I got an email from the Fiar Trade organization letting me know that October is Fair Trade Month. There is going to be many offers and ways that you can help out this year. This year's theme is "Every Purchase Matters." Even if you can't make a huge donation, think about the holidays. You can buy a present that may mean a whole lot more than just a gift. Like the theme states, "Every Purchase Matters!"
Each day there will be a different partner on their website that will highlight their campaign and you can decide whom to purchase from and support. And again, you don't have to make a purchase, there will be other ways that you and your family can contribute and help other families around the world.
Here are a few other ways that you can participate this month:
Starting the first week of September, join us in getting the word out about Fair Trade with our Fair Trade Month blog, banner and widget!
Visit www.fairtradcertified.org for more info.
You can also help out by jumping on the social bandwagon:
"Help us reach our goal of 1000 donations for Fair Trade, 100 new Fair Trade Town campaigns, 200 Fair Trade Month events, 60,000 supporters on Facebook and 8000 followers on Twitter. Every purchase matters and every action you take makes a real difference for the world’s farmers."
