here’s something extra special about merchandise that will benefit a charity, good cause or workers and craftspeople in developing nations. Customers feel extra good about their purchase. Not only are they buying something that they or a gift recipient will enjoy, but they are helping others, too.

One of the world’s largest fair trade organizations, Ten Thousand Villages, strives to improve the livelihood of tens of thousands of disadvantaged artisans in 38 countries in Asia, Africa, Central America, South America, the Caribbean and Middle East. “Ten Thousand Villages accomplishes this by establishing a sustainable market for handmade products in North America, and building long-term buying relationships in places where skilled artisan partners lack opportunities for stable income,” said Juanita Fox, advertising coordinator, Ten Thousand Villages, Akron, Pa. “Product sales help pay for food, education, healthcare and housing for artisans who would otherwise be unemployed or underemployed.”
