Nepal Earthquake Relief

nepal earthquake relief
We are deeply disheartened to see the effects of the recent earthquake in Nepal. Many of our dearest fair trade artisan groups work in Nepal and news of the damage has been trickling in from all of them. We are happy to say that so far no lives have been lost, but many have lost their homes and workplaces. We’ve compiled a list of the news we’ve received from our artisan partners as well as several funds that will go directly to helping the artisans as they begin to rebuild their lives.
