It’s hard to believe, but Halloween is only 12 days away! This year, you might be a little surprised to see many kids giving candy back to the adults. It’s a concept called Reverse Trick-or-Treating, and it’s catching on fast.
In association with Global Exchange’s Fair Trade Cocoa Campaign, Reverse Trick-or-Treating seeks to end child labor in the cocoa industry while simultaneously promoting Fair Trade. There is a card attached to each piece of vegan, Fair Trade dark chocolate explaining the child labor issues associated with the conventional chocolate we normally see at Halloween. It’s a fun and easy way for kids to support both neighbors and the international cocoa growing community.
If you’re interested in participating in this amazing movement but missed the deadline for ordering the free kit, you can still make a difference! Many people express their support through handing out Fair Trade chocolate to Trick-or-Treaters. Click here to find where you can purchase Fair Trade chocolate. Hope for Women encourages you to check out their Facebook page to see how you can get involved and help make this Halloween the most meaningful one yet.
