Help us Support Nepal Earthquake Relief Efforts

Zak's Chocolate will be donating 25 cents from the sale of every chocolate bar, retroactive to May 1 until May 31, to support earthquake relief efforts in Nepal. 

There is a connection between our chocolate bars and Nepal...

Many of you have commented on the interesting and colorful papers we use to wrap our bars. What you may not know is that these papers, called Lokta, are handmade in Nepal by local women co-operatives and the fibers come from a sustainable source, the bark of the Daphne plant. 

We have been guided by our U.S. Lokta distributor to a local charity in Nepal with people already on the ground that can have the most direct, local impact in supporting relief efforts. We are proud to make our donation to Ganga Ghar. You can check them out at http://www.gangaghar.org

Please join us in supporting our friends and paper suppliers in Nepal.
