Moms Make a World of Difference + Fair Trade Products Giveaway


This week, I'm really excited about writing a post to talk about Fair Trade. In case you are not familiar with it, Fair Trade is a global movement to alleviate poverty in the developing world, while ensuring consumers quality products that improve lives and protect the environment. Everyday purchases that bear the Fair Trade Certified™ logo come from farmers and workers in the developing world who are justly compensated, allowing them to build sustainable businesses that positively influence their communities.



With Mother's Day just around the corner, I thought I would help spread the word about these wonderful Fair Trade moms. Fair Trade Moms are strong, determined, and the heart of their families. Every coffee bean, cacao pod, and rose they harvest is filled with love. This love fuels their drive for a better future for their kids and their communities.


Coming from Honduras, I personally have seen the hard work some of these strong woman endure every day in order to support their families. What amazes me the most is the dedication and passion they put into whatever they are working on,  always with a smile on their face and a great attitude.


Meet Maria Cera, She harvests coffee cherries from her plot, which her community sells as women’s coffee. She is currently passing her coffee knowledge down to her 13-year-old niece, Maria Edith, who enjoys helping her aunt plant seedlings on the farm. The Aprocassi Coffee Cooperative in Northern Peru, where Maria has been a member since 2009, has put a large emphasis on education, gender equality and economic stability, encouraging its members to diversify their income through microloans and training.

  2. Every Mother's day, my mom visits her grandkids in another state, so I relax and hang out with my dad. But her belated Mother's day entails flowers, a nice dinner, and a movie :-)
