Trade As One: Responsible Christmas shopping
[Consider this: just one average fair trade purchase this advent season by every churchgoer in America would lift one million families out of extreme poverty for one whole year.
Simply by diverting a small portion of our spending from the shopping mall to fair trade, we have a wonderful opportunity to proclaim good news to the poor.
No extra giving. No unnecessary spending. No pity purchasing. Just buying things we were going to buy anyway.
How cool is that?]
