As 2021 comes to an end, we reflect on how grateful we are for another year to be able to provide delicious, vegan and allergen-friendly chocolate to our amazing customers. Not only were we super excited to offer our first ever vegan Advent Calendars and Chocolate Santas this year, we added a special twist to our Black Friday promotion.
For those customers who placed an order this year during the sale, a portion of the purchase was collected and donated to an incredible non-profit called The Alice Sanctuary.
The Alice Sanctuary is a Calgary-based organization that provides care and healing for rescued, surrendered and abandoned farm animals giving them a second chance at life. If you're not familiar with The Alice Sanctuary, you can actually visit them and the beautiful animals as they host a ton of fun and exciting events, workshops and classes throughout the year. Yoga with baby goats anyone?
If you missed out on the sale this year and want to support The Alice Sanctuary, it's super easy to donate here, or consider grabbing someone a gift from their online shop. We thought it appropriate to share this quote we found on their Instagram to best describe what they stand for and the amazing work they do:
"Lighthouses don't go running all over an island looking for boats to save; they just stand there shining." - Anne Lamott
We want to thank all of our customers for your generosity and continued support as we grow our business and offer better-for-you treats that are healthy for you and the planet.
Wishing you and your family the very best. Happy Holidays from Kat, Gerrit and the rest of the Dwarf Stars team - Shine on!
