CHRISTMAS CAN [STILL] CHANGE THE WORLD. THIS YEAR GIVE PRESENCE.

While deciding on the perfect gift for your loved ones this season, look for the Fair Trade Logo on the product. That will insure the perfect gift for both your loved one and to the family that produced the product. Is the person you're shopping for an avid coffee drinker? Look for the Fair Trade Logo on a bag of delicious coffee at your local market. When you give a Fair Trade gift, you are insuring that most of the purchase price goes directly to the farmer that grew the coffee beans rather than to a multi-national corporation.
THIS YEAR GIVE PRESENCE. For more info:

Father Roy Bourgeois, founder of the School of the Americas Watch, spoke at the First United Methodist Church in Endicott, New York.
Fr. Bourgeois spoke about his history of civil disobedience, his work in Latin America and his possible ex-communication from the Catholic Church for his outspoken advocacy of allowing women to become priests.

"They tell us they're teaching democracy. We say 'How do you teach democracy through the barrel of a gun?'" - Fr. Roy Bourgeois

Who made MY Mend Handbag? LAMUNU IRENE

MEND Explanation Video from MEND on Vimeo.


Who made MY Mend Handbag? LAMUNU IRENE
I purchased a Mend Handbag at an Invisible Children event last year in Austin, TX. Inside my handbag was a small handwritten note that simply said LAMUNU. After wondering for a year, I now have the pleasure to know who she is and cherish my handbag as Lamunu Irene cherishes her life.
