Can Your Jewelry Save the Earth? Ours Can! Part III

Whenever you combine two of girls’ favorite treats, chocolate and jewelry, it’s bound to be a successful fundraiser. With this in mind, Relief Beads and Compartes Chocolatier have partnered to raise awareness and money to aid refugees in Darfur. Relief Beads, a grassroots campaign, is selling handcrafted bracelets made from sand in Ghana, Africa. Each purchase helps to fund Relief International’s medical clinics for women and children, educational programs for students and counseling for victims of violent acts.

But to make this good cause even better, Compartes Chocolatier has created an African Collection of chocolates to pair with each Relief Beads bracelet. The collection is made up of authentic African ingredients like cardamom, coconut, Grains of Paradise, caramelized plantains and so much more. You can buy a 5 piece set for $20 or 10 piece set for $30. I know this is more than what we usually pay for chocolate treats, but each purchase can give one child food for a week or life-giving heat on cold nights. Get your special Compartes gift packages online or at their boutique in Los Angeles!

Compartes has been hand making candy from scratch for over 55 years. It specializes in chocolate covered fruits and ganache truffles, homemade marshmallows and gooey caramels. All of the tasty delectables are made from all natural ingredients and tons of love and care. Sounds yummy, right?
