This holiday season, intentionally use your purchasing power to support Fair Trade efforts around the globe. On Sunday, November 24th, Our Lady of Guadalupe is hosting a Catholic Relief Services Fair Trade Sale in the stage area of the gym after the 8:30 am and 11:00 am Masses.

You’ll find fabulous Fair Trade gift items including chocolate, Advent calendars, jewelry, holiday and home d├ęcor, silk scarves, bags, ornaments, instruments, and baskets. By buying Fair Trade, you support the efforts of skilled farmers and artisans who are working to break the cycle of poverty and build stronger communities. CRS and SERRV develop relationships with producers and assist them in becoming self-sufficient through training, fair wages, and market access.

The 3rd grade will also be holding a Bake Sale to benefit Westside Baby, their service project site for the year. Westside Baby serves low income families with clothing, diapers and supplies for children up to age 12.

Finally, you can buy your Holiday cards to support Noel House, a Catholic Community Services shelter for homeless women.

We are also looking for a few people who can assist with wrapping items during the sale and/or clean up after the sale. For more information, contact Jennifer Ibach at jibach@olgseattle.org or 206-935-0358 x.120.
