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.
Little Known Help Zone is doing incredible things regarding fair trade and labor rights in Central America this semester. Come to our official kickoff on Wednesday March 1st from 7:30-9:00 in the Quita Woodward room at Bryn Mawr College.
We will be hosting a study hour with some treats, and most importantly, fair trade tea from one of our semester partner’s Chirrepeco Tea Cooperative.
This Guatemalan black tea has amazing health benefits and it just what you need during the crazy midterm season.
Hope to see you there!
