Chicago, as the largest Fair Trade City in North America, has reached a critical mass of support for fair trade by businesses, government, institutions and individual consumers. We invite you to be part of this growth by attending Globalfest 2012, Chicago Fair Trade’s annual fundraising event on Thursday, October 18th, 2012 at DIRTT (Doing It Right This Time). Support economic development that sustains communities while enjoying an evening in this elegant space overlooking the Chicago River.
Globalfest will feature our fair trade connections to Asia, with appetizers, fair trade wine, music and silent auction. We will learn of Asian producer stories during a brief program that will also include the presentation of Chicago Fair Trade’s fifth Changemaker Award.
Funds raised at this event will help Chicago Fair Trade increase support for fair trade in the metro area, ensuring that producers in developing countries earn a fair wage and affect change in their communities. Through its members, Chicago Fair Trade has a positive impact on over a million fair trade producers worldwide. In addition, your support will help us extend the reach of our programming for schools and youth groups that have touched the lives of over 500 youth last year, creating global citizens for the future.
If you have questions about Globalfest 2012 or Chicago Fair Trade, please contact Nancy Jones, Director at 312-212-1760 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are very excited to be exhibiting this year in the Bhakti Fest Midwest, in Madison, Wisconsin, from June 29 to July 1, 2012.

It embraces ancient and modern sacred wisdom and traditional and non-traditional spiritual practices. The festival is a vehicle for evolution of human consciousness through a heart-centered revolution. Bhakti Fest builds a community of people drawn to follow the path of the heart – a devotional, prayerful, loving, healthful, respectful family.”
