Its time to take a stance against child labour in cocoa. This holidey season we're doing something tangible. When we screened the documentary ‘Semisweet;Life in Chocolate’ in Toronto recently, a number of people came up to me and said, “I had no idea that chocolate had a dark side. I didn't know that unfair child labour practices still exist in cocoa plantations in West Africa.” There are reportedly over 15,000 children who continue to work in cocoa plantations in Cote D’Ivoire, where 65% of the world's cocoa comes from. As a filmmaker my role is to build awareness but now we're moving to action. I'm delighted to enter into a partnership with World Vision Canada's fund that supports to end child labour. You too can join and make your contribution to this worthy cause. Make A Pledge Today!
