$50 Gift Card Giveaway to Trade as One [closed]

It’s here. It’s time – 31 Days of Giveaways! I figured the best way to start out my first event is to sponsor my first giveaway of the month myself! Trade as One is an amazing organization that empowers those less fortunate to do what they love and make a living doing it. They have beautiful hand-made items. It’s going to be hard to choose what to buy on this site.  


Fair trade seeks to transform the lives of poor producers in the developing world by enabling them to use their skills and resources to work their way out of poverty. Our experience has been that the poor don’t want handouts — they want jobs.


We live in a world with two crises. The first is the crisis of extreme poverty that affects much of the developing world. The second is the crisis of meaning brought about by vacuous consumerism that has left much of the developed world with a different sort of poverty. We believe Fair Trade is a way to alleviate both.


Our story is of people from different parts of the world, deciding that they want to see consumer spending used to fix problems instead of create them. We passionately believe that dignified job creation is the only long term way to break cycles of poverty.


We’re diverse, we’re dedicated, we’re experienced, we’re in love (with the idea of a business that brings people together and makes the world look more like the one we think will one day arrive).

Start looking now because if you win this giveaway, you will be getting a $50 gift card! That’s going to be pretty easy to spend. All giveaways in this event will go for one week – EXCEPT this one. This one, because it is specially brought to you by me, will last the ENTIRE month of August. I want all of my readers to have the opportunity as such an amazing prize.

**For extra entries you will see promotion for MyAndroidDevelopment’s website. My love is in the beginning stages of his creation & I thought this would be a great opportunity for him to get some exposure – please only follow if you’re interested in his content**
