Fair Trade Christmas Shopping

That beautiful wonderful time of the year is almost here! Christmas!

Which means it's time for Christmas shopping too. Americans spend billions of dollars each year on Christmas.

Why not use that money to buy gifts AND support those in need all around the world?

If you're in the DC or Philadelphia area you can come to one of our fundraisers on December 3rd (DC) and 4th (PA). We will be selling Uganda crafts to raise money for Abide.

The DC event is 12:00-3:00 at Christ Our Shepherd Church is South East DC on December 3rd.

The PA event is at 2:00-5:00 at Kelsey's house on December 4th.

If you can't make either of those events don't worry! There are still tons of awesome organizations out there you can support this holiday season! Here are just a few. Let us know if we missed your favorite!
