Ethical gifts

Global Village Fair

is an online shopping catalogue that enables you to purchase gifts for friends of family that help people in developing countries by supporting Mothers' Union projects there.

When you give a gift from the catalogue, you are buying a virtual gift. If you choose, for example, 'Honey I'm home', you're resourcing the bee-keeping and mushroom-growing training described in the gift's outline.

You receive a card for each gift you're giving. The card has details of your gift, and comes with an envelope ready for you to personalise and send.

You can use Global Village Fair all year round for birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions.

In December 2011 a wonderful total of £1,282 iwas raised n just one month through Christmas gift buying. Thank you and well done to all who contributed.

Make A Mother's Day

 

provides a range of ethical gifts specifically to mark Mothering Sunday.  Visit www.makeamothersday.org

Each gift gives twice over - a loving, thoughtful gift for the mum or loved one you give it to (or in memory of) , and also a helping hand to mothers and carers, families and communities, through Mothers' Union work. Just 3% covers the actual costs of delivering the assistance to a family in need

Also available are resources for schools, suggestions for worship, and children's activities.
