Change a child’s world…with chocolate!

Founder's Note

Bellafina Chocolates was created for the sole purpose of helping vulnerable children.  We support our mission by making some of the best chocolate on the planet!  All net proceeds, after expenses, are directed to charities helping children threatened by disease, poverty, abuse, or neglect.

I have been abundantly blessed in my life.  We didn’t have a lot of money growing up, but my parents provided a safe, nurturing home with a strong emphasis on education and accomplishing as much as possible in our lives.  It is heartbreaking to see so many children who do not have these advantages.

I started Bellafina Chocolates in my spare time while working as a Vice President in a Fortune 500 industrial company.  I wanted to help underprivileged kids and we quickly raised several thousand dollars for children’s charities.  Barely a year later a corporate restructuring left me without a job and pondering what to do with the second half of my career.  I believe that God gives us certain gifts, talents, and circumstances for a specific purpose.  It is difficult to be sure of that purpose, but for my part I am dedicating myself to growing this company to the point that it can make a really significant impact on children’s lives.

We have a big, hairy, audacious goal to create a company that can write million dollar checks to charity and can continue doing so long after I am gone.  We appreciate your support and your help to share our message with your friends!

Stay tuned as we journey this path together, and may God bless you and your family.
