This past Halloween, children and families spread the word about Fair Trade, switching up holiday conventions a bit while having a good time to boot. Folks from across the country sent in orders for the popular Reverse Trick-or-Treating kit, and Global Exchange distributed nearly 1,000 of them to supporters, both seasoned vets of Reverse Trick-or-Treating and first-timers.
Reverse Trick-Or-Treating would not have been possible without the help of the numerous individuals and organizations we’ve worked with. A special thanks goes to:

What you can do now: If you missed the opportunity to participate in Reverse Trick-or-Treating or the Hershey Halloween Photo Contest this year, but still want to spread the word about rampant abuses in the cocoa industry, we encourage you to host a screening of The Dark Side of Chocolate.
The Dark Side of Chocolate is a heart breaking documentary that raises awareness about child slavery in the cocoa industry.
To order your copy of The Dark Side of Chocolate, visit our website or email fairtrade (at) globalexchange (dot) org.
The work for fairer trade continues!
