What wonderful synchronicity! World Fair Trade Day and Mother's Day fall on the same weekend this year -- May 11 and May 12! This year, think about buying a fair trade gift for your mother. In doing so, you are honoring mothers around the world.
Fair Trade means that the item has been made or grown by workers who work in safe conditions and are paid a livable wage. Fair Trade promotes gender equality and safe environmental practices. Since so many of the workers who make Rain Lily's crafts are women, your fair trade purchase improves the lives of mothers and their families everywhere.
We hope you and your family have a wonderful Mother's Day this Sunday.
