PRIDE MONTH HAVE A BREAK, AND CELEBRATE WHO YOU ARE.
KitKat® is once again partnering with local Toronto 2SLGBTQIA+ organization Friends of Ruby. Friends of Ruby's mission is to support the progressive well-being of 2SLGBTQIA+ youth. Together, KitKat® and Friends of Ruby want to celebrate individuality and self-expression by encouraging the world to #CelebrateWhoYouAre. KitKat® and Friends of Ruby will be marching together in support of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community at the Toronto Pride Parade this year on June 25th, 2023. KitKat® will also distribute the limited-edition KitKat® Pride Bars at the Toronto Pride Street Fair to encourage the community to not only have a break but to also #CelebrateWhoYouAre.
You can support the 2SLGBTQIA+ community to have a break and celebrate their individuality by purchasing KitKat® Limited Edition Pride Bars available on SKIP EXPRESS in major cities across Canada where 100% of the proceeds will be donated back to Friends of Ruby.
This particular month is especially important as it's focused on raising awareness of the challenges that 2SLGBTQIA+ youth face. It is a month to recognize and support communities in the pursuit of unequivocal rights to be known, be heard, be understood, be accepted, be respected, and to celebrate the beauty of who we are. It calls for celebration and embracing everyone, no matter who they love or how they identify. That's why we've proudly partnered with Friends of Ruby to create another limited edition KitKat® Bar to celebrate individuality, self-expression, and self-love.Support Now
A message from our President
At KitKat®, we are committed to encouraging individuality and self-expression. We are proud to be partnering with Friends of Ruby to celebrate the 2SLGBTQIA+ community and uplift all lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex and two-spirit young people to feel empowered in their identities.
KitKat® & Friends of Ruby's Journey so far
In February 2022, KitKat® launched a two-year partnership with Toronto 2SLGBTQIA+ organization, Friends of Ruby, just in time for Chosen Family Day. This is a day that acknowledges important relationships and support systems within the community.
Friends of Ruby
The support system that is created through Chosen Families fosters an environment that promotes kinship, belonging and celebrates layered identities. Friends of Ruby facilitates spaces for LGBTQI2S youth to express themselves and find community. We are thrilled to collaborate with KitKat® to reiterate the value and need of Chosen Families.
The partnership included financial support of the Friends of Ruby mental health programs and the release of a limited-edition KitKat® bar that was available for the month of February. This was a one-of-a-kind ruby chocolate bar that featured special packaging designed by the Friends of Ruby team. All proceeds from every sale were donated to Friends of Ruby.
HAVE A BREAK, AND CELEBRATE WHO YOU ARE.
KitKat® and local Toronto 2SLGBTQIA+ organization, Friends of Ruby, continued their partnership during Pride Month 2022.
Friends of Ruby's mission is to support the progressive well-being of 2SLGBTQIA+ youth. Together, KitKat® and Friends of Ruby celebrated individuality and self-expression by encouraging the world to #CelebrateWhoYouAre.
KitKat® created another limited edition KitKat® Bar that celebrated individuality, self-expression, and self-love, with all proceeds going directly to Friends of Ruby.
HAVE A BREAK, AND CELEBRATE TOGETHER.
