Charities Coffret has Supported
One of the things that was important when we started Coffret was a company that would make a conscious effort to improve the world, beyond just feeding people delicious chocolate (which, arguably, is a good thing unto itself). So, $1 from every box we sell is donated to a charity chosen by the month's chocolate maker/chocolatier. Here's the list of the charities your chocolate purchases have supported, including a list of the wonderful and caring chocolate experts who chose them.
Meals on Wheels, Calgary

An organisation offering hot, nutritious meals to vulnerable people in Calgary. Their programs include home delivery of meals, as well as the provision of hot meals in schools to students in need.
