The story of Chocolate Gelt Mosaic
It all started with an idea to make art from chocolate coins. Everyone loves art and everyone loves chocolate gelt so these two seemed like a perfect fun match.
Chocolategelt.com works with a designer in Israel, she makes our beautiful Purim mishloach manot packaging line which has been used by sisterhoods and schuls across the country since 2006 to make Purim fundraisers.
We approached our designer with the idea of making this work of art. We are so greateful for her artistry and technical expertise, she was able to some up with a mock up for the art and make it incredibly precise for each coin to fit in place.
The next step was to have this file printed and we did exactly that by ordering it from Megaprint. The banner size was 10 ft by 12 ft and it was printed in a matter of days on a beautiful white vinyl fabric.
As Chanukah 2016 was approaching we still didn't have a place to make this project happen. We talked with several organizations and finally found a great solution. This is where customer service and having wonderful relationships with our customers made a real impact.
Dix Hills Jewish Center has been our customer for years, when we shared our idea with its director, he loved the idea and so did the rabbi. We confirmed within a matter of days and the count down to the event began.
We didn't have much time to promote the event because Chanukah was approaching fast and we were busy filling the orders and sending them out.
We were thrilled when over 300 came to celebrate the third night of Chanbukah at Dix Hills Jewish Center despite the clouds and the rain.
We thank Dix Hills Jewish Center for hosting the event and making a special place for our Chocolate Gelt Mosaic. We wish to express the excitement that happened on that night but it's nearly impossible. The volunteers making it had a sense of participating in an unforgettable important event. The children stopped running, stood and looked at the mosaic mesmerized. The adults were happy taking pictures of their kids in front of this work of art.
At the end we gave away all of 7500 coins that went into making this mosaic. It was fun! All children filled their bags with chocolate coins and were happy to be part of this celebration.
We hope we made the world smile on that night and inspired young minds to create.
