Thank you Mink Chocolates

Mink Chocolates located in downtown Vancouver have a unique program called Mink Cares. This family-run chocolate cafe’s staff donate 100% of their tips to a different charity each month. In August 2009, the staff of Mink donated over $400 to the West Coast Book Prize Society. In return, each staff member received a tax receipt for their proportional share of the donation. As Mink says, “It’s [our] way of giving back to the community, and we gratefully thank all our customers for their generous support.”

To express our thanks, last month we stopped by with a Certificate of Appreciation. (from left to right) Bryan Pike, Executive Director of the BC Book Prizes; Marc Lieberman, manager; and staff members Estrella Pedroso, Benjamin Allen, Alesia Vengerskaya, and Staci Volkhina.
