Spring for Fair Trade Chocolate this Easter

Just a reminder to look for fair trade chocolate to fill those Easter/Resurrection Day baskets. How hypocritical is it to give this candy to our little ones in the name of Jesus, when our children overseas are slaving away to provide this product? Many of our children would be better off with healthier treats anyway. Perhaps you can involve your children in a letter writing campaign to companies that have not signed a commitment to end abusive child labor practices and unsustainable farming practices. Check out this article that circulated by Global Exchange around Valentine's Day to find out what companies care about our children and which companies care only about making money. Remember money talks and B.S. walks. Let your green dollars to the talking.
