A Note from the Treasurers 

Thank you for your contributions throughout the summer to both the 2015 annual budget as well as the Enhancing Our Mission capital fund drive. To date, we have received over 45% of the total 3-year pledges. (more…)

Take Note 

The King of Love my shepherd is
whose goodness faileth never,
I nothing lack if I am His,
and He is mine forever.”



Environmental degradation is linked directly to poverty in much of the world. Those who live in low-income situations often bear the burden of environmental deterioration around them and they lack the capacity and resources to live and work in a sustainable way. As an organization dedicated to eradicating poverty, we strive to use processes and support projects that benefit our artisan partners’ local environments, leading to healthier and more sustainable communities as a whole. Caring for the environment is also one of the fair trade principles we adhere to. (more…)


Dear Lord,

Thank you for all that I have – for family, friends, pets, health, food, shelter…
Thank you for all that I am – for my abilities, my knowledge and experiences…
Thank you for all that is yet to come – for the possibilities each new day brings…

Amen. (more…)

So, especially for those of you with children or grandchildren, be alert to the fact school can be a germ factory and our kids need to be reminded of how to keep their germs to themselves and how not to pick up others’ germs.
