Chocolate comes to Mingei! Eat and help Haiti.

Really? We’ve sold lots of things through the years, but never something to eat.  But now, we have some goodies for you– and just in time for Valentine’s Day!  Rawcaroons and Cacaobunga are delicious, raw, organic, artisanal chocolates and cookies by Halleluna, a small company in Slingerlands, NY.

Why these? Caryn Halle, the creator of these vegan and gluten-free and truly delicious indulgences, has ties to Haiti through the Vassar Haiti Project, which supports artists in Port-au-Prince as well as educational, nutritional and sustainability projects in rural Haiti.  10% of her sales go to support the project, and she also buys some of her ingredients including organic coffee from Haiti. To read more about the VHP, please check out their blog at http://blogs.vassar.edu/haitiproject/.

How does it help? In addition to what Caryn donates from her proceeds, we will be donating $1 from each bag sold to Partners in Health to support their immediate needs for earthquake relief in Haiti.
