Do you sometimes feel that school fundraisers are an assault on your health and wellness? It's hard to resist when a bright, young person hands you a catalog asking you to help raise money, even when it is full of candy loaded with high-fructose corn syrup, toxic candles, or bad-for-your-waistline frozen baked goods. But, there's good news. Today there are fundraisers that consider your health, the environment, and Fair Trade.

In February I spent a week traveling around Ethiopia with representatives from other coffee companies as part of a Cupping Caravan. In two 15 passenger vans, top loaded with gas ranges, propane, and 5 gallon bottles of water, we spent the first few days cupping—the industry term for analyzing coffee—at various ECX field labs. ECX stands for the Ethiopia Commodity Exchange, which is the government agency responsible for grading all commodities produced in Ethiopia.
