Show Your Heart This Mother’s Day: Special Fair Trade Gifts for Your Mom

0

When you’re thinking of gifts for Mother’s Day, think fair trade. A fair trade gift will tell Mom you have put your heart into finding the right gift. And finding that special fair trade gift is made simple by Catholic Relief Services’ (CRS) partner Serrv. They have a new spring collection with home, kitchen, jewelry, apparel, and garden gifts that will make your mother proud.

Serrv provides fair wages and a better life for artisans like Etia, a terra cotta artisan from Bangladesh. Etia uses the funds to put her daughter, Shokina, through school.

CRS Fair Trade and Serrv work to make a better life for artisans, much like a mother who works to give her children the best start. When a product is fair trade it guarantees fair wages to disadvantaged artisans, farmers and workers. Many of these workers are women who otherwise would have a hard time finding work. Women like Etia, a Bangladeshi mother who makes terra cotta handcrafts so her daughter, Shokina, can go to school.

By purchasing fair trade items you are also providing access to vital training, like financial skills, that struggling artisans and farmers need but so rarely get. Most importantly, fair trade connects these producers with gift buyers who understand that the choices we make every day as consumers have the power to make the trading system work better.
