  1. Here is my Fair Holiday Gift board! I loved the process of finding great fair trade gifts. There are even more unique items available than I imagined before completing this. Although many of us are budgeted around the holidays (as I am just finishing my masters degree in social work, I definitely am), I feel that supporting these fair trade products is not only giving the person a gift, but also giving back! Happy fair holidays : )

  2. This is so great!! A great time of year to remind people about #FairTrade! Would love sharing anything I win with my family and friends! As my mom always said, “Sharing is caring.”

  4. Buying, designing, and promoting fair trade products is my passion. I’ve been heartened to find such beautiful products sourced from the Fair Trade Federation and am happy to share these gifts that give twice.

  6. Loved making my board for #FairTuesday! Thanks so much for sponsoring this event and bringing awareness as to how many items are available in Fair trade and the change it can have in the world!

  7. What an amazing movement, great way for the conscious shopper to help those in need and be able to give the gifts your family, friends and kids will love! This movement is also a great way to teach others on how other countries depend on things like these products to develop and live. Xx, Maya

  8. This was the most heartwarming experience! It was really moving reading about where all these products are made from and the missions that are supported through the sales of these goods. I loved being exposed to all these new sites, such as the Given Goods Company! Thank you! Happy Holidays!

  9. I found so many cool products and companies that I never knew were out there while making this board! It’s safe to say that everyone on my list is having a fair trade Christmas! Thank you for raising awareness!

  10. I’m not sure why my comment posted “Novembers 28, 12:07am”… It’s 6:19pm Pennsylvania time on the 27th. I just posted a comment on the lets be fair blog and the correct timestamp showed up there? Hoping I’m not disqualified! : O

  11. Wow, this was a fun little project. I am so glad I found this on Pinterest. I have made it my mission to shop Fair Trade this holiday season. If you view my board you will see my shopping ventures, where I purchased, and my favorite fair trade products I have found! Thank you, and I hope to WIN!

  12. I agree with Hannah Theisen above my comment. I don’t know why it is posting my submission to contest as of November 28th, 2013. I posted my submission to contest on 11/27/13 at 8:44 p.m. I made it a POINT to get this on here before contest was “closed,” on website it outlines, “This contest runs from 8am AM ET on November 6, 2013 to 11.59PM ET on November 27, 2013.” As I still had until mid-night, I should NOT be disqualified for contest.
    I did spend a LOT of time on creating my board, gathering pins, and submitting information — So I certainly hope this will be qualified, as I am honest when I say I submitted on 11/27 at 8:44 p.m.

  13. I double checked to find my post, and I don’t see it! I swear I posted it really early on. Hope mine can still be considered! I’ve been working on it for weeks… big bummer :(
