Make Trade Fair
Make Trade Fair appears to be an organization advocating more balanced international trade between rich and poor, developing nations. Their current campaign offers up some famous people and tries to illustrate through photographs a visual sense of what it's like for poor countries to get unwanted goods dumped on them by wealthier nations.
Oh who am I kidding. I've hit the photo lottery because they've got images of the Finn Brothers surrounded by coffee beans and Colin Firth drenched in coffee. And yes, Colin's wearing a white shirt or two. There are some other big names, Michael Stipe (REM), Chris Martin (Coldplay), Alanis Morrisette, Thom Yorke (Radiohead), Antonio Banderas, and others. But I only have eyes for Neil. And Tim. And oh yes, Colin.
