Boston screening of The Fair Trade movie: success!

I blogged about a Boston screening here, and apparently, it went very well. Thanks to all who came out in the thunderstorm to see the movie! Here’s a recap from one viewer:

Hi!!!  Saw it, loved it, talked about it, still talking about it, bought it…!

The Screening on Friday at Hope Fellowship was great!  There were 27 people there which was great considering we were experiencing lightning and thunder storms which also made for a cool affect while watching the film.  Our congregation’s BFJN fair trade representative coordinated a lot of nice fair trade snacks & beverages too including (coffee, tea, chocolate, brownies, & bananas…)

There was also a rep from http://www.bostonfaithjustice.org/ who set up a table, handed out fair trade pamphlets, and spoke at the end of the film as well.

All in all it was a successful night!  Everyone seemed to really enjoy the movie (there were laughs & there were tears.)  I bought a copy today online that I’m planning to pass around to friends & co-workers in Boston and I’m going to buy another copy to send to ———‘s family in CO to get the word out there too!  One city at a time… 🙂

Thanks again to Boston Faith and Justice Network and The Crossing for sponsoring this screening, as well as our Travis Hardy for making the contacts.
