The band was playing and the banners waving - slightly sad it was for another celebration altogether!
And our staff were displaying our banner much to the bemusement of passers-by
The Good News
Shoppers came early, few knew about World Fair Trade Day and the fight against poverty but they were very willing to listen and we had our best sales day since last August.
Each customer received a Mary & Martha "Lost Sheep" felt fridge magnet to remind them of two things in particular:
1. The Role of Fair Trade
2. The Way Mary & Martha is fighting poverty through dignified work
Another Year Maybe
We failed to generate any TV or newspaper interest this year ... but we live in hope!
A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who supported WFTD yesterday in Mongolia.
