Thank you to all St. Thomas students, faculty, staff and administrators for supporting the annual Fair Trade Holiday Sale Dec. 6. Special thanks to Students for Justice and Peace, coordinators of the sale.

Six fair trade vendors sold more than $4,000 in gifts during the eight-hour sale. Proceeds will benefit cooperatives and communities they support around the world, including the San Lucas Mission in Guatemala, an economic sustainability project on the White Earth Indian Reservation and even a youth program in South Minneapolis.
