I care deeply about fair trade and I serve on the board of Chicago Fair Trade. There are a lot of worthy causes out there, and fair trade is high on my list because it empowers everyone it reaches: the artisans with a dignified and safe job; businesses like Greenheart who are mission driven; the earth because of how resources are procured; and conscious consumers that allocate money toward the world they want to live in and leave behind for future generations.
When you donate to Chicago Fair Trade, you stregthen our network and help more artisans and farmers earn a fair wage. CFT is proud to be a local and national leader in raising awareness about and building support for fair trade and its principles of environmental sustainability, ethical production methods, fair wages, and safe working conditions. Your donation will support the many activities Chicago Fair Trade has planned for the next year including: two Fair Trade Student Summits, three Fair Trade Mixers. the biggest World Fair Trade Day celebration in the U.S., film screenings, presentations, pop up shops, and much more. As a small but mighty and growing non-profit organization, your donation means a great deal to us. We thank you for your support in helping us spread the message of fair trade!
