A Gift of Trees


For our 15th Anniversary Year, we are embarking on a fundraiser to try to plant 10,000 trees from Ten Thousand Villages.  In this year of devastating forest fires and with the continuing threat of climate change, we feel it is a good time to focus on the environmental aspects of fair trade embodied in Fair Trade Principle #10 from the World Fair Trade Organization:  “Climate Action and Protection of the Environment”.

We are selling $10 gift enclosure cards that will lead to the planting of four tree saplings:  two in our local area through the Ganaraska Regional Conservation Authority and two nationally through the non-profit organization Tree Canada.  Our primary mission statement as a non-profit is to help artisans internationally to have a fair wage for their labour, so this fundraiser allows us to do something that is both national and local within Canada.

If you would like to purchase this fundraiser gift for yourself or someone else, we will email you the gift enclosure card shown in the picture.

The fundraiser has been extended from the original end date of Earth Day in April 2024 to the end of our full anniversary year in August 2024!
