I am sooo happy, because you know what I celebrate today? The big mark of being half way through my year without chocolate!! Woohoo! That’s no chocolate or any cocoa products for 182.5 days and another 182.5 to go!
Many of you have already sponsored me and I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart! For this proud moment of my live I have looked for a quote that reflects not only my view but also encorporates what I do and what Fairtrade does.
The quote is from Maimonides:
“Anticipate charity by preventing poverty; assist the reduced fellow man, either by a considerable gift or a sum of money or by teaching him a trade or by putting him in the way of business so that he may earn an honest livelihood and not be forced to the dreadful alternative of holding out his hand for charity. This is the highest step and summit of charity’s golden ladder.”
