|Please Help One World Goods Continue our Fair Trade Mission Dear friends of One World Goods. We hope this message finds you and yours healthy and safe. Your patronage over the past 33 years has made One World Goods a destination marketplace for unique handmade goods from around the world.|
More importantly, your purchases at the store support our Fair Trade Mission. Every sale helps provide our network of disadvantaged artisans and farmers a market for their goods, fair and prompt payment for their work, and a safe and empowering work environment.
The COVID-19 health crisis has had a significant negative financial impact on our organization. We temporarily closed our doors mid-March and have only recently re-opened with reduced store hours. We anticipate that it may take months, if not longer, for sales to return to prior levels.
We rely on sales during the spring and summer to purchase goods to sell during the November and December holiday season, so the issues we are facing today threaten to cascade into the crucial holiday season and beyond.
Please consider making a donation to One World Goods to help during this time of crisis. Every order we place directly helps our artisan partners. We need to place holiday orders soon to maintain the level of support they count on going into the busiest time of the year.
Since our founding we’ve never needed outside help to maintain our mission. Your contribution will allow One World Goods to purchase items for the upcoming holiday season. We are counting on your passion for One World Goods to help us maintain our support of vulnerable international artisans.
Thank you so much!
