To date we have helped raise over £320,000 from sales supporting charitable causes, development and education projects.
Money raised from this year's Real Advent Calendar will help The Funzi and Bodo Trust provide mums and babies from poor African villages with care; clinics for pregnant mums, birthing rooms, baby growth and malnutrition clinics. Money raised from the sales of our Hospice Advent Calendar will be donated to 6 participating hospices.
Making a big chunk of difference
The Meaningful Chocolate Company is run by people who are passionate about ethical trading and faith. Sometimes we make direct contributions from our profits to good causes, sometimes we promote appeals.
We also pay our farmers a Fairtrade Premium to invest in improving their communities with everything from buying school books to solar panels and providing fresh water.
In 2013, we donated more than £18,000 to the Children’s Society. Then, in 2014, we donated a further £18,000 to equip a baby clinic on the Kenyan Island of Funzi . Further donations were made in 2015, 2016 and 2017 to The Funzi and Bodo Trust and Traidcraft Exchange. In 2018 and 2019 and 2020 further donations were given to The Funzi and Bodo Trust.
Amongst others we have also supported The Leprosy Mission, Christians Against Poverty, Baby Lifeline, Lupus UK and The Trussell Trust.
This year we have also produced the Forest Bar which will fund the planting of a tree for every bar bought.
So enjoy the moment - chocolate that tastes good and does good - chocolate that makes a big chunk of difference.
