I am raising money for Chicago Fair Trade because fair trade allows me to sleep better at night. Fair trade allows me to know that I’ve contributed to something positive rather than not knowing. A friend recently paid me what I thought to be a huge compliment: she called me a practical optimist. I think that sums up fair trade. Fair trade gives me a concrete way to take direct action every single day in support of justice and fairness.
I am proud of and believe in the work of Chicago Fair Trade-we are leaders in the grassroots fair trade movement that is catching on in the US. This year, I am kicking off my campaign by donating $500 towards my goal and $50 to each one of my teammates. I so appreciate your support. Thank you!
