My wife has been working with the women of the church to do something that is more global in nature. One of her passions is fair trade products. So, at the service yesterday she gave a presentation on a fundraiser the women will be doing. The fundraiser is to sale fair trade products. It's a win-win. The church raises money for missions and the profit the company makes helps others around the world get out of a cycle of poverty.
Here's the video we showed, I think it conveys the point well:
Right now it is impossible to support fairly traded products with 100% of our purchases, however, each of us can still do our part to make the lives of others better around the world.
I'm proud of my wife.
