Fair Trade - National

The Raise the Bar Hershey Campaign brand jamming contest entries are AMAZING!  They are clever, thought-provoking, sometimes heart-wrenching, and sometimes hilarious.  One of the finalist videos even features a couple of very cute kids.  

The mock Hershey ads, slogans and videos call on Hershey to eliminate child and forced labor from its cocoa supply chain.

Don’t miss out on seeing for yourself!  For one week only:
