WEAR FAIR
Overview: WEAR FAIR is a non-profit organization that sells licenses to apparel manufacturing companies, guaranteeing their products to be produced child labor free. The profit will finance educational programs in developing countries. Its major purpose is to reduce child labor statistics on a global scale by employing the indirect financial support of the western middle class.

In our globalized world: (1) 246 million children are child laborers, and (2) people are better than ever informed and willing to contribute to the fate of these children. WEAR FAIR connects these two groups by giving the latter a chance to improve the living conditions of the world's poorest, while fulfilling their personal need for clothing.
