Are you going to make a difference with some of your purchases this holiday season? If we all try to spend some of our dollars on gifts that provide a fair wage what a difference that would make to artisans around the world! Artisans that live on $2 – $3 per day can have hope of a better year ahead with each and every purchase we make.
Education And More is a Fair Trade nonprofit organization and we are a proud member of the Fair Trade Federation. The artisans we work with make a per hour wage that gives them the ability to help care for their families.
This time of the year we are busy shipping crafts to Fair Trade bazaars around the country that are hosted by universities, schools, churches and individuals. If you have a Fair Trade bazaar near you be sure to stop in and help artisans around the world by shopping with certified Fair Trade organizations and bazaars. We have already shipped to many bazaars and we would like to thank the hundreds of volunteers for their help in selling our artisan handcrafts!
Coming up soon are Fair Trade bazaars at these locations:
Many Hands, Many Lands — Winona, MN — Friday, November 25
Kansas University – Ecumenical Campus Ministy, Lawrence, KS — November 25 – Dec 3
Zion Lutheran Church — Leola, PA — December 2 & 3
Clarkston United Methodist Church, Clarkston, MI — December 3 & 4
Be sure to stop by and see all of the beautiful handcrafts from Education And More artisans and many other artisans around the world.
Thank you for making a difference this holiday season!
