October is near!

Posted on September 24, 2012


October is not just for Germany’s Oktoberfest. October is Fair Trade Month, Freerice‘s 5th birthday, and the start of Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF.

They have downloadable toolkits for supporters, and you can order the boxes (which also includes campaign materials) for Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF. I highly encourage everyone to participate in at least one of these celebrations. Spread the word about FairTrade products, create a group on www.freerice.com, and/or order your boxes and start trick-or-treating for UNICEF. They’re all fun and easy campaigns that I think everyone will enjoy.

I already created a group on www.freerice.com with my high school friends from the Philippines, and some of us live outside the Philippines now. But since it’s an online game (you answer easy questions and each correct answer equates to 10 grains of rice donated by sponsors to the World Food Programme), we all could participate no matter where we are. We already reached 16,000+ grains in only 2 days!

Every little bit of effort counts.
