Making a Difference!

I was so excited to read Responsively Yours, Harriett Olson's monthly letter, in the November issue of response magazine. She writes about gratitude and lists many reasons to celebrate.  One thing that especially got my attention was about the Hershey Company announcement that they plan to source 100 percent of cocoa for its products from fair trade sources by 2020.

Remember signing a postcard asking Hershey to change their practices and demand that suppliers pay farmers a fair amount for their cocoa and eliminate child labor?  We signed cards at several of our conference events and I know the Tarleton State UMW had a table in front of the campus library one day and got lots of the classmates to sign cards.

Well, those cards made a difference. When a company contact told Sabrina White(the UMW leader who led this campaign),about the decision to go 100% fair trade, the contact added,  "Now you will no longer have to spend time and money on postcards."

Keep up the good work!  Keep working for justice!  We are making a difference for good.
