Purdys Chocolatier is a family-owned Canadian chocolatier that was established in 1907. In celebration of Pride month, Purdys has commissioned Canadian-Taiwanese, queer artist, Edward Fu-Chen Juan, to design a special edition chocolate gift box called the “All Together Now Gift Box” that eatures Edward’s incredible artwork and includes 16 pieces of Purdys chocolate, hand-picked by Edward.

This partnership with Edward is in support of The Get REAL Movement, a non-profit organization combating 2SLGBTQ+ discrimination, racism and bullying in school, summer camps and workplaces.

$5 from every purchase of the “All Together Now Gift Box” will be donated to The Get REAL Movement, with a goal of raising $30,000 through Purple Partnerships, their new philanthropic initiative, with a portion of the proceeds coming from the All Together Now Gift Box.

The Purdys team is dedicated to making themselves better every single day. That’s why they’ve launched Purple Partnership, an initiative where they partner with amazing organizations to support their missions, strengthen their voice and inspire themselves and their communities to stand for the same values. A few of these communities include 2SLGBTQ@+, BIPOC, women and youth facing vulnerabilities, women’s health causes and sustainable cocoa.

The entire Pride collection will be available online and in shops starting June 1, 2021.
