Holiday shopping to benefit our community
Sign up your organization for the Holiday Benefit Shopping program in our store here.
November 22 - December 6 we will donate 15% of your purchase to your organization when you mention their name at checkout. When holiday gift shoppers choose fair trade they are already choosing to make a difference with their purchase. During our Holiday Benefit Shopping program the impact of their purchase reaches even further to support organizations in our local community and working around the world.
Attend the kickoff party for food, music, shopping, and a chance to win an additional $200 for your organization!
Saturday November 22, 2014 at 7pm. RSVP here.
Ten Thousand Villages in Pasadena, CA, is a fair trade retailer of artisan-crafted home decor, personal accessories and gift items from across the globe. Featuring products from more than 130 artisan groups in some 38 countries, we are part of a network of over 390 retail outlets throughout the United States selling Ten Thousand Villages products.
As one of the world’s oldest and largest fair trade organizations, Ten Thousand Villages has spent more than 60 years cultivating trading relationships in which artisans receive a fair price for their work and consumers have access to distinctive handcrafted items. We seek to establish long-term buying relationships in places where skilled artisans are under- or unemployed, and in which they lack other opportunities for income. A founding member of IFAT- the World Fair Trade Organization, Ten Thousand Villages sees fair trade as an alternative approach to conventional international trade.
