My friend Charles Senteio recently forwarded me an announcement from Richard G. Averitt, Co-Founder and CEO of "A Part of Something Big." The company calls itself "a unique and exclusive collection of earth friendly, fair trade, micro-financed and social development goods, that represent a major breakthrough for school and non-profit fundraising."
Before addressing the fundraising possibilities, I found the items on the store intriguing enough to post this blog. If you're a fan of green commerce, this site is worth a visit:
Here is their announcement:
