Fair Trade Friday
Happy Friday! We have been super busy this week preparing for our Garage Sale, so we haven't had a lot of time! We know that we're behind on a Camper Update that we mentioned, but we will have it up next week, we promise! Here's a short Fair Trade Friday featuring what I wore on my 22nd birthday this past Wednesday! I spent the day on the Ithaca commons, and we had a chance to grab some shots while the sun shined for a couple minutes.
This bracelet and necklace were made by Empowered Artisans in Haiti
Haiti had this century's worst natural disaster and is home to almost 500,000 orphans. The majority of the orphans have not been orphaned by parental deaths,or natural disasters, but by parents who gave them up simply because they could not feed them. The Apparent project is the "UN-orphanage" and is helping with the orphan crisis by providing parents with sustainable business through creating products.
The wrapped beads are made out of recycled cereal boxes!
