February brings us Valentine's Day and we have chocolate on our minds.
While chocolate Valentines will be given and received, thousands of children will be at work on the cocoa fields, forced to serve under harsh conditions.
But not all chocolate! Certified Fair Trade chocolate ensures that forced child labor is not part of the cocoa supply chain that makes it to your loved one.
This Valentine's Day, join us and demand that World's Finest Chocolate GO FAIR TRADE.
Why World's Finest Chocolate? The leading manufacturer of chocolate for school, church, and community fundraising signed the Harkin-Engel Protocol in 2001, committing itself to immediate action to stop the worst forms of child labor in cocoa plantations in West Africa. Now over 10 years later, they still haven't lived up to their promise of embracing Fair Trade Certification.
The time is now for World's Finest to go Fair Trade.
Take action today! Send a Valentine’s card to Edmond Opler, the President of World's Finest, encouraging him to act on his company’s commitment to Fair Trade! You can also download this free postcard, add your (or your child's) artistic flare and send it to the World's Finest headquarters.
Come on World's Finest! Being the “finest” requires a true commitment to fairness.
