Fair Trade Friday is a monthly subscription that is committed to empowering women around the world. By providing women with jobs and an outlet through which they can distribute their goods, Fair Trade Friday helps women overcome poverty.
Fair Trade Friday operates three different subscriptions: the original box that includes 3-4 surprise items each month, the bracelet of the month club, and the earring of the month club. All items in each of the different subscriptions are fairly traded. This review covers the earring of the month club.
Fair Trade Friday’s Earring of the Month Club is a ministry of Mercy House Global, an organization dedicated to engaging, empowering and discipling women around the world. Mercy House Global partners with 42 faith-based organizations in 24 countries worldwide to bring their vision to life. This month, they partnered with Basha in developing and distributing the items found in their earring of the month club.
The earrings were hand made in India.
Village Artisan Milestone Earrings ($11.95) Did you know that tassels like this pair were used as symbols of milestones in the past?
The black tassel earrings we received are handcrafted using soft suede and pure brass. Lead and nickel free.
I like the message of this month’s featured piece. More than just a stylish accessory, it means women empowerment. It carries the hopes and dreams of the women who put their heart along with their skills into making this item.
Simple yet fashionable and with a greater purpose. Fair Trade Friday is such a lovely subscription!
