Forget Willy Wonka. He may have been able to take a dew kissed sunrise and cover it in chocolate to make it taste good, but the real miracles happens with A Loving Spoonful CandyGram.
Back again for a third year, each $10 CandyGram includes a special-edition Valentine’s Day card, two heart-shaped Purdy’s chocolates, a Yelpstick lip balm, fresh mints in a stylish Yelp tin and a unisex love bracelet from Shamin Jewelers. Candygrams can be sent to anyone in Canada.
With over 80 new messages this year, A Loving Spoonful Executive Director Lisa Martella is particuarly fond of some of the funnier ones, including one that she is sending to a friend that says: "we'll be best friends forever because you know too much".
And while the recipient enjoys the CandyGram treats, thanks to the generosity of the sponsors you are helping to support the work of A Loving Spoonful.
“Receiving a CandyGram brings a smile to everyone who receives one and also helps raise much needed funds to provide nutritious and free meals to those living with HIV/AIDS – it’s truly a Valentine’s Day gift that gives from the heart," says Martella.
Every week A Loving Spoonful volunteers deliver approximately 1,200 frozen meals and over 250 snack packs to men, women and children who are primarily homebound with AIDS.
Candygrams are now available for purchase online at http://www.candygram.ca but with only 3,500 available you’ll want to act fast.
