I’m writing today to let the Notre Dame community know about Badin Halls’ 7th annual Conscious Christmas Handicraft Sale, happening today from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m
. This event showcases fair trade gifts handcrafted in Nepal, many of which are designed by Notre Dame’s own Art and Design students. They spend 10 weeks each summer working with artisans to modernize their products.This year’s sale is even more critical, with 100 percent of proceeds going to rebuilding efforts after last April’s devastating earthquakes there. There is still so much work to be done. Come shop knit hats and headbands, scarves, totes, bed covers and singing bowls and feel good finishing up your holiday shopping while supporting a great cause and the women of Badin who work hard to put it on. Look for the prayer flags directly across from South Dining Hall and enter on the side door.
