America's First Fair Trade Town Committee (Media Fair Trade Committee) is just one of 35,000+ groups listed by members at iGive. Here's a little more detail on them, as provided by members or the organization itself:
In its three years as a Fair Trade town, Media has already inspired nine other towns in the US to follow suit. Together we are raising awareness of how the simple purchase of Fair Trade Certified products can support the local economy and address poverty in the developing world.
We are a group of hard-working, dedicated, local, merchants and residents, who have an interest in furthering the goals of Fair Trade commerce and in making Media a model Fair Trade Town.
We started in 2005 with just a few individuals. After meeting almost every Thursday morning for an hour, we have grown to about two dozen members. We have accomplished amazing things in our short existence and have a long list of ideas we
want to pursue. We welcome new members and always need more hands, minds, and good humor!
Total raised through iGive: $155.99
