We hope you can join 'The Harpers on the Move' in our commitment to raise $4,000.
We saw our lives turned upside down in 2020 and those living on the edge became more vulnerable and visible. And that was even more true for those living on the margins around the globe.
I think about the artisans and farmers around the world I have had a chance to meet and learn from over the years and the positive impact fair trade was having in their lives. They were now able to educate their children, get access to health care and be assured of safe working conditions. But today, because of the global impact of COVID-19, their businesses and livelihoods have been hurt in such a profound way. So I’m more committed than ever to make a difference.
I’d like to invite you to join me in having an impact on people’s lives. You can learn more about fair trade and purchase more fair trade products on our website (fairtradela.org) – and tell others about what you’ve learned. I have set a goal of raising $3,000 over these next two weeks - I hope you can support me! The funds will support the work of Fair Trade LA, including our goal to make the 2028 Olympics in Los Angeles a Fair Trade Olympics. We all can play a part in creating the world we want! The Harpers will walk, swim, run, and bike to our limits over the next two weeks!
