she did the hand stitching that embellishes your (more than 1600 for our July box!) wallet using her good arm to stabilize the product and her teeth to pull the stitches through.
