Peace and Greetings! What's better than exquisite chocolate and beautiful artwork? Giving! I am super excited about a sweet collaboration with the amazing chocolatier Kathy D' Agostino of Chocolata' Chocolate in downtown Birmingham, Alabama! We have come together in the spirit of creativity, love and community with the "Dea Africa" series, raising funds for our community through the YOGI DADA Fund! My goal with this fund is to support 25 serious Black Art Students in Birmingham, AL and surrounding areas to enjoy a  $100 scholarship for premium art supplies at Forstall Art Center located in at 2009 3rd Ave North in downtown Birmingham, AL.

Our collaboration will donate 50% of the proceeds from each bar to this fund.  Every bite helps a young Artist in need. I have chosen four of my favorite YOGI DADA designs to wrap around her artisan gourmet chocolate bars. They are an experience in every bite! From rare premium vegan dark chocolate to creamy white chocolate and everything in between, these four artisan chocolate bars will tantalize your taste buds! Order one bar or try all four in our limited edition Collector's box!

I was a Fine Art Student in the 90's who was on financial aid, covering the cost of supplies was challenging at times. In addition to  tuition, books and  studio costs, the cost of additional art supplies and art kits was sometimes more than my parents could afford. I worked semesters on and off to save up money and my grandmother stepped in often to help. I want to make it a little easier for our budding Artists. Here's to our Artists of the future!

Thank you in advance for your kind generosity and your investment in our future.
