CRS Community Shopping Day with Ten Thousand Villages

  • Ten Thousand Villages Stores Nationwide (map)

Catholic Relief Services announces a national partnership with Ten Thousand Villages!

This year marks the start of a new and exciting partnership for CRS. On Friday, October 16, we will be holding a community shopping event with Ten Thousand Villages stores nationwide. 15% of all customer designated sales will be donated to the CRS Fair Trade Fund to benefit disadvantaged farmers and artisans overseas, and build the fair trade marketplace in the United States.

Established in Pennsylvania nearly 70 years ago, Ten Thousand Villages remains dedicated to enhancing the livelihoods of artisans across the globe. Through building and maintaining long-term buying relationships, this 100% fair trade business provides a sustainable market to artisans who lack economic means within their own communities. The stores carry a wide range of unique, handcrafted products including art and sculpture, jewelry, textiles and home decor.

You can help Catholic Relief Services and Ten Thousand Villages further the fair trade mission by joining us for this awesome shopping event. Visit the Ten Thousand Villages Store Locator to find a store near you or shop on-line on October 16 and use promo code CRS2015.
