Fair Trade

Courage for Compassion

Pause to consider
Our moral obligations:
The greater the wealth,
Great responsibility –
Find courage for compassion

New Year’s Resolution #2 – to promote Fair Trade

Having taken a first step to purchase more Fair Trade products, I began to be frustrated by the limited availability of products, and the lack of promotion of a cause which will play a part in restoring justice to our world.

God willing, I hope to encourage and enable others to understand Fair Trade, and to play a small part in helping us all to consider where and who our goods come from, and to see developing world producers get a fair deal.
