**Joobles Giveaway!!**

Joobles from Fair Indigo are some of the cutest little hand-knit stuffed animals I've ever seen. Seriously. Every time my daughter picks up her Mel, she gives him a big hug. It's adorable. But Joobles are more than just cute.

Each animal is made with eco-friendly dyes and organic cotton grown in Peru. They are made with cotton grown without the use of pesticides, insecticides, herbicides, fertilizers, or other chemicals. How can you not get on board with that?

I'm so in love with Icy the Penguin. And Jiffy the Giraffe. And of course Mel.

What's even more amazing about Joobles is that they are hand crafted under fair trade conditions, providing work and hope to hundreds of rural and urban Peruvians. Fair trade is an important movement dedicated to paying workers fair wages.

And here's where today's giveaway comes in. One winner will win the Jooble of their choice**! Here's the catch: to enter, go to Fair Indigo's website. First click on the "About Fair Trade" link to learn more about fair trade, because we believe it is a worthy cause, and want you to know all about it!!

Once you've read up on fair trade, go ahead and take a look at the darling Joobles. Then come back and comment, letting us know which Jooble you love the most. If you're like me, it will be hard to choose a favorite!

Good Luck!


** Since Joobles are handmade and oh-so-popular, your first choice may not be available. So pick 2 favorites!!

*Please leave your name with the comment, we will get contact information after you win.
*Duplicate comments or comments without a name will be ignored.
*One entry per person, please.
*Giveaway will be open for comments until Midnight PST Wednesday, January 21st.
*Winner will be picked at random and announced Thursday Morning.
*Winners must contact us within one week of the giveaway closing or a new winner will be chosen.

Fair Trade is an alternative way of doing business - one that builds equitable, long-term partnerships between consumers in North America and producers in developing regions!!

My faves are Calley the Cat and Mel the Monkey. Joobles look SO soft and squishy :) I was hoping to win one of these for Christmas...here's hoping for another chance-keeping fingers and toes crossed :)

Thanks for a great giveaway.

Fair Trade is giving farmers and workers a true living wage in exchange for their work, which can then sustain them and also create opportunities for social and economic development. It eradicates and ends sweatshops and the sweatshop mentality allowing every farmer and worker to be treated with respect and honor which then makes for a happier, saner and more peaceful world.

I soooo love all these precious Joobies! : ))) Especially Icy the Penguin and Pip the Dog! : ))

Thanks so much for this amazing give~away! : )))
