Double Your Gift Giving Through Fair Trade

With the holiday season underway and many of us feeling the effects of the current economy, now’s the time to think about giving meaningful gifts. Catholic Relief Services offers an easy way for holiday shoppers to buy fair trade gift items, like coffee, chocolate, or handcrafts. An alternative to conventional shopping, fair trade ensures that artisans and farmers receive a fair price for their products.

Through CRS’ Work of Human Hands catalog, you can buy affordable fair trade handcrafts and gourmet food items that were produced by 90 small producer groups in more than 36 countries throughout the world. The catalog is now available online and includes items like olive oil from Galilee, coffee from Nicaragua, or nativity sets for kids from Sri Lanka. Order your gift now and you’ll be sure to give twice this season.

    Thanks for the suggestion John! I also wanted to let folks know that if they purchase from the on-line catalog before Dec 1, shipping is free. How nice to be able to save money AND shop Fair Trade!
