DO WE CARE IT'S CHRISTMAS TIME AT ALL?




Thousands of trafficked children are being forced to work on cocoa plantations this Christmas.

What do these children want for Christmas?

They want to go home.

In the UK we will spend over a billion pounds this Christmas on chocolate.

We like to eat chocolate.

These children are slaves.

Something is terribly wrong.

STOP THE TRAFFIK Chocolate Christmas Campaign is about ACTION and CHANGE.

The customer needs to know who picked the cocoa beans that make chocolate.

The retailer needs to know that their customers will change what they buy to force the chocolate industry to change their practices.

The chocolate manufacturers need to realise that this is the time to:


  • SIGN THE CHOCOLATE PLEDGE.

  • KEEP THEIR ORIGINAL PROMISES

  • And GIVE US TRAFFIK FREE CHOCOLATE NOW
