Do your holiday shopping tonight in Ten Thousand Villages

Have a long holiday shopping list? Get unique, handcrafted items at Muhlenburg College tonight at the Ten Thousand Villages Festival.

This Festival is an opportunity to buy beautiful, hand-made holiday gift items produced by artisans in developing nations; and, more importantly, an opportunity to support the principle of fair trade. Fair trade means that the artisans are paid a fair wage for their work. Ten Thousand Villages is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide vital, fair income to artisans around the world by marketing their handicrafts and telling thier stories in North America. By carrying out their mission, Ten Thousand Villages contributes to job creation and poverty alleviation in the developing nations.

The sale is today from 10 am- 8 pm at Muhlenberg College in the Seegers Union. Parking will be reserved in the circle just in front of the union. Check it out!
