Yes, you read that right! Linda Bullard has been volunteering at our Nora store for 10 years. In fact, our Nora location is blessed to have quite a cadre of volunteers who have supported Global Gifts for a decade or more -- attesting to their passion for social justice and also the engaging quality of Global Gift's volunteer program.
Today we celebrate Linda's artistic side. This month, when we announced our "Fill The Windows With Love" Art Contest, Linda put her heart and soul into creating a piece that honors Fair Trade, Sustainability, and the Human Spirit.
Linda's handcrafted retablo features 90% recycled and found objects and cleverly represents a number of fair trade companies, symbols, and themes. When asked what inspired her creation, she wrote:
If you would like to see Linda's "Love letter to Fair Trade" in person, the art contest creations will be displayed in the Nora store's front windows until March 5. Drop by and see all of the other amazing pieces made by fans of fair trade and cast your vote for "Fan Favorite." You might just see Linda there, too!
