start the week out right

Sometimes it's hard to know where to begin when you want to change the world. The problems are knotty and overwhelming. And can one person really do anything to help the oppressed?

In a word...YES! A resounding yes.. 

But that takes years, decades, right?

Not necessarily. Do you have 60 seconds?

Here's a link to Oxfam's "Women & Chocolate" campaign directed at the three biggest buyers of chocolate in the world - Nestle, Mars and Mondelez (Oreo's manufacturer). Happily, Nestle and Mars have already made commitments to look at their purchasing practices. Yeah! See how one person + one person + one person all add up together to one strong voice and that makes a difference.

Now you can lend your voice to convince Mondelez to stop oppressing women cocoa farmers. Can you think of a better way to start your week?
