Ten Thousand Villages of Austin
Ten Thousand Villages of Austin was kind enough to host a benefit day for RST on International Women’s Day, where a percentage of the proceeds from the event was donated to RST to assist our clients.
Ten Thousand Villages is a fair trade, maker-to-market movement, and brick and mortar store, in Austin and in cities across the US, that addresses economic injustice through sale of ethically-sourced handcrafted wares. Every purchase and donation you make directly impacts the life and community of its maker in a developing country. By bringing their products and stories to Ten Thousand Villages’ market through long-term, fair trading relationships, every maker earns a fair, living wage in safe working conditions and is empowered to create what they love.
Thank you for your partnership!
