Ten Thousand Village’s 2015 Ignite Sustainability 

Mallon Lonnquist Watrous & Morris was a proud sponsor of Ten Thousand Village’s 2015 Ignite Sustainability fundraiser. Ten Thousand Villages is the Cherry Creek Chamber’s Nonprofit of the year for 2015. This event is Ten Thousand Villages’ annual fundraiser, which draws attention to the stability Fair Trade creates for artisans around the world.


Ten Thousand Villages is an exceptional source for unique handmade gifts representing the diverse cultures of artisans in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East. One of the world’s largest fair trade organizations and a founding member of the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO), the company strives to improve the livelihood of tens of thousands of disadvantaged artisans in 38 countries.

Ten Thousand Villages accomplishes this by establishing a sustainable market for handmade products in North America, and building long term buying relationships in places where skilled artisan partners lack opportunities for stable income. Product sales help pay for food, education, healthcare and housing for artisans who would otherwise be unemployed or underemployed.

Ten Thousand Villages is an independent nonprofit, charitable organization (501(c)3, with an independent, nine member board of directors. All sales revenue generated by Ten Thousand Villages and any surplus earned by operations is retained within Ten Thousand Villages. Surpluses are used to increase purchases from artisans and to finance the growth of Ten Thousand Villages retail network.
