Alberta Cares Packages
- Alberta Cares Chocolate Package
Care for someone you know. Care for someone you don’t know. Our Alberta Cares Chocolate Package lets you do both.
Deliver comforting Alberta-made chocolate goodness to family, friends, team members and clients across Canada as we hunker down this winter. Deliver self-care in a box and do it with all your heart.
When your recipient opens their box they will find:
– A hand-written note with a message you’d like to share (our team puts your heart into this)
– Information about the two Alberta heart health programs that your purchase supports (The Libin Cardiovacular Institute’s CV & Me Women’s Heart Health Initiative in Calgary and the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Insititute’s Ventricular Assist Device Program in Edmonton).
– Comforting chocolate-y recipes from our kitchen to yours
– Chocolate from 11 Albertan chocolatiers and confectioners. From St. Albert, Edmonton, Sherwood Park, Calgary, and Cochrane, we’ve travelled over 400 kilometers to connect you with Alberta’s premier chocolate artisans. It’s a one of a kind collection just for you and those you care about!
