Fair Trade certification is a guarantee to processors, handlers, retailers and consumers, that the cocoa beans used in this chocolate were produced in a way that does no social harm. We would like to invite you to help support Project Hope and Fairness, a 501(3c) charitable organization. Its main goal is to help the cocoa farmer. Right now, they are focusing efforts in Ivory Coast, the source of 75% of America's chocolate. Go to www.projecthopeandfairness.org to make a donation and help the West African cocoa farmers! For Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa, Donate a Gift That Matters!
