Update on Chatsworth train crash

Wednesday, April 15th, 2009

Racheal Mofya

If you have been reading this blog for a while, you will remember Racheal Mofya, a Zambian exchange student who was injured badly in the September 2008 Chatsworth Metrolink train crash. She was also an intern with Anti-Body. Tamara and Shelby spoke of their deep concern for Racheal, with all of the injuries that she had from the crash. Miraculously, she survived, and the L.A. Times has a story on her progress today.

Everyone at The Fair Trade movie continues to wish her a complete recovery.

Lowell Film Festival a success

Monday, April 13th, 2009

Lowell Film Festival logoWe heard from the organizers of the Lowell Film Festival, which happened last weekend:

We had a fabulous turnout for your film, and for the entire festival in general. It was a rousing success! We had so much fun giving out your samples of lip balm — everyone was so surprised and delighted to receive them. What a nice touch it was to the event.

I made a personal introduction to the film, and got quite moved doing so. I have been so inspired by your story, Tamara, and was so grateful that you and Lauralee chose to share it with the world.

We also found coverage of the festival (including mention of The Fair Trade movie) in the Nashua Telegraph.

Thanks for all the support!
