Canadians Rally Around Community Causes Through Fundraising with Cherished Purdys Chocolatier


Thousands of dollars have been raised with this no-cost, easy-to-use program

Life is sweeter when giving back – especially when chocolate is involved. Purdys Chocolatier offers one of Canada’s most recognized fundraising programs, allowing people to raise money for a variety of causes in their community by selling premium quality chocolate. Available during prime chocolate-consuming holidays, Christmas and Easter, people earn fundraising profit with every Purdys chocolate they sell.

“We’re grateful that Purdys Chocolatier’s Seasonal Fundraising program helps people across Canada raise money for meaningful causes, both big and small, from emergency surgeries at animal shelters, sports equipment for youth sports teams, to funds for school trips,” says Julia Cho, Director of Marketing at Purdys Chocolatier. “Our customers tell us they love the program because it’s trustworthy and dependable, and of course, everyone is thrilled once they receive their Purdys chocolate orders for the holidays.”

Community groups across Canada like parent associations, sports teams, and schools have been fundraising to support their causes for years – and with great success. Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind (CGDB) operates exclusively through fundraising and donations. Over the last seven years, CGDB has experienced tremendous success using Purdys Chocolatier’s Seasonal Fundraising program to raise funds for guide dog training. The organisation was so taken by the program that they named their first chocolate labrador born in 15 years, Purdy1. Purdy has since completed her guide dog training and is now working as a guide dog.

Jessie Thornton, Manager of Canine Development and Care at CGDB, shares how Purdys fundraising program positively impacts the ability to train and provide guide dogs to Canadians in need. “Fundraising with Purdys Chocolatier has been a game changer for our organization. Since we started using their Seasonal Fundraising program in 2016, we’ve been able to increase the funds raised to train more guide dogs for Canadians in need across the country. Operating exclusively through donations can be challenging, but this fundraising program has been so rewarding and essential to achieving our mission.”

Purdys Chocolatier offers over 40 different chocolates in the Seasonal Fundraising catalogue to choose from, including many best sellers like Hedgehogs, Sweet Georgia Browns and Christmas classics like Peppermint Bark, the Holiday Classics Gift Box, and vegan chocolates.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
