Every donation matters...double!
Are you a Fair Trade fan, advocate, or devotee? Do you faithfully search for that bag of coffee grounds with the Fair Trade Certified™ label on it during your weekly grocery store run? If the answer is yes, we applaud you! When you look for that black and white Fair Trade certified label you've come to know and trust, are you curious about Fair Trade USA, the nonprofit organization behind the label? Our goal during Fair Trade Month is to raise 1,000 donations, large or small. We invite you to join us! If you make a donation of $15 or more this October, Fair Trade USA’s board of directors will match your contribution – doubling its dollar value and impact. Fair Trade USA works with 1.5 million farmers and workers to fight poverty and protect the environment in 70 countries worldwide. Headquartered in Oakland, California, it is Fair Trade USA’s job to grow the United States market for Fair Trade certified products, support farming cooperatives, raise public awareness, and, yes, fund raise. Charitable dollars make it possible for Fair Trade USA to grow the global Fair Trade network to include more farmer and worker families. Over the last few years, charitable contributions helped Fair Trade USA expand Fair Trade to include wine from Chile, honey from Mexico, and cotton from Mali. If you make a donation today, October 1st, you have the chance to win a $50 gift certificate to WorldofGood.com. To enter today’s contest, make a donation of and then post a message on Fair Trade USA's Facebook page saying why you donated. Three winners will be chosen at random.
