The 2019 Meaningful Treat Pack is described as a life-changing resource that will give up to 25 people the gift of sight while helping with mission work on, and leading up to, the eve of All Saints’ Day (Halloween)’.

Intended for children, each Meaningful Treat Pack includes a pouch, some chocolate and a ‘challenge activity poster that features eight challenges. One of the challenges this year is to design a Fairtrade chocolate bar called ‘The Sight Bar, and a real chocolate bar, based on the winning design, will be made. The winner will also get a case of 12 bars with their winning design.

Children can only enter the competition using the form on the challenge activity poster, and it is said that the profits from the sales of this bar will give up to 25 people the gift of sight by funding eye operations in the developing world.  

The Meaningful Treat Packs come in a case of 30, and inside each case there are 30 bags of Swiss Fairtrade milk chocolate, 30 pouches (to make up) and 30 challenge activity posters. There is also a leader’s guide designed to make the most of any event or all-age worship. Orders may be made by visiting this website.

Intended for light parties, outreach events, schools or for children who will ‘trick or treat’ on 31st October (Halloween), David Marshall (Director of The Meaningful Chocolate Company Ltd), has said: “The Meaningful Treat box is a way for adults to challenge kids to look at the good in the world, to do a bit of good by helping others and to enjoy some great Fairtrade chocolate. It’s a chance for 5–11-year-olds to shine this Halloween.

“The word ‘Halloween means ‘The night before All Saints Day’. All Saints Day is the time when we celebrate  religious saints they are a special kind of hero. We also remember friends and family members. It’s the time when we celebrate good winning over bad and light over darkness. We also think it’s a chance to show love to others.”
