We need your help to reach more islanders with the Fairtrade message

Dear Supporter

Fairtrade Fortnight runs from 24th February until 8th March 2020.

This is a Fairtrade renewal year for Guernsey, and we need your help to reach more islanders with the Fairtrade message and show them the power they have as consumers and active citizens.

Through various events, we’ll be telling the stories of Fairtrade cocoa farmers and explaining the different that only Fairtrade makes to women like Therese and Edith.

Receiving the Fairtrade Minimum Price and Premium has enabled Therese to send her children to school and give them opportunities she did not have. For Edith, being a Fairtrade certified farmer, has enabled her to access training and empowered her to diversify her income to bring in more money for her and her family.

Only Fairtrade is fighting for cocoa farmers to earn the living incomes they deserve as well as supporting these women to raise their voices and bring positive change to their families and communities.

We need your help to share their stories and show the demand for chocolate made by companies doing business differently. You could hold a storytelling session in your workplace, school or church, take part in our plans to spread their stories across the island by hiding some ‘storybombs’ for people to find, or display some posters where staff and the public can see them.

There’s still time to order resources directly from the Fairtrade Foundation or get in touch with the Fairtrade Guernsey Steering Group via info@fairtradeguernsey.com to see how we can help.

The Campaigner Action Guide plus ideas for how your business or community organisation can get involved are available to download from the Fairtrade Fortnight website.

We’d love to hear what you’re planning for this Fairtrade Fortnight so hit reply and let us know!
