10:00 am 10,000 Villages Fair Trade Sale (WSU)
Creating economic stability for artisans in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East is the vision of the nonprofit organization, Ten Thousand Villages. It aids the artisans of thirty-eight different countries by selling their products within the United States. This is a non-governmental organization that promotes fair trade around the world by cutting out the “middle man” in the business of trading goods. Nearly all profits made at these sales go directly to the artisans themselves to further enhance their way of life. On November 1st and 2nd, from 10-6PM, Winona State University will host the Ten Thousand Villages Fair Trade Sale in Kryzsko Commons (WSU Main Campus). A variety of beautiful and unique handmade gifts, jewelry, home decor, art, sculptures, textiles, serve ware, and personal accessories will be sold. We welcome all to attend this event and experience the diverse cultures associated with this organization, along with having the opportunity to learn more about fair trade. It is our duty as citizens of not only Winona, but as the rest of the global community that we show compassion towards our fellow brothers and sisters from around the world. Participating as active agents of their own destiny, these are people who have dreams and aspirations of a better life, these are people just like you and I who strive to make a future to better sustain our families and ourselves. To be civically involved is not only a simple act of buying goods or donating a few dollars from your pocket, but it’s also a mindset; an understanding that everyone deserves a chance and a way of life comparable to our own. Connecting with artisans from around the world in this way not only helps a specific individual progress in the economic scheme of things but it also allows them to maintain their cultural integrity while being kind to mother nature; all products are made in a sustainable and environmentally safe manner. Through the purchase of one of these beautifully crafted, handmade items, you’re supporting someone not so different from yourself! Come join us on Thursday and Friday, November 1st and 2nd; from 10-6PM and learn more about the fair trade movement.
