Organic Fair Trade: helping each other

I call it Micro-Hope.

It’s my word, I guess.

What it encompasses is trying to find a way to buy what we need from each other.

I have asked Shelley Seale, the author, for links to foundations/groups that we can help. She has supplied me with a link to her site: See Shelley’s Resources.

I am also attempting to amass links to individuals, women, families, children, trying to make a living. I will start small but ask all of you to stop in, share some links, and we will update accordingly.

Blessings.

Start Small:

Women and Fair Trade

Etsy and Fair Trade

Global Girlfriend

NonProfit Shopping

CRS Voices

We are at the beginning of amassing sites/references/resources to help one another. Please help us.

Namaste.

  1. Thank you for focusing action on fair trade! The movement is now heading for the White House (and Global Farye is a part as an Official supporter too).

    FAIR TRADE THE WHITE HOUSE:
    Fair Trade the White House is a coalition of fair trade vendors and organizations that are inviting the First Lady to join the fair trade movement and make the White House a “Fair Trade Home.” The purpose of the outreach is to raise greater awareness of fair trade to the American consumer so each person will choose to “Join the Fair Party,” and integrate more fair trade purchases into their regular buying habits so that poverty is reduced in America and around the world.

    Green America, TransFair, Fair Trade Federation, Fair Trade Resource Network are all involved as are 52 other fair trade vendors so far. Our invitation to the First Lady went live May 29th, and we are gearing up for a great campaign which is projected to run through May, 2010.
