Change a child’s world… with chocolate!
Bellafina Chocolates was created for the sole purpose of helping vulnerable children. We support our mission by making some of the best chocolate on the planet! All net profit, after expenses, is directed to charities helping children threatened by disease, poverty, abuse, or neglect. Our company is staffed almost entirely by volunteers, plus the paid positions that we’ve created to help struggling single mothers and women in recovery from addiction, abuse, or other personal struggles.
I have been abundantly blessed in my life. We didn’t have a lot of money growing up, but my parents provided a safe, nurturing home with a strong emphasis on education and accomplishing as much as possible in our lives. It is heartbreaking to see so many children who do not have these advantages.
I started Bellafina Chocolates in my spare time while working as a Vice President in a Fortune 500 industrial company. I wanted to help underprivileged kids and we quickly raised several thousand dollars for children’s charities. Barely a year later a corporate restructuring left me without a job and pondering what to do with the second half of my career. After much thought and prayer (and conversation with my very supportive husband!), I decided to devote myself to running Bellafina Chocolates on a full-time volunteer basis. I believe that God gives us certain gifts, talents, and circumstances for a specific purpose. It is difficult to be sure of that purpose sometimes, but for my part I am dedicated to growing this company to the point that it can make a really significant impact on women’s and children’s lives.
We have an ambitious goal to create a company that can write million dollar checks to charity and can continue doing so long after I am gone. We appreciate your support and your help to share our message with your friends!
Stay tuned as we journey this path together, and may God bless you and your family.
The mission of Bellafina Chocolates is to help the world’s most vulnerable children. And we do this by making some of the most delicious chocolate creations on the planet! All Bellafina Chocolates net proceeds benefit worthy children’s and literacy charities…always has and always will.
