Brighten Their Lives

November 27 – December 1, 2015

At Ten Thousand Villages Evanston, we’re committed to finding new ways to surprise and satisfy our customers—as well as funding our artisans’ educational and healthcare needs through our mission of fair trade.

That’s why we’re launching our “Brighten Their Lives” campaign from “Bright Friday” (November 27th, the day after Thanksgiving) to Giving Tuesday on December 1st .

Our volunteers made one-of-a-kind gift bags and sashes by hand from vintage and repurposed holiday decor, brocade, vintage buttons and other treasures—and specially sized them to fit our organic, Fair Trade chocolate bars, bagged coffee, jewelry, and more! Our unique, vintage bags and sashes make holiday wrapping a cinch, creating a lovely, thoughtful gift presentation for the most cherished people on your gift list.

Will you join us in changing the world? Beginning on Bright Friday, November 27th , we’ll be offering these one-of-a-kind items at our 719 Main Street store as a thank you for your donation of $10 or more.

Your contribution means so much to our product partners across the globe, whose artistry lends our store its beauty, mission, and meaning.

Explore our world of fair trade treasures, including lovely gifts, home decor, personal accessories, jewelry, chocolate, coffee and so much more. By purchasing fair trade items at Ten Thousand Villages, you can make a difference in the lives of artisans around the globe. Our mission is to provide fair wage income for people in the developing world by marketing their handcrafted products and sharing their artisan stories. The more items we sell, the more families we can help support. Artisans are better able to improve their homes, educate their children and put food on the table – and to live healthier lives of dignity.
