Seeing the frenzy that came out of Black Friday at big box stores across the United States, it is clear that many are more concerned with deals than with the true cost behind those products.

Where do you stand?

Today is #GivingTuesday, an international movement of giving. Will you be one of the millions around the world who are giving back today and making an impact? Let’s find out.

When deciding how to give back, would you rather…:

giving_donate OR        
giving_GOM OR        giving_landfill
giving_FTstore OR        giving_sweatshop

The choices are clear and we know where you stand. You care about workers and artisans getting a fair wage. You care that the products you buy are made with sustainable materials. You care about organizations that put the people and planet over profits.

So, this #GivingTuesday, stand up to corporations, safeguard our democracy, and save the planet by donating to Global Exchange. Connect someone you care about to Global Exchange – Give the Gift of Membership. And pledge to shop Fair Trade this holiday season to ensure fair wages.

When we stand together, we can make a difference.

But wait! There is one more great way to give back and get a great gift – the Global Exchange holiday auction. Find some great gifts for loved ones, or yourself! All proceeds go to support Global Exchange. Bidding open until Dec. 12 at 8PM PST.
