Fair Trade !!
I am LOVING the fact that the folks here at Flesherton have not only supported, but have EMBRACED the sale of Fair Trade products !!!
We have a WIDE range of coffee from THREE (yes, THREE) different companies, and as of today, we have dried fruit, tea, chocolate, sugar and even Fair Trade Merchandise available at the Church Office as well as at booths at two Farmers' Markets !!!
So far the Pastoral Charge has realized a profit of close to $500 dollars in less than a month, and we've raised the level of awareness in the community about our presence, and about Fair Trade tremendously.
It feels good just know you can really make a difference sometimes !!!
