Our hearts and thoughts are always with you, but they've been especially so this week as we know how many of you and your loved ones have felt the impact of Hurricane Sandy and its aftermath.
We are so deeply grateful for how many of you have expressed concern for our Team, since we're a New York City company. We experienced only brief closures and slight delays at our kitchen and office. Thankfully, all our chocolate is safe and sound. Many of our beloved neighbors, friends, and wholesale partners were not so lucky and are now struggling to fulfill basic needs like shelter, warmth, and clothing.
What affects you, affects us. Our hearts break for your losses and we want to be of service to you in any way we can as you recover your strength (and we have unwavering faith that you will).
We'll be donating 5% of all online proceeds for the next ten days to the Red Cross to support their relief efforts for victims of Hurricane Sandy.
For those of you who are looking for ways to help, please see the links below.

Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity.
With Love from all of Team Gnosis,
