To everyone who is reading.

DO NOT BUY NON FAIR-TRADE CHOCOLATE!!

Did you know that 70 per cent of the world's cocoa suply comes from Ghana, Nigeria and The Ivory Coast in West Africa?
Did you know that the people working here are not adults but children aged 12 to 14? Did you know that most of them are trafficked (kidnapped) and that they have minial food and sleep, beatings and of course, no pay?

FIGHT FOR THE FREEDOM OF THOSE TRAFFICKED TO COCOA FARMS
12,000 children may have a fighting chance of a different future if we choose to change what we eat.

Well, its no lie.... according to the US Deparment of State more that 109,000 children were working in cocoa farms on the Ivory Coast in what they termed "worst forms of child labour."

At least 12.3 million people are victims of
forced labour worldwide

So PLEASE do everything you can to make people aware of these horrifying facts and do not by non fair trade chocolate. If your chocolate is fair trade, it was made by people who have a choice to work, who have pay and are able to talk to their families!!
