S'mores for everyone to raise awareness about fair trade chocolate

To raise awareness about fair trade issues and child labor used in some cocoa fields, Penn State Brandywine students (the Fair Trade “TrailBlazers” as they are known) will host a fair trade s’mores event on campus at 12:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 16, in the John D. Vairo Library courtyard.

Attendees will toast marshmallows, melt Equal Exchange fair trade chocolate and wrap them in graham cracker goodness while engaging in discussion about ethical chocolate.

To prepare for the discussion, the TrailBlazers suggest attendees visit http://bit.ly/OLVwFD to learn more about recent news coverage and background about the issue.
 
Please RSVP at http://bit.ly/O3i8pd so the students can make sure there is enough for everyone. Participants are asked to indicate how many s’mores they plan to consume as well.
