What is Fair Trade Holiday Caroling? Walking door to door or performing in any public place…congregation, school play, holiday party, subway station, etc, etc.:
- Sing a few carols
- Read a brief Fair Trade Public Education Script to your audience
- Ask your audience to make a Fair Trade New Year’s Resolution or pledge to buy Fair Trade holiday gifts…together, the thousands of Resolutions we collect in the US and around the world will make a big impact on expanding the market for Fair Trade farmers and artisans.
What songs will we sing? Both traditional carols and the clever, amusing, fabulous Fair Trade carols submitted to Global Exchange’s Fair Trade Holiday Song Contest during the Summer of 2008. A Songbook is included in the Toolkit and there are additional songs you can print out from the website. Congratulations to the winners of the contest!

Have fun making a difference this holiday!
