OCTOBER IS FAIR TRADE MONTH

In the world calendar of events, October is Fair Trade month, where we recognize and celebrate the concept of "Fair Trade."  Linked above is a power point presentation, which was created by our District’s Health and Hunger Team. We encourage clubs to use it as a club program. There is a script included in the power point that can be used in presenting it. The power point presents information on “fair trade,” what it is, why Rotarians should promote it in their club, community or in their personal purchasing and how it can be used as a fundraiser. October is Fair Trade Month and therefore an ideal time to have a program on Fair Trade. However, it can be done any time during the year. You club also may want to use fair trade as a fundraiser, e.g. sell Fair Trade coffee, tea and chocolate and use the proceeds to fund “Fast for Hope” or health and hunger needs in your community or the world. If you have any questions about this presentation or how to proceed with promoting fair trade, please contact Bob Walz, Health and Hunger Team Leader at (651) 789-3181 or by email, EMAIL BOB. After you use it, please send your feedback to Bob Walz.
