The Herzeel entrepreneur Eva Van der Stockt collects money for the operation of BiJeVa (read more via this link), a Zottegem organization that supports underprivileged families in the region. With the sale of Sinterklaas boxes, Eva wants to contribute to the Sinterklaas celebration that vzw BiJeVa organizes annually for children who would otherwise not receive a visit from Sinterklaas at home due to financial problems. The Sintkadoosjes contain Sinterklaas chocolate from 3 different local chocolatiers and come in 3 different sizes.
“Another 3 weeks until the Saint comes by. But what if the holy man does not pass by some families year after year? After all, many underprivileged families are unable to celebrate Sinterklaas financially.
I want to do something about this great injustice.” says Eva, manager of De Streekboutique (read more via this link). “With the sale of Sinterklaas boxes I want to financially support the organization of the Sinterklaas party. The beautifully decorated boxes are filled with delicious chocolate from 3 local chocolatiers from Erpe-Mere, Maarkedal and Ronse. They contain hollow figures, filled figures and marzipan fries and are available in 3 sizes. Depending on the size, 2, 3 or 5 euros per box sold will go to the Sinterklaas party of non-profit organization BiJeVa. The target? Be able to donate at least 250 euros. The collaboration with non-profit organization BiJeVa fits perfectly with the concept of De Streekboutique, a webshop specialized in artisanal and small-scale produced products from the Flemish Ardennes. Anny De Windt, the driving force behind non-profit organization BiJeVa, is a passionate lady with local commitment. She is committed to families from our region who are struggling financially. We keep it 100% local: local chocolatiers, a local entrepreneur and a local organisation. With the purchase of a Sintka box, you not only support non-profit organization BiJeVa, but the local economy also gets a boost.”
