Fair Trade Friday exists as an avenue for women to empower women. We are tackling poverty through dignified job opportunities in Jesus’ name. 100% of the proceeds from Fair Trade Friday support the artisans and their families – thousands of women, men, and children around the world. Fair Trade Friday is a ministry of Mercy House Global, a non-profit organization based in Magnolia, Texas.

Every quarter the themed Grace Case arrives on your doorstep with handcrafted heirlooms from around the world and a small photographic journal that Ann Voskamp has written to personally invite you into a life-changing story of how these heirlooms have changed the world – and continue to, in your hands and life – complete with quotes, tear-out printables, and inspiring visual story.
The first time we received a big order from Fair Trade Friday in Zambia, over 60 women cheered, screamed, danced, rejoiced. Because to them, it’s not just some extra money in their pockets to feed their kids or pay school fees.
It’s empowerment, it’s someone who says “I believe in you. I am with you.” It gives the message to these ladies, overlooked and oppressed by society, that they are worthy. That they have something beautiful to offer the world, a skill and a story that can inspire women thousands of miles away.
