Preparing for World Fair Trade Day (hopefully, our Declaration Day!)

The Fair Trade TrailBlazers will have a table at Middletown Community Day, held at the Penn State Brandywine campus on Saturday, May 12.  It just so happens that May 12 is also World Fair Trade Day, and hopefully, the day our campus is declared with Fair Trade University status!

At Middletown Community Day, we will have a table with educational information and brochures about Fair Trade, as well as samples of Equal Exchange chocolate (the mini organic dark chocolate bars) to hand out.  But with over 2,000 people expected to stop by campus on this day, we have alot to prepare!  After some marathon sessions of cutting and taping (such as the scenes in the photos below), we think we are ready.  Of course, we are still waiting on pins and needles for the verdict on our Fair Trade University application…
