We Want More From Our S’mores!
NEW! Join us in taking action on Facebook to support the campaign! Here is how:
- Download and print a flyer here and take a photograph of yourself holding up your flyer. It just takes a few minutes and you can even use the camera on your computer or mobile phone. Feel free to make your own sign and include friends, family and co-workers in your photograph.
- Upload your photograph to Hershey’s Facebook page here. Just hit “like” on Hershey’s Facebook page and upload your photograph on the company’s wall. Include a message of support like: “Hershey: I want more from my s’mores! Will you raise the bar for workers and make my chocolate without child labor, forced labor and trafficking by National S’mores Day next year?”

Make your S’mores Fair Trade
Whether you are making s’mores at home, at a barbeque or while camping, use Fair Trade Certified chocolate for your s’more and be sure to register each s’more that you and your friends make online here! Each Monday until September 10, 2011, we will be updating the total number of Fair Trade S’mores made by people around the world. The best way to support the campaign is to host a s’mores event in your community. Check out this step-by-step checklist to help you plan an event! Check out the video below for inspiration.
Collect Hershey Petitions in Your Community
At your s’mores event — or any other type of event where friends, family and community members gather — collect petitions to Hershey. Download regular s’mores themed petitions here. You can also download a special s’mores-themed color-in petition to Hershey online here.
