Those of us who celebrate Christmas may be feeling the shopping season drawing close - or at least be seeing the shops start to put up their Christmas lights - but also may want to feel that their money is doing some good for more people than just their friends and family. So, who can recommend a Fair Trade retailer? Let us have your suggestions, and TBAT will put together a list and post it nearer to Christmas.
It occurs to us too that in these difficult times, many people are short of funds. However, quite a few Slacktivites have mentioned that they enjoy crafts. We were wondering: would anybody who knits, paints, crochets, sculpts or otherwise makes nice things be interested in creating stuff for each other? Our idea was that people seeking handmade gifts could offer to provide the relevant crafter with the materials and postage costs, which would hopefully come to less than the price of a gift, and the crafter could donate their time and hopefully enjoy having a project or two on hand. Does that appeal to anyone?
