Project Report | Mar 15, 2011
Families in Mexico provide items for web store

By Tom Benjamin | Executive Director

The web site will be officially launched this spring.

We have purchased over $1,000 of items for the web site and are expecting deliveries to begin next month. These purchases have already made a difference to families in Mexico and Peru.

The following is the introduction to a first hand report from a family in in southern México in the state of Oaxaca and in the Zapotec pueblo of Teotitlán del Valle, a small town about 20 miles from the state capital of Oaxaca de Juárez.

“Hola! My name is Teresa. I wanted you to know that I and my family made your new purse. We certainly hope you like it, and will continue to enjoy it for many years to come.It is likely that one of the reasons you chose this bag was because you enjoy knowing more about the people who make the things you buy and how they are made. This flyer will tell you a bit about me and my family, about where we live, and how we made your purse using all natural dyes and wool produced locally. We are proud of our work and would like to thank you personally for your support and interest in us.” Read the attached story.
