Community Shopping Events are special fundraising events in our store. During a specified three hour period we will donate 20% of our sales to a community organization. These events are are win-win-win situation! The local host organization raises funds, One World Goods generates sales and reaches new customers, and the farmers and artisans who produced the products sold receive a fair wage for their work, safe working conditions and a host of other benefits built into the principles of fair trade.
