“Equal Exchange is the most phenomenal company! The Equal Exchange fundraiser is easy as pie. I have nothing but praise. And Equal Exchange has the most amazing customer service!” Melissa PusterMontessori School of Wooster, OH
“I am so thankful that you offer fundraising while supporting so many global issues. Finding your fundraising program was a dream! Thank you!” Merrit DesLauriesWaldorf School of Pittsburgh Class of 2021
“I've long been a Fair Trade kind of guy, but hadn't thought about the possibilities for my students until I met an Equal Exchange representative at a language education conference. I especially like the site's classroom resources, which I use alongside the fundraiser to get students thinking about where the things we eat come from and why many people prefer to buy Fair Trade products [...] Equal Exchange's slide presentation on chocolate and its explanation of its origins in West Africa tie well into our curriculum, which includes study of that region. It's a real eye-opener for my students to think that young children are often the ones harvesting the chocolate we consume in this country.” Douglass CrouseTeacher of French, Sparta Middle School, NJ
“The kids were excited about the products and it was truly a teachable moment to talk about Fair Trade business practices from a science lens. And, we raised enough money to buy four new wireless microscopes that project the image to iPads for our laboratory — yay!” Carly ZieglerSteamboat Springs Middle School, CO
“The customer service staff at Equal Exchange were so patient and informative in fielding my multiple emails and phone calls for support. I never felt rushed in our conversations, and I sincerely appreciate that focus and attention. I look forward to our annual fundraisers for years to come!” Melanie BrownWalden University
“Great fundraiser - great products that align with our values. Incredibly fast turnaround from when the order was placed. Great experience!” Nicole SizemoreFort Collins Montessori School
