We are proud to donate a portion of the sales of this special red
Pierre's Chocolates Valentine's Day box to Avery's Hope.
This organization is named for the founders' grandson, Avery Harris, who was born with Microvillus Inclusion Disease. Both Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh have been instrumental in his care. This charity gives back by raising money for the families who find themselves at these hospitals and whose insurance doesn't come close to covering all of the expenses associated with rare GI diseases.
Avery was born September 7, 2014 in Hackettstown, NJ. After what seemed like a healthy delivery he became very sick and it took months to figure out the diagnosis. After several months at a local hospital he was transported to CHOP and they were able to save his life. The majority of Avery's first year was spent on the 5th floor with all the other GI patients. His family realized how many other kids and their families were suffering and wanted to try and make a difference.
