On Wednesday, December 6th, LKHZ participated (for the third year in a row) at the Bryn Mawr Staff Association Holiday Craft Fair!
This was a wonderful event with many vendors, and LKHZ sold our items to raise money for our monthly classroom project. Items included crayons and cacti among other LKHZ favs.
This was a successful event raising over $100 for the project!
Thank you to all who helped and shopped, we’ll see you again next year!

The Little Known Help Zone Spring 2017 semester was a busy and successful one here at Bryn Mawr College. We had some great events, and here is a round up of the accomplishments of the club this semester.
-Hosted a Guatemalan Tea Study Hour around midterms to provide a relaxing environment and introduce students to the tea of the Chirepeco cooperative, one organization we are supporting.
-Had the Deputy Consul of the Consulate of Philadelphia-Mexico, come for a speaking event with the Bryn Mawr Community
-Sell candygrams for May Day, selling fair trade ethical organic chocolate and raising over $50 for labor rights in Central America.
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.
On march 14th, Little Known Help Zone will be hosting a great event with a speaker, Rocio Vasquez from the Philadelphian Mexican Consulate. Rocio will be coming with some members from the protection agency to talk about how they work as an organization to protect worker’s rights in Philadelphia through an informal dialogue.
We are so grateful for these speakers donating their time, and the event will be catered with light snacks and refreshments.
We hope you can make it to Bryn Mawr College, Dalton 300 @ 4:00 PM on march 14th.
