We stand with Ukraine.
We have been watching, listening, learning, and grieving as we follow the events taking place in Ukraine.
As a small token of our solidarity, we have partnered with Peace by Chocolate in support of their Peace for Ukraine campaign.
"As a company we have always said we are not in the business of chocolate, we are in the business of Peace." - Peace by Chocolate
Every Spring Box will now include a Peace for Ukraine bar.
All proceeds from our purchase of these bars will help fund peacemaking missions in impacted areas through the Canadian Red Cross. The donated proceeds will also be matched by the Government of Canada.
The Story of the Hadhad Family & Peace by Chocolate
"For nearly 30 years we created and shipped our specialty treats all over the Middle East and Europe.
Like much of our homeland, in late 2012 the original Hadhad family chocolate factory in Damascus, Syria was destroyed in a bombing that forced our family to leave everything behind and flee to Lebanon.
For three years we found ourselves as refugees with little opportunity or hope. Our lives had been forever altered and we dreamed of being able to once again live lives we could love.
When our family was invited to Canada, our dreams came true. With the support of our new community of Antigonish and the people of Nova Scotia, we have rebuilt our chocolate company and are once again doing the work we love."
We a proud to have the Hadhad family and Peace by Chocolate right here in our hometown in rural Nova Scotia.
We hope our communities will continue to be a safe space for people around the world - of all backgrounds - to take refuge.
