Happy Thanksgiving to all. Last month CACE held an Artisan Leadership workshop with our partner Minga Peru. We had our artisan friends make giant egrets as part of an exercise in creating new products and working in teams. Please support our work with a donation on Giving Tuesday, Nov. 29 at www.AmazonAlive.net. The Gates Foundation will provide a 50% match to donations made to us through GlobalGiving on that day as long as matching funds last. The clock starts at midnight on Nov. 29. Thanks for your support.

I stopped by the Fair Trade Winds store in the Ballard district of Seattle while enjoying a week long vacation in the Pacific Northwest. It's one of five great stores owned bt the Culler family in different parts of the US. I always enjoy meeting them at meetings of the Fair Trade Federation.
