Here at Tastebuds we love to have fun and celebrate all things chocolate, however sometimes we also like to take a moment and look at how we can make a change. We have an ongoing interest in giving back to the community and dedicating our time to try and help those less fortunate. Throughout the year we like to donate the proceeds from some of our bouquets to different causes. These causes are ones special to our hearts and with them in mind we like to create bouquets especially for them.
We are currently partnered with a wonderful organisation called The Full Stop Foundation. The Full Stop Foundation works to expand trauma counselling services for those who have experienced sexual assault and domestic violence, and to change the attitudes and behaviours that allow violence against women and children to occur. Funding these types of counselling and support systems help women affected by these traumatic events. Their other important aim is to provide prevention training. This is looking forwards to help to create a society where sexual assault and domestic violence are no longer tolerated.
Another cause close to our hearts is the plight of further research towards the disease Multiple Sclerosis. Another of our charity bouquets has been developed in partnership with Multiple Sclerosis Research Australia. This bouquet is a bid to help fund the prevention and treatment of MS in Australia. MS Research Australia is the largest not-for-profit organisation dedicated to funding, coordinating and advocating for MS research in Australia, as part of the worldwide effort to unravel the complexity of MS.
If you would like to help us raise funds for these amazing causes it is so easy! To contribute $10 of your purchase to The Full Stop Foundation simply purchase one of our Lilacs & Violets Bouquets, otherwise to donate $10 to MS Research Australia simply purchase our Silver Star Burst Bouquet. Purchasing one of our charity bouquets is not only a great gift for someone, but a way to give back to the community! Everybody wins!
