You can make the world better, simply with a smart shopping choice.
Extreme poverty usually begins in one of two places: a lack of living-wage jobs and corruption. The Fair Trade movement aims to fight both causes of poverty. Behind every product on JesusEconomy.org is a story of people who can now provide for their families because they are making fair, livable wages. And their workplaces have strong ethical principles.
When you shop fair trade on JesusEconomy.org, you're part of the story of life transformation for people from extreme poverty situations.
At the bottom of every product page on JesusEconomy.org, you see icons like these because your shopping both creates jobs and funds our ongoing efforts.
Shopping on JesusEconomy.org means being part of the story of a new type of commerce, one where every dollar is reinvested in the mission. Built into our prices is the cost for the product and a profit margin we reinvest in our ongoing efforts via our Operations Fund.
If you donate $100 to the developing world, we send the full $100. We call this the 100% to Developing World Model. But we still have other costs affiliated with your donation, such as setting up the project, spreading the word about our projects, credit card fees, travel to check on projects, and this website. We help cover these costs by reinvesting profit from your fair trade product purchase into our Operations Fund, which is specifically designated for our domestic costs.
We reinvest every last dollar into the movement of creating jobs and churches. This is a story of innovating to break the cycle of poverty. We're here to empower you to be part of a better story.
This is the story of a new way of shopping, one that transforms the world. On JesusEconomy.org, when you give and when you shop, you can help others.
Your gift from the JesusEconomy.org Fair Trade Shop empowers artisans. And it furthers the movement of creating jobs and churches in the developing world.
This Cyber Monday, be part of the story of people defeating poverty. Tell a better story with your holiday shopping. #GiftingStories

John Barry here, CEO of Jesus' Economy. Thank you to everyone who supported Jesus' Economy on #GivingTuesday. And thank you to all of you who shopped fair trade during Black Friday through Cyber Monday (and even into Giving Tuesday). We're creating a new global, spiritual and physical economy for those that need it most. Here's what we're accomplishing together.
For all of you who shop fair trade on JesusEconomy.org, your shopping counts for transforming lives. You're looking consumerism in the face and saying, "We can do better than this. I can bless people with great and thoughtful gifts, while blessing those from extreme poverty situations."
Thanks to you, we're creating or sustaining hundreds of jobs this year. Without you shopping fair trade at JesusEconomy.org, this wouldn't be possible. We're helping artisans lift themselves out of poverty, simply by how we shop. So thank you!
In one of the most impoverished places in the world, Jesus' Economy is planting churches and meeting basic needs. And later, once enough funds are raised, we will launch an economic development initiative in the same region.
And right now, we're giving clean water to the thirsty. And we're bringing the living water of Jesus to those who have never heard his name. All in the same communities! We're combining meeting basics needs with church planting. (This work is so impactful that Red Letter Christians recently featured it as a case study.)
What does this look like? Jesus' economy in action. Together, we're doing this. So thank you!
Every time you give and shop with Jesus' Economy, you're being part of the solution to the problems our world is facing. You're making our world a better place. And that inspires me. Together, we're showing the world what it means to live Jesus' economy. So thank you!
Simply, thanks for living Jesus' economy with us. We're grateful to be part of this movement with you.
