CRS Craft Favorites -- Catholic Pinterest Board of the Week


Follow CatholicPinner on Twitter

I hope as you’re reading this, you have the good sense to be bundled up on your couch, enjoying a mug of coffee and a slice of yesterday’s leftover pie, and that you’re not reading this from your iPhone in a Mall parking lot somewhere. Why? Because this week’s Board of the Week from our friends at Catholic Relief Services Fair Trade is not only filled with awesome eye-catching pins — it’s also the type of board that can save you time in buying gifts. But wait! There’s more! Not only are these pins on Craft Favorites beautiful, but they are “fair trade”. According to CRS’ information on their Pinterest profile, “We offer opportunities for US Catholics to support global economic justice through education and the promotion of coffee, chocolate and crafts that offer fair wages and human dignity”. So shop in peace, knowing that the beautiful gifts you select will keep on giving. And by repinning, you help to spread the word about the wonderful work being done by Catholic Relief Services around the world! It was tough to select just one of their boards, so be sure to follow them all and to share them with your friends too!
