A chance for chocolate-lovers to give aid to animals
SACRAMENTO, CA (January 9, 2012) – RedRover, a national nonprofit animal protection organization, has been named the January 2012 beneficiary for Rescue Chocolate. The vegan chocolate company, known as “the sweetest way to save a life,” donates 100% of its net proceeds to animal rescue organizations across the United States.
“We are so pleased that Rescue Chocolate is giving to RedRover,” said Linda Bak, RedRover Development Manager. “Both organizations are committed to helping animals. This partnership gives chocolate-lovers another way to make a difference.”
RedRover focuses on bringing animals out of crisis and strengthening the bond between people and animals through a variety of programs, including emergency sheltering, disaster relief services, financial assistance and education. Founded in 1987, the organization is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. RedRover intends to increase its volunteer training workshop offerings in order to help even more animals in coming years.
Rescue Chocolate was founded in January 2010 by chocolate aficionado and animal-lover Sarah Gross, and operates out of Brooklyn, New York. “I can’t volunteer in person at RedRover, because the commute is a bit too far,” Gross said of RedRover’s Sacramento, California headquarters. “But I love what they’re doing and I’m honored to be able to contribute in my small way to their enormous good works.”
Rescue Chocolate offers a product line of kosher and vegan chocolate bars and truffles. Each flavor is named after an issue important in the animal rescue world, including:
While sales ultimately benefit the animals, Gross cautions that her chocolate products are only for human consumption. To learn more about Rescue Chocolate or to order products benefiting RedRover, visit www.RescueChocolate.com. For more information on RedRover, visit www.RedRover.org.
