Fair Trade: Good for Farmers, Good for the Soul

Last week, I organized some fair trade awareness events which included: handing out free samples of fair trade coffee, providing information on fair trade, and going to an informational presentation on fair trade at a local business. I stressed out about getting all the supplies and getting the word out all last week, that I lost focus and what was important. But when I had faculty members and fellow students come up to me and tell me that they learned a lot and were going to start trying to be more aware of the things they buy, it all made sense again. It is amazing what pouring yourself out to other people can do for oneself.
