Fair Trade Soirée Équitable – a real succès!

Picture this: May 10th, 2014. World Fair Trade Day. More than 100 people in one beautiful Fair Trade venue: Bridgehead Roastery

Folks in the region of Canada’s capital have done it again! We could not have hoped for a better crowd of people with whom to spend the evening of World Fair Trade Day.  The Crystal Coasts band started the evening off with their fine tunes while the bidding war on the silent auction was already seeing some action and negotiation. Jen Hunter, founder of The Learning Catalyst shared with us some motivational words. Robert Fox, Executive Director of Oxfam Canada encouraged us to be more bold and to consume less. Roastery tours, a powerful thematic photo booth, smiling FTOÉ volunteers and tasty food. All of this made possible thanks to our very generous sponsors.

Quoi demander de plus?

La Soirée, ayant pour but de non seulement aider à sensibiliser la communauté au commerce équitable, était aussi une façon d’amasser des sous afin d’appuyer FTOÉ dans ses démarches au cours de l’année. Grâce à ses fonds, nous pourrons continuer à maintenir notre site internet, à imprimer des produits de promotion, à participer à des évènements et à surtout continuer de solliciter les conseillers de la ville d’Ottawa afin d’obtenir le statut de ville équitable.

If you haven’t done so already, join us on social media!

See you all for #FTSE2015! Until then, let’s keep the Fair Trade movement growing strong! #PowerOfYou #TonMondeTonChoix!
