WFTD is an international celebration and promotion of Fair Trade, with supporters in more than 80 countries worldwide and is the largest Fair Trade event in North America. Invite your friends and family and join us in supporting WFTD on Saturday, May 11th at the UNA-USA’s Midpeninsula Chapter’s United Nations Association Gift Shop to raise our voices and support fair trade.
We will recognize this important day by:

- Highlighting our fair trade offerings with placards and posters that explain the artisans, their work and stories.
- Having fair trade items available for purchase such as hand knit, fair trade alpaca finger puppets, jewelry, scares, decorative items.
