Working with Equal Exchange was positive. There was excellent and responsive communication and they have an easy spreadsheet to talley orders and create your order to the company. The only difficult thing was that the orders do not come sorted by student seller as some fundraising companies do. This just means planning for time to go through and sort each order and getting some other parents to come help.
I think a great way to increase sales with this fundraiser would be to partner it with education on what Fair Trade is and why it is important. Not only may that help increase sales but it may introduce people to Fair Trade that have never even heard of it before.
