Equal Exchange Organic & Fair Trade Fundraiser Chocolate Giveaway

Monday, May 10, 2010

{This giveaway has ended. Congratulations to #101, NewMommiezBlends} I recently came across the Equal Exchange Organic & Fair Trade Fundraising program. If you're like me, then your kids come home with at least one school fundraising project each month. And they are usually required to sell junk we don't need or food that's unhealthy. It really bothers me. They usually go right in my recycling bin.

I may, however, take a look at an organic fundraising program. I am a big proponent of buying local, organically produced products. The Equal Exchange Organic & Fair Trade Fundraiser program is a way for green families to raise money for their schools or organizations while still supporting their values.

Take a look below to read more about the program:

The Equal Exchange Fundraiser allows schools and community groups to make money (40% profit), while benefiting small organic farmers and artisans around the globe. The fundraiser features organic and fairly traded coffees, teas, cocoas, nuts & berries, and handmade gift wrap (tree-free!) from Equal Exchange, and beautiful gifts for the home from Ten Thousand Villages(www.tenthousandvillages.com). The Equal Exchange Fundraiser works both as an event and/or catalog sale and is an easy way to both make money for the school, while reinforcing classroom values of social and environmental responsibility and global citizenship.

Equal Exchange’s unique fundraising program also includes FREE educational materials to empower teachers to delve deeper into the issues surrounding Fair Trade and cooperative economics: www.equalexchange.coop/educationaltools


To help increase awareness, the Equal Exchange Organic & Fair Trade Fundraiser is offering one Suburban Jungle reader a FREE case of Equal Exchange organic & fairly traded dark chocolate minis ($35 value)!

Yum-o-rama!

It's high time more products used fair trade. Producers should be compensated fairly.

Sustainable farming is important to me. I like that this program not only supports that but can teach our kids about it, all while bringing yummy chocolate!

This program sounds wonderful. It is a win-win collaboration for all involved. I also like the fact that materials for educators are available so this is an educational opportunity as well as a fund-raiser!
