Geeeet Reaadddy for Fair Trade Month!!

Thanks everyone for coming out to all of our events last week!

We made $45 at our Cold Stone fundraiser and that will be going to Padres Contra el Cancer!

Volleyball last week was really fun (even though we lost) but it’s going to be EVEN BETTER tonight!
Join us at 10 PM Tonight (9/26) in SW Rec to own our opponents and score your very own “Recuro Ballers” team t-shirt!

October is Fair Trade Month! To celebrate, we will be starting off the month with a screening of the documentary “Black Gold” on Oct. 4 (6:30 in RNK 110).

Our Fair Trade Fair is soon to come. From Oct. 10-12 We will be tabling in Plaza of the Americas passing around Fair Trade chocolate chip cookies (made by yours truly and the rest of eboard). Come out and learn about how your consumer choices affect the lives of those picking the beans for your coffee and chocolate.

On Oct. 11 we will be hosting 3 amazing speakers for our Annual Recurso Fair Trade Panel in the Ocora Room in Pugh Hall (6:30 PM)
We will be presenting:
Kevin Ward: the former Fair Trade Federation Chairman
Marty Mesh: one of the founders of the Agricultural Justice Project
Laurie Wilkins: who owns and operates Gainesville’s local Fair Trade crafts store Alternatives

Stay tuned for more and have a wonderful week!!
