Back On My Feet  Rocky 50K Fat-Ass Fun Run

How is this organization changing the world?

Back on My Feet is a non-profit creating independence and self-sufficiency within homeless populations in 11 cities nationwide by engaging them in running as a means to build confidence, strength and self-esteem.

The first stop on our cross-country trip was to meet Rebecca Schaefer founder of the Rocky Fat Ass run.  We've partnered with, Back On My Feet Philadelphia: Rocky 50K Fat Ass Run, to give you an opportunity to help the homeless. For every Fat Ass Fudge order that you place using the code BOMF, Chocology will donate $1.00 ($2 for every order of $50 or more) to Back On My Feet, Philadelphia, PA. 

Operation Freedom Paws

How is this organization changing the world?

Founded in January 2010, Operation Freedom Paws is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that matches dogs with individuals who have Post Traumatic Stress (PTS), Complex-Post Traumatic Stress (CPTS) and/or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) symptoms, or other physical, neurological, psychological or mobility needs.

OFP trains individuals to train their own dog, and then certifies them together as a service dog team in a 48-week program. Most of the dogs come from rescue shelters. This unique opportunity enables their clients to feel safe and secure, and to manage their day-to-day lives. The very special therapeutic canine-human relationship helps them get back out in their communities and begin to view their future with renewed hope.

Madeline and I had the pleasure of meeting and working with the team at Operation Freedom Paws in San Martin, California.  We were so impressed with their operation and everyone we met that we've partnered with them to give you an opportunity to help veterans and/or those with disabilities. 

For every Fat Ass Fudge order that you place using the code FREEDOMPAWS, Chocology will donate $1.00 ($2 for every order of $50 or more) to help a veteran get the dog s/he needs to empower them in moving forward in life.

Catarina’s Club

How is this organization changing the world?

Caterina’s Club serves over 1,200 low-income children a nutritionally balanced meal of freshly made pasta and vegetables 365 days a year. Over 1 Million meals served and rapidly counting.  In addition to feeding hungry children they’ve created the WELCOME HOME program, assisting families who are living week to week in the cramped quarters of a motel room, stay just one step ahead of homelessness, because they cannot scrape together enough money for a deposit on a decent apartment. Their WELCOME HOME program is the catalyst for assisting qualified families, currently living in motels throughout Orange County. To date, 63 families (348 individuals) have been successfully relocated.

We're partnering with Chef Bruno and Caterina’s Club to give you an opportunity to help hungry children in America and help relocate families to a proper home. For every Fat Ass Fudge order that you place using the code CHEFBRUNO, Chocology will donate $1.00 ($2 for every order of $50 or more)  until we can say “Welcome Home” to a family in the Caterina’s Club – Welcome Home Program.

Stony Brook Children’s 

Where will your money go when you choose Stony Brook Children’s Hospital as your Chocology charity?

The new building will feature a pediatric intensive care unit, adolescent unit, procedure suite, hematology/oncology unit, medical/surgical units and modern patient and family amenities and advanced ideas in medicine for kids.

Stony Brook Children’s believes that children come first and their families are critical members of the treatment team. They call this “patient and family care” and believe that family involvement in the treatment program leads to healthier and happier kids. Find out more about their vision here.

We at Chocology are so privileged to be working with these organizations to bring about positive change in our world. Do any of these programs pull at your heartstrings? If so, you can help by ordering our Fat Ass Fudge and entering the code of your choice. Rest assured your money will be applied to the appropriate organization and you will be a big part of making the changes we want to see in our shared world.

Please feel free to share this opportunity with your friends and family on Facebook or Twitter. Together we can all enjoy the magic of chocolate and giving back!

Chocology is making a cross-country trip – Four years ago Madeline and I took a road trip to meet people who inspired us. We had such an amazing time meeting new friends and seeing new places. So much so that we’ve taken a road trip every year since then.

For our upcoming trip, we are putting our focus on giving. In the past, we were able to give of our time but not so much of our money. This year, we can give both and we are super excited.

Madeline and I have hit the road with chocolate in tow. We're working our way cross-country to California. We have several causes that pull at our heartstrings therefore the focus of our trip is to cross the country giving to many of these causes.

Madeline loves helping animals and has volunteered at PetSmart’s (A Wing and A Prayer) for many years. Many of our efforts will be going in the direction of assisting our animal loving partners in the world. I’ve always had a soft spot for women, children, the homeless, veterans and peace in our world, which has inspired us to seek out organizations that support these areas with passion and grace.

We’ve learned that when we give, we get the best gift of all. The gift of knowing that maybe we’ve made a little dent in the Universe and left the world in just a little bit better shape.

Won’t you come with us? Hop in our virtual backseat and travel cross-country with us as we give back to the principles and ideals we believe in.

How about we play a game? We’re live posting on FacebookTwitter and Instagram throughout our trip and giving clues as to where we are on our journey. Perhaps you can guess where we are and what we are doing there? We’d love to have you join us. You never know what surprises will come your way on a cross-country trip. We plan to have many and look forward to seeing old friends and making some new ones along the way.

Oh, and never fear! We have a terrifically talented team at home who will be standing by to take your Chocology orders. Our customers are our priority and it will be business as usual on the home-front.

We look forward to sharing travel, workshops and giving back with you, our Chocology family, and certainly hope that you will join us. Here’s wishing you happy trails and safe traveling!
