Remember back in August of last year when Chocomize had broke the $2,000 mark on our charity count? Well now the charity count is close to approaching the $10,000 mark!
As many of you know by now, Chocomize donates 1% of the proceeds from each order to one of our selected charities chosen by you. Our newest charity, A Drink For Tomorrow (ADFT) has already raised over $2,300!
Founded several years ago by Stephanie Weaver, ADFT is a non-profit organization raising awareness of the lack of access to clean water sanitation in impoverished communities around the world. All of the money donated is used to help implement water projects and teach sanitary habits. In 2009, ADFT was able to complete its first project, a dug well in West Bengal, India that now brings 140 people arsenic-free water. Through a significant amount of growth after two years, they were able to fund 5 similar projects in Haiti, Botswana, Lesotho, Sierra Leone, and Guatemala.
We chose ADFT as one of our feature charities because we love supporting fellow local entrepreneurs like Stephanie. We’re excited to work with ADFT and look forward to a great partnership.
