In this day and age—with budgets as tight as they are—it is tempting to make our buying decisions based entirely on price. But we ought to also consider the moral costs of our choices.
Lutheran World Relief supports Fair Trade. In line with Luther’s teachings that “we should fear and love God that we may … help [our neighbor] to improve and protect his property and business,” it is a way of doing business that acknowledges the worth and basic human rights of all people.
When you buy Fair Trade items, more of the money you spend reaches the hands of the people who crafted them. Give special fair trade gifts that improve the lives of artisans and farmers worldwide. Read more about LWR's support of Fair Trade....
