WFTO Asia Invites you!

Let's take a bit of a break from the beauty blogging to share something with you. I received this invitation a few days ago but since my dashboard is acting weird, i wasn't able to post this.

I was so intrigued with the 100% guilt-free shopper that they are promoting. I was just thinking a few days ago that i have been spending so much & i do feel guilty with those things that i bought impulsively. Now WFTO is giving us a chance to change our shopping experience because every peso that you will be spending in this trade fair can make a change.

World Fair Trade Organization Asia (WFTO Asia) would like to invite 

you to the WORLD FAIR TRADE DAY: 100% GUILT FREE SHOPPER campaign 

launch on May 14, 2011 6 pm at Shangri La Plaza Grand Atrium, 

Mandaluyong City.


The 100% GUILT FREE SHOPPER campaign aims to inform the consumers that
they have the power to eradicate poverty, stop child and forced
labor, advocate for gender equality, support sustainability and
capacity building, safeguard the environment, promote equality in
trade, and open opportunities for health and education with a single,
conscientious purchase.

Many celebrities like Emma Watson, Sir Paul Mc Cartney and Annie
Lennox have been active supporters of Fair Trade. As part of the 100%
Guilt Free Shopper campaign, WFTO Asia will be introducing 12
personalities who’ll be the Ambassadors of Fair Trade here in the
Philippines. They are the following:

a. Jim Paredes (Musician, EDSA People Power Icon)
b. Patty Laurel (Model, Host, Preschool teacher)
c. Sanya Smith and Queenie Smith (Model and Singer)
d. Alyanna Martinez (Fashion Stylist)
e. Rosanna Aranaz (Fashion Blogger, Littlemissdressup.com)
f. Joaquin Valdes (Filmmaker)
g. Lawrence Antaran (Graphic Artist & Illustrator)
h. Yeb Sano and Desiree Llanos Dee (Commissioner and Advocate from the
Climate Change Commission)
i. Fran Tobias (DJ, RX 93.1)
j. Cathy Untalan (Miss Earth Foundation Exec Director, Beauty Queen)
k. Rick Manzano (Blogger, ProjectManila.com)
l. Jeremy Callegher & Shun Sasaki (Fair Trade volunteers from
France and Japan)

The campaign targets 1,000,000 switchers in Asia by the end of the
year. 1,000,000 people who realized that thoughtless buying isn’t
enough. 1,000,000 people who believes that they can use the power of
their purchase to change the lives of millions of disadvantaged
communities all over the world.

73 Countries. 5 Regions. 1 World united to BEAT POVERTY, BEAT CLIMATE
CHANGE, BEAT DISCRIMINATION, BEAT EXPLOITATION, BEAT IGNORANCE.

I might be dropping by since i don't have anything special planned this weekend.

Hope you all have a great day,hunnies!
