Fair Trade Halloween

October 31st is nearing and you know what that means - Halloween! It is my favourite holiday - dressing up in costume, carving pumpkins, decorating your home with creepy crawlies and candy! But when it comes to Halloween candy, there is nothing scarier than impoverished cocoa farmers and child labourers.
Halloween is one of those holidays when children (in particular but not exclusively) are free to be creative, imaginative and have fun. Let’s help to ensure that all children around the world are afforded the same opportunity. Go fair trade this Halloween!
Global Exchange can get you started with their Fair Trade is Boo-tiful Kit. The kits will be shipped this week so get your order in now!
