“If you are committed to truth, committed to love, then you are committed to fairness. If you really love somebody then you hate that they are being treated unfairly.”
This is a statement that resonates with me. I want to treat people fairly and I hate it when I see injustices in the world. Sometimes though, figuring out what to do about it can be a daunting task. How can I, being only 1 person, make a difference in this world? This blog is an answer to that question. I believe in the philosophy that “every purchase matters’ and I believe that we can make statements and make change with the way we spend our money. Buying local and buying Fair Trade is a way for us ensure that the people who produce the things buy are treated fairly. It’s a commitment to fairness and all of us can participate in it.
