In 2015, premium chocolatier Lindt USA entered its seventh year as a corporate partner with Autism Speaks to raise funds and awareness for autism during the Easter season. The funds raised help Autism Speaks support individuals with autism and their families through a variety of ways, including educational toolkits for newly diagnosed families, grants for community programs, and scholarship funding to educational institutions. To date, Lindt has donated more than $845,000 to Autism Speaks, proving that one small bunny can make one big difference.
Lindt donated 10 cents to Autism Speaks for every Lindt GOLD BUNNY, the best-selling chocolate in the U.S., purchased at retailers, Lindt Chocolate Shops and online. The iconic Lindt GOLD BUNNY is the only bunny that gives back and we feel honored to be chosen as this bunny’s charity of choice!
In 2015, Lindt also raised additional funds through the sixth Lindt GOLD BUNNY Celebrity Auction. Porcelain versions of the iconic Lindt GOLD BUNNY autographed by top celebrities in the entertainment, sports, food and music industries, were auctioned. One hundred percent of the auction proceeds were donated directly to Autism Speaks.
