Support Media's Racing Fair Trade Bananas!
We are embarking on our 3rd year of participation in the Media 5 Mile Race! This year our running team is bigger than ever! We are made up of over over a dozen members: 4 people running in banana costumes with Fair Trade logos, 5 people running in Fair Trade t-shirts and several more who are volunteerting with the Race in other capacities. If you are interested in joining our team, please let us know, there are still spots available to participate with us!
Our involvement with the Race is to foster a sense of Community, and to raise awareness of Fair Trade in Media. We are currently advocating for the restaurants in Media to bring in and use more Fair Trade ingredients. To this, we are seeking donations to help us provide these restaurants with the resources needed to reach this goal.
The Media Fair Trade Committee is run solely by volunteers who are proud to be active world citizens by educating about and promoting the Fair Trade movement. This economic model provides a fair, living wage to small, independent farmers and producers in developing nations. The simple purchase of Fair Trade products can address poverty in the developing world.
We work to educate the community about Fair Trade, and any donation you would be willing to make would be a great help to our cause! You can learn more about who we are and what we do by visiting our website or our Facebook page. We sincerely thank you for your generosity!
