Sharing Christmas joy.
Together with our partner the Café Feminino Foundation, we celebrated ‘La Chocolatada’ with rural communities of Murojaga, El Najango and Corral de Piedra in the Lambayeque region and Lonya Grande, Guadalupe and San Antonio in the Amazonas region of Northern Peru. La Chocolatada is a unique tradition where the community gets together and shares hot chocolate and panettone bread for Christmas. It is celebrated throughout the month of December and most popular in the smallest and poorest communities, where the main goal is to bring great joy to the children and their parents.
Together with the generous support of our customers, friends and families, we donated 300 t-shirts, hundreds of school supplies, loads of chocolate and sweets as well as direct monetary donations to the Café Femenino Foundation making this Christmas a bit more special for the children and their parents. A special thanks to Jets Gymnastics for donating these amazing t-shirts.
It was incredibly humbling to share the joy and genuine gratitude of these families.
