Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Appeal
We were all shocked to hear news about the Tsunami in Japan that is estimated to have taken over 10,000 lives. Now people live in fear of leaking radiation.
There are 4 Japanese working in Melt, and some have relatives in Tohoku where the massive earthquake happened. So this tragedy is very close to our hearts. We get regular updates via text and email from our relatives and friends in Japan.
We just couldn't watch this devastating disaster and do nothing.
Melt owner Louise encouraged us to come up with a plan to help, so we put together a special Japan Charity Chocolate, to help raise money to help those in need. Proceeds from the sales of this product will go to Japan through the Red Cross.
These cute discs are made using a dark milk chocolate with 53% cocoa content, topped with pistachio, cranberry, hazelnut. Also discs with natural dried strawberry - which has the appearance of Japanese cherry blossoms.
We are hopeful that our contribution will do something to help those in need, recovering from the Japanese Tsunami.
