I don’t think I need to tell you guys about the devastation Haiti is facing. It’s horrible, and hard to read about.
The good news is – we can help! Besides donating to charities like the Red Cross (you can donate $10 by texting ‘Haiti’ to 90999 – love that!) and Unicef, many great companies are donating their profits to those in Haiti who need our help.
Theo Chocolate is one of those companies. 100% of the purchase of their 45% classic milk and 70% classic dark chocolate bars will go to CARE, a humanitarian nonprofit fundraising for the Haiti relief effort. Last summer, I had the privilege of taking a tour of the Theo Chocolate factory in Seattle, which is the only organic & fair trade bean-to-bar factory in the US. They have a great philosophy and a wonderful product, with amazing and interesting flavors like Fig, Fennel & Almond or Coconut Curry. If you find yourself in Seattle, definitely take the tour. It’s fun and there are LOTS of samples!
If you love chocolate and want to help, I strongly encourage you to order some of these classic bars! It’s not too early to stock up for Valentine’s Day! I’m placing my order right now – will you?
Will you buy a chocolate bar for charity? Do you recommend any other charities, or companies donating their proceeds?
