Put an end to child slavery in Africa to make the chocolate we love

This petition had 166 supporters

More than 2.8 billion pounds of chocolate are consumed by Americans each year. But the story behind the chocolate that we know and love is not as sweet as the candy itself- in fact it is heart-breaking. Large chocolate manufacturing companies are taking young, innocent children as slaves to create chocolate for free. Children near the Ivory Coast of Africa are smuggled over the border to big, Cocoa plantations where this unacceptable treatment goes on. Just because Hershey, Nestle, and Mars chocolate companies are rich doesn't mean that they have to get free manual labor- especially from children. President Obama and others need to know about this and do something about it- Before anymore kids have to go through this.

Help stop this today, and sign this petition. Think about it. What if this was you, or your kid being stolen from you while you were sleeping, for you never to see them again? This needs to stop and it needs to stop NOW.
