Check out this sweet business model called CHOCaid. CHOCaid Specializes in Gourmet Chocolate gifts with a conscience. The 100% organic bars are made by CHOCaids partner in Switzerland who have been making Fairtrade Organic Chocolate for over 50 years. The best part is a portion of sales go to hunger relief agency “Save the Children”

“We aim to generate funds for world-wide hunger relief projects by redirecting part of the money spent on chocolate to men, women and children who can only dream of such an indulgence. There are a staggering 790 million people in the world who are hungry. 24,000 are estimated to die from hunger or hunger-related causes every day, three quarters are children. “
