Celebrate World Fair Trade Day – May 10, 2014

World Fair Trade Day 2014

Mother’s Day

This weekend marks two special dates, World Fair Trade Day (May 10, 2014) & Mother’s Day! I love that these dates fall on the same weekend, because so many of the artists we support are Moms. What better way to honor your Mom by purchasing a gift that helps support a mom in need, like Layet Monica pictured above?

Layet Monica is a single mom of three, and this 31 Bits beneficiary is a beautiful example of a mother’s love! She works hard to provide for her children, send them to school, and care for their needs. And she does it all with a smile! Isn’t she stunning? Support Monica, and other moms by giving a fair trade gift this Mother’s Day! Click here to shop some of our favorite gifts for Mom!

World Fair Trade Day

World Fair Trade Day is a time to celebrate and be inspired by the work that’s being done to support a fair economy. Fair trade is about people and the planet, and about purchasing products we love that are fair to both! When you buy fair trade products, you can be sure that your purchases are directly benefiting those that made it. For farmers and the artists that we at Seven Hopes United partner with, that means getting paid a living wage for the work they do, in addition a portion of those fair trade premiums are helping to better their communities. Purchasing fair trade products is a step toward an ethical and sustainable marketplace.

This weekend, join 100,000 people around the United States and Canada in learning about and promoting fair trade! Help us support economic justice for farmers, workers, and artisans around the world. To get started, click the educational video below from our friends at Fair World Project. Then, help us spread the word & share this blog post on Facebook or Twitter #WFTD2014!

In honor of these special celebrations, SevenHopesUnited.com is offering FREE SHIPPING on all orders through 5/11/2014 with the coupon code “ILOVEMOM”. Woot woot!

We’ll also have our booth set up with all kinds of fair trade products at the Little Italy Mercato on Saturday 8am-2pm, and the Rancho Santa Fe Farmers Market on Sunday 9am-1:30pm. Be sure to stop by and say hi if you’re in San Diego!
