It looks like Fair Trade Friday has upgraded its packaging and printed materials! Nice! This card was included with information about the earrings and the charitable organizations that are included.

The Woven Rwanda Earring by Fashion & Compassion, Rwanda – Retail Value $18

How funky! These earrings are super cool. They have a really exotic vibe that I love. They were handmade and hand-dyed from woven grasses! The discs measure about 2″ across. Fashion & Compassion is the organization this month, and they provide training and dignified employment for artisans in Rwanda, Uganda, Mexico, Honduras, Ethiopia, and their refugee community in Charlotte, NC.

The Verdict: I love my subscription to Fair Trade Friday Earring OTM Club! This month’s earrings are really cool, and I know I will get a lot of use out of them. In addition, I really like the charitable giving aspect of this subscription, and usually, the value is really good, too.

  1. I really like those earrings, and having seen the incomprehensible aftermath of the genocide in Rwanda I was all lined up to buy them. However, I then learned that the organization behind “Fashion and Compassion Rwanda” ((note: NOT the Fair Trade Friday org)) describes themselves like this:

    “Fashion & Compassion creates empowerment communities where vulnerable women connect with God, one another and resources as their lives are transformed.

    “Fashion & Compassion runs programs in Charlotte, North Carolina and we partner with Artisan projects in six other countries. F&C teaches women to make jewelry and other crafts. These products provide supplemental income to the women and an income stream for the organization.”

    I’m all for economic support to those with less, but I am most definitely NOT ok with religious organizations targeting those in poor economic circumstances for proselytizing purposes.

    Plus, the women’s work provides “an income stream for the organization??”
