Patty has been a volunteer at Global Gifts in Bloomington since March, 2014. She is a student and Bloomington High School South. Her sense of humor always makes working with her a fun day at the store!
We asked her more about her volunteering experience:
Why do you think Fair Trade is important?
Patty - "It helps people to develop their own businesses. They wouldn't have necessarily had that opportunity without Fair Trade. I think that's important."
What do you like about volunteering at Global Gifts?
Patty - "I think it's an important cause and I think that it's very valuable to spread it to the Bloomington community."
What is your favorite product?
Patty - "Ooooh! I'm gonna say the tagua nut animal figurines. They are an ethical alternative to ivory. They're pretty cute too!"
