A special thanks to Lauren Sheahen of Catholic Relief Services for sharing the great information on CRS’ partnership with Cocoa Farmers in the Philippines – sounds like a win/win situation!  Click here to read Lauren’s fascinating blog post and enjoy this video that will undoubtedly have you craving some chocolate!

Please also help support Catholic Relief Services by including them in your family’s Lenten giving this year.  They have an amazing Gift Catalog with an array of choices that will help you find something special to share with a friend and stamp out poverty and hunger while you’re giving.
