Giving Back This Christmas
December Fair Trade Friday Item #1
We hope you love your Christmas box as much as we loved putting it together for you! Our first item is a sweet Christmas tree ornament from 3 Cords in Haiti, hand stitched by Guerline, whom we met this summer. Guerline lost her arm in the 2010 earthquake that devastated Haiti. She used her one good arm to hand stitch the border and her teeth to stabilize the ornament. If you want more or would like to purchase one you can at our online store!
December Fair Trade Friday Item #2
Peace on Earth–it’s what we all long for, especially this time of year. This meaningful Christmas card is the perfect gift to keep or give this season. We love the simple statement brass earrings made by our friends in Peru. This order was such a blessing to these artisans and it not only provided jobs, but also allowed growth in their organization. Need a card and some cute earring, you ca purchase them on our online store!
December Fair Trade Friday Item #3
We hope you love your Winter 3 piece Birchwood Candle Set because it was a huge project for us! We think they make the perfect table decor and pray they add warmth to your home this winter. Our friends in the Ukraine worked so hard to make them (and get them to the USA). This project was a huge boost to one of our newest artisan groups. Many women were able to provide for their families because of your purchase! (These are a custom item and are not available online, but you can read about the group here: ourlegacyus.org
