Change the World, Look Good Doing It.

 

Fair Trade Friday exists as an avenue for women to empower women.  We are tackling poverty through job opportunity and empowerment rather than enablement in Jesus’ name. 100% of the proceeds support the artisans, thousands of women and their children around the world. FTF is a ministry of Mercy House Global, a non-profit organization.

“The first time we received a big order from Fair Trade Friday in Zambia, over 60 women cheered, screamed, danced, rejoiced. Because to them it’s not just some extra money in their pockets to feed their kids or pay school fees. It’s empowerment, it’s someone who says “I believe in you. I am with you.” It gives the message to these ladies, overlooked and oppressed by society, that they are worthy. That they have something beautiful to offer the world, a skill and a story that can inspire women thousands of miles away.” Clothed in Hope, Zambia

WHO WE ARE

Fair Trade Friday is a monthly membership club that delivers high quality fair traded items to your door. The items in the box are fair traded and provide employment to women all over the world. Plus, they are really cute! We currently have multiple monthly options: our Original Box (and very popular) Fair Trade Friday box—this include 3-4 surprise items (think stylish accessories, organic soap, coffee, etc); Earring of the Month and Bracelet of the Month. We also have a one-time box to try out as a trial or give as a gift. 100% of the proceeds from each product go toward the empowerment of impoverished women as an avenue to introduce them to the Gospel. FTF is a ministry of Mercy House Global, a non-profit organization.

WHY SHOP FAIR TRADE?

It ensures club products were made by artisans in fair working conditions who were being paid a fair wage.

Basically, no child gave up his education, home and family to labor in a sweat shop so that your calves can be toasty in a pair of trendy boot cuffs. You can give gifts of handcrafted jewelry and unique home decor with a clear conscience. People say it’s the thought behind the gift that counts most. In this case, we’ve done some of that thinking for you.

The Heart Behind Fair Trade Friday

Fair Trade Friday, a ministry of Mercy House, understands that women in poverty don’t want charity; they want a job. We work to engage, empower and disciple women around the globe in Jesus’s name.
