  1. I just received the CRS Fair Trade catalog, and I look forward to shoppping differently this year. Not only with my loved ones in mind but also with others half-way around the world in mind. I also am excited to peruse these Advent materials for my family’s prayer time, as we prepare for the birth of Christ this Christmas. I am grateful to CM for introducing me to CRS!
