Global Gifts is a nonprofit fair trade shop that has been located here in the Short North in Columbus since March 2014. They offer artisan-made items from over 40 different countries. Artisans, farmers, and producers are guaranteed a fair wage in advance, safe working conditions, gender parity, there is no child labor, no sweatshops, and all items are produced in ethical and environmentally sustainable ways.
From May 1-5, Global Gifts will be hosting the Bunyaad Fair Trade Rug Event – a 4 day event in which hundreds of hand-knotted fair trade rugs made by artisans in Pakistan will fill their store. Representatives from the Bunyaad organization will be here the entire time to teach us all about the rug-making process and how this economic opportunity helps improve lives in Pakistan!
Columbus Gives Back is excited to invite you to volunteer with us for setting up and tearing down for this event.
**IMPORTANT NOTE: Volunteers must be able to lift and carry moderately heavy items.**
