Every fundraiser benefits not only those who are holding it, but many artisan groups around the world and countless individuals and families. They are one piece of the puzzle that help individuals find dignified, life breathing employment. I love that.
This spring we held 11 fundraisers and helped families, groups and individuals raise, on average, $465 during the course of one day! One adoptive family raised $1306! That is HUGE!! Each year, each season, even, our averages are going up. We couldn't be more excited about that.
Now that our spring fundraisers have closed, its time to start thinking about the fall and you get to be the first to hear our dates!!

Our fundraisers are simple and hassle free. All purchases made during the course of the day of the fundraiser go to benefit the host's goal. Up to 30% of the purchase price goes straight into their pocket! We keep track, we do the selling, we do the shipping. It's awesome.
So, please help us spread the word about our fundraisers. It's a fantastic way to raise awareness of human trafficking and fair trade. It's a fabulous way to be encouraged as you pursue goals of your non-profit or family and it helps DFC grow and thrive to be able to help that many more artisan groups.
