Fair Trade Olive Wood Products to Benefit CURE International
And, we believe in building sustainable communities. You can help us with this mission by purchasing our Fair Trade products and supporting artisans across the world to be sustainable producers.
And, by purchasing these products you’ll be supporting children in need. 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale of our Fair Trade olive wood products support CURE, a nonprofit dedicated to helping children across the globe.
“CURE proudly supports the local economies in the countries we serve. These fine olive wood products are sourced from a third generation family-run business in Bethlehem. The olive wood tree is a very slow growing tree, and must be over 150 years before it is pruned. The tree is never damaged. Pruning is very important every year so new branches grow. From these branches, the olive wood products are made,” said Paul Goldsmith, Vice President of Marketing, CURE International.
Founded in 1996 by an orthopedic surgeon, CURE International has helped millions of children suffering from disease and disabilities in over 30 countries. The first hospital was established in Kenya and was dedicated to the treatment of children with physical disabilities.
Kids who might never have received treatments for illnesses like spina bifida, brain tumors, and clubfoot now have hope. In 2012, CURE passed 2,000,000 total patient visits. That’s 2,000,000 plus children who have a new lease on life and a brilliant future, thanks to CURE.
What could be better than gifting a Fair Trade, handmade item from a local artisan and having the proceeds of that sale going directly to children in need? That’s the true spirit of Christmas.
We whole-heartedly support CURE and its mission. And we are so pleased that in this season of giving, we can in a small way help CURE help kids.
And you can help too. Help millions of sick children by shopping at Farmview Market for our wonderful Fair Trade products. Remember, 100% of the proceeds goes directly to CURE.
