August was WorldCrafts month. The theme of our Wednesday, August 31, 2022, Family Pot Luck Supper Night was “Christmas in August” and orders were placed for Christmas presents of quality handmade crafts thereby enabling fair-trade artisans to support their families and communities by earning a living wage in a safe environment.
WorldCrafts, the fair-trade division of WMU®, develops sustainable, fair-trade businesses among impoverished people around the world. Our vision is to offer an income with dignity and the hope of everlasting life to every person on earth.
A video presentation was built to explain this new-to-UBC mission to UBC’s members and friends. That presentation can be viewed here on UBC’s Youtube Channel. A shorter version was shown in the CLC prior to and after Sunday School.
Our August event was a great success and anyone can continue to support the artisans as they work to better their families and communities. Click here to go to their site and place your order.
