Rescue Chocolate Helps Support House Rabbit Society
A few weeks ago, I wrote about Make Mine Chocolate, a public awareness campaign, which was started in 2002 by the Columbus House Rabbit Society to discourage giving live rabbits as Easter gifts.
The goal of this campaign is to educate the public about the challenges of properly caring for rabbits and encourage them to purchase chocolate Easter bunnies or stuffed animals rather than live rabbits.
Since its inception, many rabbit rescues across the United States and in the U.K. have promoted the Make Mine Chocolate campaign to help increase awareness and reduce the number of unwanted former Easter bunnies.
Rescue Chocolate, a company which donates 100% of its profits to various animal rescue organizations, has named the House Rabbit Society in Richmond, California, as its April beneficiary. That's right - the more chocolate you buy, eat, and give as gifts, the more you will increase the company's donation to HRS!
So visit Rescue Chocolate's website and order your chocolate bunnies today. Everything is vegan, kosher, handcrafted by artisan chocolatiers using traditional Belgian techniques, and packaged in eco-friendly materials.
What a great way to celebrate the holiday and help bunnies too!
