To end the semester of our labor rights advocating, Little Known Help Zone sold candy grams for May Day that were delivered in people’s mailboxes. The chocolate we sold was fair trade and organic and also benefited endangered animals. We made over $50 that will be donated to ORMUSA, a women’s labor rights organization in El Salvador.
To put together the candygrams, we had an end of the year party to celebrate our accomplishments with some chinese food.
We hope to have more successful fundraisers in the following semesters to continue to contribute to human rights causes in Central America.
Want to support Little Known Help Zone’s efforts in promoting fair labor in Central America? Consider buying a fair trade chocolate candygram for a friend or yourself and supporting a good cause!
For May Day, we are selling fair trade milk chocolate bars for $3, delivered in your mailbox or in a friend’s on 4/28, just in time for May Day! All money goes to ORMUSA and Chirrepeco Tea Cooperative, funding labor rights training and paid maternity leave.
After extensive selling and baking, the bake sale was a success, making a $54 profit which will be split up amongst the 3 causes, playground equipment in Honduras, school in Guatemala, and english language programs in Costa Rica.
Here’s the run down.

One of the major delights of Christmastime, and every other time, is candy!
I reached out to Just Born, my local candy company, and received a very generous donation of many Mike&Ike flavors. Each child received 6 big packs of candy and I packaged them in Christmas themed goodie bags.
The children will be very excited for these treats and Little Known Help Zone extends its sincerest gratitude to Just Born for their kindness.
