Raise money for your cause and do more good in the world with a fair trade fundraiser.

Why fair trade? Fair trade benefits farmers and artisans who are socially and economically marginalized. These producers face steep hurdles when it comes to finding markets or customers for their products.

Fair trade focuses on commodities or goods typically exported from these places such as coffee and tea, chocolate, jewelry, and handmade crafts. Traditional world trade practices don’t usually benefit the artisans and farmers — and often even exploits them.

“The activity both raised money for our schools, and provided students and teachers learning opportunities for understanding around real global issues in the classroom.”

– Rob Dunn,
Shrewsbury Middle Schools
