Saying Goodbye To A Decadent Pleasure

Mmmm chocolate. I love chocolate, it's so decadent mmm.....
....but after watching CNN Freedom Project, Chocolate's Child Slaves, I've been left questioning myself, is it worth it? Do I really want to contribute in today's modern day slavery??? There are a few chocolate companies which have helped and are continuing to help to put an end to this child slavery but some deny that it even exists.
They deny that 6 year old and 10 year old are working in the coco fields without pay,
unable to attend school, unable to play with children their age, deprived of fulfilling their dreams not caring if they cry or bleed.
I love chocolate but knowing how it's made, I CAN NOT contribute to that and I know just one person will have next to no effect on the system, but I just can't.....
