I wrote this article about how and why to celebrate World Fair Trade Day. I truly believe with all my heart that Fair Trade is an effective response to poverty. And we need a response, because:
- More than 1.1 billion people live on less than $1 per day.
- At least 80% of humanity lives on less than $10 a day.
- 22 000 children die each day due to poverty.
So weather you watch a video that enlarges your world (I am because we are by Madonna is a wonderful video about Malawi), read a book with your kids to teach them about Fair Trade, hold a Fair Trade coffee break at your place of work, please keep spreading the message about Fair Trade! And keep fair trading your life!
