Chocolate is often procured using slave labor. Frequently, child slave labor. It could have been my children.
I could have been born on the other side of the world. My children, my family, the ones I love could have been forced into slavery. Excuse me while I cry.
How did I not realize this before? Human-trafficking has always equated to sex-trafficking in my mind. While sex-trafficking is beyond horrific, I typically cannot see my money going directly into the industry. Chocolate? I spend some cold hard cash on chocolate.
While going about the completely overwhelming process of researching where my money could be ending up in the hands of human-traffickers, I began thinking beyond slavery. Could I spend money in a way where I not only avoid slavery, but promote living wages? Friends, I have SO much to learn.
On this learning journey, I stumbled upon Noonday Collection. I AM IN LOVE. So in love. After weeks of thinking and praying about this company, I am jumping into it! Hello ladies, I am your local Noonday Ambassador.
