One Day of Peace! What an amazing idea!

Hello!  As you may know, F.A.C.T.S. is committed to transforming the world.  And because of this dedication we cannot ignore it when we come across amazing people who share the vision of a better world for everyone.  Take a look at this organization’s website http://www.peaceoneday.org and check out the video below.

From the site,

To some it’s just a single day. But to us, 21 September is a 24-hour platform forlife-saving activities around the world and an opportunity for individuals – particularly young people – to become involved in the peace process. We hope that our call for a Global Truce on Peace Day 2012 will help to institutionalise Peace Day and engage unprecedented numbers of people, regardless of national, cultural, political or religious identity, in the peaceful observance of 21 September.

They are doing important work and we should all support it in whatever way we can.  We can all be a part of a movement towards a more peaceful world. Let’s all join together and make this happen!

Blind Shopping & A New Vision For Fashion

Because we realize that the values we, at F.A.C.T.S., stand for are somewhat complex, when we try to say it all in a paragraph, or even a few pages, we decided to start a Video Series on discussions about our values. We have neatly packed in our ideas into what we hope are brief but informative and easy-to-understand video logs. We start our Video Series with the first part of our tag line “Reforming Fashion,” and what we mean by that.  We cover commodification of fashion items and how we are so far-removed from what we buy that it’s hard to care about the conditions under which are clothes are made.

Please bear with us through the choppiness of this video. We could not get it started till past midnight last night, and we were both very exhausted, so it wasn’t as smooth as we hope our next ones will be! We welcome your comments on the topics we discuss and we encourage these videos to open conversation. We are always open to thoughts and suggestions, whether they agree with us or not. 🙂
