Bellafina Chocolates is Offering a Special Edition Valentine's Day Gifts to Benefit Kuda Vana Children's Home in Zimbabwe

A Sweet Way to Help Sweet Children

Kingsport, TN, February 02, 2018 --( Bellafina Chocolates and Kuda Vana Partnership are pleased to announce a new collaboration to help orphans and abandoned children in Zimbabwe. This Valentine’s Day, Bellafina Chocolates is featuring gifts with beautiful artwork created by the children and 100% of profits benefit Kuda Vana Children’s Home. Gifts can be ordered online and shipped across the U.S.

“It’s an honor to work with an organization such as Kuda Vana Partnership who is truly committed to loving and nurturing some of the most vulnerable children of the world,” said Brenda Barnicki, Founder and President of Bellafina Chocolates. “Supporting Kuda Vana is a natural fit with our mission to help threatened children and we’re thrilled to be a part of this endeavor.”

Kuda Vana, which means “loving children” in Shona, is a community of children being raised as a family by staff members. They are provided love, nutrition, security, healthcare, education, life-skills, and spiritual and emotional guidance which will enable them to live more independent, dignified, and enriched lives.

“One of the amazing things that God has done over and over at Kuda Vana is unite people from different backgrounds and places,” said Tara Petersen, Director of Development for Kuda Vana Partnership. “Finding Bellafina Chocolates, with their love for children that is so similar to our own, is another example of this!”

As Valentine’s Day approaches, Bellafina Chocolates will feature elegant artisan chocolate truffles in special edition gift boxes showcasing several paintings by children at the Kuda Vana Children’s Home. Customers also have the option to select other personal or corporate gifts from across the Bellafina Chocolates website and can designate profits to benefit Kuda Vana Partnership.

“One of my favorite things about Bellafina Chocolates is that 100% of profits are donated to charity,” said customer Martha Cole. “For me, it’s a feel-good gift to give and receive.”
