October is Fair Trade month! What is “Fair Trade?” Fair trade is a movement to support economic opportunities for marginalized communities through ethical, environmentally conscious, and sustainable production. When you buy Fair Trade, you know the hands who made what you purchase. You also know that your product was made in safe working conditions and the person was paid fairly.
We are excited to announce that once again, the M3 Conference will have a fair trade store! It will be hosted by HandUp Global Goods (HUGG) – they offer a ‘hand up’ for teens transitioning out of orphanages to eliminate a life of ‘handouts.’
HUGG lovingly empowers young men living in impoverished communities to transform their lives and the lives of those around them through a holistic development process. From providing a job, to spiritual development, financial literacy, and vocational training, HUGG equips these young men to become responsible workers, family members, and community leaders. The results extend beyond the individual men and transform families and communities. Click here to learn more about HandUp Global Goods.
