I knew the title would get your attention.
Really there is nothing more effective in cheering me up, except maybe a lollipop.
And I have been having a lot of those lately.
But I am serious- there is free chocolate to be had.
At the same time you are getting free stuff - you are also supporting a good cause.
Most people don't realize that most chocolate is produced by underage workers who are mistreated, underpaid, overworked and work in dangerous/hazardous conditions
(please click on the link and read the BBC article).
But not this chocolate. This chocolate is FAIR TRADE
Now to the FREE part.
You all know that Halloween is coming up.
Well, fair-trade global exchange is sponsoring a Reverse-Trick or Treat. "Trick-or-Treaters across the US will unite to help end poverty among cocoa farmers and promote Fair Trade as an alternative by giving Fair Trade chocolate back to adults
while Trick-or-Treating door-to-door in their communities. Each chocolate is attached to a card with information about problems in the cocoa industry and how Fair Trade provides a solution."
Each kit consists of 20-25 pieces of FREE Fair Trade chocolate and information cards.
to learn more! Remember October 13 is the last day to get your free chocolate!
And I won't tell if you cheat and eat one for yourself! I mean reward yourself for taking part in this great cause and spreading the word.
