by Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind
2020 is the year of online shopping. Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind [CGDB] and Purdy’s Chocolatier have partnered for a fundraising campaign for the 2020 holiday season. You can purchase chocolate for gifts, or just for yourself, and support CGDB, providing professionally trained guide dogs to Canadians who are visually impaired since 1984.
Order chocolate online, pay the same prices as in Purdy’s stores, and 25% of the price is donated to CGDB. Order before the deadline of November 25, 2020, and then plan for safe, curbside pick up at Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind, 4120 Rideau Valley Drive North, Ottawa between December 21-24.
Stay safe, support an amazing cause and, best of all, get or give chocolate! To order, or for more details, go to the events page at www.guidedogs.ca, Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind.
Purdy’s Chocolatier is a Canadian chocolatier with a rich history. Founder, Richard Carmon Purdy, started selling homemade chocolates in downtown Vancouver in 1907. After 100+ years of crafting fine chocolates, you get to know a thing or two about doing it right. Truly Canadian and truly delicious, Purdys is a family-owned company that’s proudly all about chocolate.
CGDB was established as a registered charity in 1984, and has provided more than 880 professionally trained guide dogs to Canadians who are visually impaired from coast to coast. CGDB also operates an Assistance Dogs Division, which trains assistance dogs for individuals in the Ottawa area with mobility-related disabilities.
