Help Fair Trade Minneapolis at Twin Cities Pride - with Fair Trade artisan products from Haiti

ORGANIZATION: Fair Trade Minneapolis

Fair Trade Mpls at 2023 Minnehaha Falls Art Fair
Art Fair in Minnehaha Falls Park in Minneapolis

Haiti needs help. Fair Trade Minneapolis brings metal wall art, Haiti Friends dolls, ceramic mugs, greeting cards, and garden stakes - from Papillon Marketplace in Haiti - to events in Minneapolis.

Fair Trade Minneapolis needs volunteers at Twin Cities Pride. We're often just my mother and me (see photo), so I'm reaching out to ask for your help.

More information: I've started Fair Trade Minneapolis, a 501c3 nonprofit. We encourage people to choose Fair Trade products - to pay farmers & artisans fairly, protect our environment with the Fair Trade Standards for sustainable agriculture and ensure that cocoa for Fair Trade chocolate has been farmed by adults.

At events, we sell Fair Trade artisan products made in Haiti by parents at Papillon Marketplace https://papillonmarketplace.com. In Haiti, Papillon Marketplace hires parents and pays them fairly for their work. Papillon Marketplace provides child care, preschool, elementary school, and job skills training for their children. They say that our orders for their products help.

To events, we also bring dozens of kinds of Fair Trade tea, and some Fair Trade chocolate - and give this away for free when time permits.

We need volunteers who can help us for about 3-1/4 hours each during Twin Cities Pride at our booth for Fair Trade Minneapolis - Saturday, June 29 and Sunday, June 30, from 9:45 am to 6 pm.

Thank you for helping us at our booth in Twin Cities Pride! We'll be at Booth #646, on the lake behind the Stonewall stage.

Location:

Mission Statement

To empower people to choose Fair Trade products (coffee, chocolate, etc.) so global farmers and artisans earn a fair and sustainable living.

Description

Fair Trade Minneapolis needs help. We started on May 6, 2020 & in Nov 2021, we got our 501(c)(3) tax exemption.

To raise awareness of Fair Trade and sales of Fair Trade products, we’re giving Fair Trade Awards to retailers and cafes in Minneapolis that sell two or more Fair Trade products.

We've given out 24 Fair Trade Awards already! On their Fair Trade Award is the number of Fair Trade products that they sell. Be sure to ask an employee, "Which Fair Trade products do you sell?"

Ask this at: Hi-Lo Diner, Lake & Irving, Namaste Cafe, Hell's Kitchen-Minneapolis, Sparrow Cafe, Sam's Market on W 35th, Wedge and Linden Hills Co-op, Kyle's Market at W 36th & Bryant, 36LYN Refuel Station at 36th & Lyndale, Birchwood Cafe, Chowgirls Catering, La La Homemade Ice Cream & Luncheonette, moto-i, Casablanca Foods, UP Coffee Roasters, Bryn Mawr Market, Third Avenue Food Market, Heartfelt at 4306 Upton Ave S, Guse Green Grocer, Heather’s Restaurant, Sam’s Market and Meat at 1532 E 35th St, Fireroast Cafe, Sisters' Sludge Coffee Cafe and Wine Bar, and Tare Market.

Could you please help us count Fair Trade products at more retailers and cafes in Minneapolis, especially those in your neighborhood?

Thank you.
