Naming the Fair Trade News(letter)

Kitty forwarded me an e-mail from Akron asking for suggestions to rename the current Ten Thousand Villages News newsletter. Below are my submissions:

  • Villages Voice *Current name of Austin’s newsletter
  • Village Voice *I know, awfully close to The Village Voice
  • Fair Trade Voice(s)
  • Voices of Fair Trade
  • Fair Trade Monthly/Weekly
  • Fair Trade Tribune/Herald/Times
  • Villages Tribune/Herald/Times
  • Village Connect
  • Villages Connections

Wish me luck to win the $25 gift card.

::The Village Beat is the chosen newsletter name. It’s submitted by Leonard Wolf, director of information technology.  “This name carries the idea of current news and discussion happening within the Ten Thousand Villages network, the “beat” of Ten Thousand Village. Ideally “The Village Beat” also conveys a sense of movement, interest and energy.”
