Here at STOP THE TRAFFIK we want you to have a wonderful Traffik-free Christmas so we’ve come up with a stocking-full of suggestions for festive fundraising and more. Take a look…
Host a festive raffle:
Download our STOP THE TRAFFIK Christmas raffle tickets (right) each one is a mini-petition! By buying a raffle ticket, people are joining the STOP THE TRAFFIK chocolate campaign; you can entice them with a Traffik-free chocolate prize! Sendthe raffle tickets, along with the money raised from the raffle, to us after your party and we’ll add the sign-ups to our global campaign.
No need for wrapping paper:
This year, why not wrap your presents in newspaper instead? Donate the money you’ve saved on wrapping paper to STOP THE TRAFFIK.
Organise a festive fondue party:
Host a fondue party with your friends, colleagues or community and enjoy some delicious
Traffik-free chocolate whilst also raising awareness. You could even save your chocolate wrappers and send them, along with a Christmas card, to your favourite chocolate company asking them to clean up their supply chains.

Everyone loves a Christmassy quiz (here in the office we did one yesterday!) Why not include a round on the chocolate industry to get everyone’s brains ticking and to spread the word about this global injustice.
Make your own traffik-free advent calender:
It’s not too late to make your own advent calender. Each new window opened can tell the story of a child trafficked onto cocoa farms in West Africa and each day the treat can be a small piece of traffik-free chocolate!
Set up a message tree:
Ask your work colleagues / school friends to tie their Yule tide messages to the Christmas tree rather than sending everyone a Christmas card. Donate the money you’ve saved to STOP THE TRAFFIK.
Have a Merry Christmas!
