Join me at Just Christmas this weekend!

This weekend in Edmonton is the 25th annual Just Christmas fair trade market place. Just Christmas is a global marketplace for quality arts, handmade crafts and other goods.

You don’t need to shop at corporate sweatshops, when
you can go to a fair trade giftshop whose products come from fair trade workshops. Clothing, jewelry, art, food and more from around the world await you at this holiday season multicultural shopping and dining experience.

Shop in confidence knowing that your money is supporting the building of he
althy communities around the world.

This year, look forward to hearing world music and stories told in different languages, as well as enjoying food from the international kitchen.

As usual, I’ll be working at the kiosk for Humanserve International which provides relief for Palestinians and Palestinian refugees, and for the first time ever, we’ll be selling graphic novels.

That’s right—copies of Joe Sacco’s funny, tragic, enraging and inspiring acclaimed journalistic graphic novel Palestine based on his experiences in the occupied territories. The only problem with Just Christmas is that there’s very little to buy for the men on your list. Now, with Joe Sacco’s Palestine, you can give them something thrilling, powerful and unforgettable.


Join us Friday night from 5:30 to 9, and Saturday from 9:30 to 4 pm at the Alberta Avenue Community Hall, 92nd Street and 118 Avenue. Parking & wheelchair access are available. If you need the bus, the #5 and the #8 will take you right there. For more information, visit www.justchristmas.org.
