Campaign provides all profits to charities
The Hawai’i Fudge Company is opening its program, which provides all profits to participating charities, to five more groups.
An earler test for the program generated $11,000 that was raised and disbursed in 15 days for charities including Maui Onstage, Boo Boo Zoo, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, Aloha Shriners and Willie K Cancer Fund, according to an announcement.
Interested charities should apply by email to Jonathan@HawaiiFudge.com stating their charity name, charity purpose, contact person and contact phone and email.
The Hawai’i Fudge Company runs this program for 60 days with each approved charity with a goal of $15,000 to be paid out to each charity and $500,000 planned for the campaign to support the community this year, the news release said.
“We are so thrilled to be able to give to our community during these passionately challenging times,” said Jonathan Todd, senior vice president at The Hawai’i Fudge Company. “Most amazing is the support of our community and the Mainland for our charities. It’s hard for a charity to ask for money directly right now. COVID-19 has so many people out of work or making less than they used to. Instead of a direct ask, we offer charities a unique link that they email to their supporter list and post on their Facebook or social media sites. Supporters are informed that shopping through the link provides all the profits of these orders to their charity. People are getting a little taste of Hawaii and some decadence during stressful times, knowing that the profits go to support what they care about.”
