This year is another big year for Hand Up Events, that we are a social action business and so happy to be working in the ethical market place, where everyone pretty much supports each other. Not in an annoying way but in the way that the main objective of your work is to help and support others. Maybe it is the feel good factor too but is about knowing and feeling empowered to make small changes to help and support others and at the same time is a mutual benefit. But in essence it is about respect for humanity. People are looking for equality and Fair Trade at least addresses the need for people to trade, not aid. We are very excited that World Fair Trade Tartan developing sustainable global connections around the globe and that our events continue to develop with great people around us. More information soon, check out more information about the tartan journey on World Fair Trade Tartan tab.
