About Fair Trade Friday + a Giveaway!

It would be an understatement to say that I like fair trade; I LOVE fair trade.
For me, it started back when I was a young teen. Ten Thousand Villages had a shop that would come to our local mall over the holiday season. Because it was seasonal, instead of hiring employees, they would look for volunteers. A dear lady from church gathered a small group of girls, my friends and I, together, to help out for a day.
We were taught a bit about the products, and how the ladies/families who handcrafted these products were able to make a sustainable living by selling the items, and, in turn, they could send their children to school, giving them the opportunity to have a better life through the help of education.
Something resonated with me, and ever since that holiday season many years ago, I have loved and supported many fair trade organizations.
So of course, when I found out about Fair Trade Friday, a ministry of Mercy House Kenya, I was intrigued, and knew that this was an organization I would gladly support. I am so excited for the opportunity to team up with them a share a bit about the mission.
Fair Trade Friday is a monthly membership club that delivers high quality fair traded items to club members. The stylish boxes provide employment for women all over the world. They have several options: You can choose to subscribe to the Fair Trade Friday gift box--this includes 3-4 surprise gift items (think jewelry, coffee, bags/totes, soaps, etc), that will be delivered to you monthly; or you could receive a trial/gift box, which is the same as the first option, but it would be a one-time deal; and finally, the Earring of the Month, which delivers a fun pair of earrings to members each month. 100% of the proceeds from each product go toward the empowerment of impoverished women as an avenue to introduce them to the Gospel!
Fair Trade Friday generously sent me several items to review. And with the hope that this will spread the word even farther, potentially increasing sales, which would increase job opportunities for these women, I am hosting a giveaway of one of those items: the JOYN tote.
This beautiful tote was handwoven, hand printed, and hand stitched. It is made from genuine leather and cotton in the foothills of the Himalayas. It has a red lining inside, with a small pocket, perfect for a cell phone or keys. It is very sturdy, and with care, will last for years!
