Shout Out to friends at Fair Trade Sports & the Fair Trade Federation

I've mentioned before I am just warming up to this social media/infectious marketing thing.  I really like having people tell me that this blog is useful to them, but I worry I don't have enough time to tend to it.  I'm learning, though, a great thing about blogging is that sometimes all you have to do is let your readers know what others--especially friends and colleagues--are saying! 

Like today I see that Scott at Fair Trade Sports is helping Carmen at the Fair Trade Federation promote the upcoming conference to be held in Austin next month.   I'm definitely going to be there and Scott knows I'll be toting my ibook around proudly sporting a RESPECT sticker. Maybe by April 4 I'll be settled on a presidential candidate and can display a campaign sticker too...but I digress.

The point is, today instead of having to come up with something brilliant to say, I ask you to stop reading this blog and check out the sites of Fair Trade Sports or Fair Trade Federation to learn about how the April conference can help us all build the Fair Trade movement together. Spend some time on those sites too, learning about all the great products available to you and the people who made them under fair conditions!

  1. Hi Jackie,
    I work part-time doing communications with La Siembra, an Ottawa-Canada based coop selling fair-trade, organic cocoa and sugar products. I've been researching what's happening with fair trade and social media and haven't found much out there so your blog is nice find. I have subscribed!
