FairTrade Caravans works with schools, nonprofits and companies to provide quality programs to enhance fundraising and corporate giving. Fundraising with fair trade products are win-win as the producer in the developing country benefits as well as the organization holding the fundraiser. In addition to raising money, a fair trade fundraiser also raises awareness of the fair trade concept including the working and living conditions of farmers and artisans that produce these goods.
"The FairTrade Caravans fundraiser is the most organized and easy fundraiser I have ever done! Their values match our school's mission, their fair trade certified products are beautiful as well as of high quality and we raised needed funds for our school."
Melissa Levin, Director
The Children's Center at Groton
