peace by chocolate on valentine’s day and every day.


This is a true and incredible human story, of a refugee family losing everything, leaving their home, and finding a new home and new life in an unexpected place and in unexpected ways. I’ve been following their story since their arrival in Canada and they are a wonderful example of will, grit, tenacity, family, compassion, overcoming odds, and a sheer refusal to give up. They are paying it forward by giving back to the people in their new community and beyond. Supporting those who welcomed them and may need the help that they so generously received when they were in desperate need. Plus, their chocolate in incredible.

So exciting!

We are so happy to announce that the movie based on our story, Peace by Chocolate – The Film is coming to theatres, exclusively at Cineplex across Canada on May 6th and the official trailer of the movie was finally released. This movie is a platform to share hope with Canadians and the world -something we all need more than anything these days. See you all at the theatres this spring. (no date yet for u.s. or international openings)

but it is giving me that which you need more than I do.”

  1. I know there must be countless other stories like this that we never hear or read about. We need to be writing a happy story. A kind word and a smile here and there. A helping hand or two or three.

    Like any new task it takes practice and hard work and sacrifice. Then helping becomes natural. Thanks for sharing chocolate today. We should never underestimate the power for good we have.

  2. Oh, my, this is so moving to witness such blessed developments. There are wonders and miracles happening every day, the more we are open to them, open to new beginnings, the more likely they will happen. Thank you for sharing this, Beth.

  3. This is my kind of story. My work in progress involves a friendship between two middle schoolers—a Muslim American boy and an English American boy. What makes their friendship challenging is that the English father is racist.

    I will be looking for this film. The trailer looks great!
