Fair Trade Scavenger Hunt
Saturday, May 12, 2012 from 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM (EDT)
This isn't just any old scavenger hunt: Participants in the event will use a super cool iPhone or Android application called SCVNGR (like SCAVENGER without the vowels) to complete challenges, track points and win prizes. Instead of riddles to guide you to a place, SCVGR allows participants to complete challenges at a particular locations throughout Boston, Cambridge & Brookline.
Learn about the impact that Fair Trade is having on farmers and their families, visit fun cafes and stores and win prizes! (To find out more about the impact Fair Trade is having globally check out these great resources.)
