Global Issues Take Action Project

Last year I was in Global Issues at school and we had to take part in a project where we could help a world issue not only locally, but internationally. A couple friends and I decided to work with fair trade items after hearing about the horrible building collapse in Bangladesh. We made a video to raise awareness on sweatshops and unfair labour as well as having a booth at lunch selling fair trade items. We were lucky enough to work with MCIC to promote the benefits of shopping fair trade. They gave us fair trade clothing and food items to promote and sell for a week at school and amazingly we raised over $400.00 to donate to an organization of our choice.  Check out our site!
