My first EVER Klout Perk — thanks Fair Trade USA!

Klout is an interesting service that helps individuals to monitor and measure their social influence. They partner with brands to offer 'Perks' to influencers on specific topics of the brand's choosing. 

I've been on Klout for years, but unfortunately have never cashed in on any of the Perks that I've been eligible for. Then, several weeks ago I saw that I was eligible for a Perk from Fair Trade USA. I fully support the ideas and intention behind the Fair Trade model, and was thrilled to see they were using Klout to increase the visibility of their cause, so I decided to go through the process to redeem the Perk.

My Perk was waiting on my doorstep when I returned home from visiting my family for Christmas. Opening the box was like having Santa swing by for the second time in one week! I am a *huge* chocoholic, and the Perk contained several different chocolate-related products. Barefoot & Chocolate, Caleb's Kola, Lake Champlain Chocolates, Nourish Organic, Pact, Weaver's Coffee, and World's Finest Chocolates were all the brands participating in this Perk curated by Fair Trade USA.

My official unboxing video goes deeper into the products that were shared, so check it out, and let me know what you think in the comments! Though I received the products for free, I was not asked to create this video nor was I paid for any of it. I simply wanted to share my gratitude for the great Perk, and help spread the Fair Trade message.

It's now my goal to #givefair all through out the year!
