We are pleased to announce that we raised a fantastic € 10,012 during Fairtrade Fortnight 2012. As this is our third consecutive year of donating from Fairtrade Fortnight to our two nominated Insomnia projects in Ethiopia, we have now contributed a total of €29,512 .
During Fairtrade Fortnight, February 27-March 11 2012, we have donated 5 cents for every coffee, tea and hot chocolate sold and €1 for every Fairtrade Retail hamper sold to our two nominated Insomnia Projects at the Oromia Coffee Farmers Co-operative Union in Ethiopia, from where we source our high quality Sidamo coffee of our Insomnia blend.
We would like to thank all of you for supporting Fairtrade Fortnight at Insomnia by enjoying our Fairtrade coffee, tea and hot chocolate and our retail hampers. Moreover, we would like to thank you for sharing your next step for Fairtrade with us on our Facebook page. It was really warming and inspiring.
We are embracing the initiative long term and we are very happy with the opportunity to contribute to better living conditions for farmers and workers by sourcing Fairtrade coffee as well as supporting our Insomnia Projects at a grass roots level. It is very important to us that you, our customer, can make the connection with the work we are doing in Africa, with your favourite coffee.
