Ten Thousand Villages is a store that supports fair trade (more: http://philadelphia.tenthousandvillages.com/about-our-store/). On Sunday, 16-Dec, they are holding an event where money raised supports Women in Transition, an organization to help women rebuild their lives away from different types of abuse. The store’s products are awesome. Many of them are made by women in other countries and the money goes directly to the businesses.
Here’s more information about the event : http://philadelphia.tenthousandvillages.com/calenderevents/view/detail/id/2813
If you plan to do holiday shopping (for yourself or others), this could be a great way to support women while finding unique and beautiful gifts!
