Blessing Baskets

“Thank you Whole Foods. Thank you for our new class room!” Those are the words of a song written for Whole Foods Market by students in Ghana Africa.  The school was built because Whole Foods Market customers bought Blessing Baskets. Thank you for helping us weave hope into the world one basket at a time! To see the global chain reaction you helped start, click here. Note: These great baskets aren’t available in all of our stores. Sorry! Look for them in the Midwest, North Atlantic, Northeast, Rocky Mountain and Florida. Learn more about The Blessing Basket Project and their mission to pay weavers multiple times more than Fair Trade wages for their baskets — calling it "prosperity wages.” Every basket they sell helps create sustainable jobs and helps reduce poverty in the villages they serve.

I am glad to see and hear how much has been accomplished already by the Blessing Basket project and Whole Foods' participation in the program. What more can I do?
