01.12.2013 · A Holiday Season without Toothache – Let’s Send Paloma to the Dentist!

€2 From Each Purchased Black Tin of The Love of Chilies Helps Pay Donkey Paloma’s Dental Bill

We love chilies and we love animals. One of our favorites is the donkey Paloma.

Paloma is 23 years old. She had a very distressed past. Paloma was found suffering in the sun without water in a crater of a small volcano in the middle of the island of Lanzarote. Luckily, Paloma was rescued and found a home. Our friends take care of her, the owners of the Finca la Sarantontona, the organic and sustainable farm where our pequin chilies grow.

An old donkey like Paloma occasionally needs medicine and the budget of the farm allows for homeopathic treatments. However, Paloma has a serious tooth problem and will need to go to the dentist in the next weeks. Any monetary contribution towards the dentist visit will be of great help for the farm. And Paloma will be thankful, too, with a less painful tooth.

With each purchased black tin of The Love of Chilies until New Year we will donate €2 towards Paloma’s dentist visit. Thank you very much.

About us

Josefina Petrus and
Anna Yukiko Bickenbach

We love chilies; both of us from childhood. Our backgrounds could not have been more different. Josefina accompanied her parents on trips to India. Anna grew up on three continents, including on the island of Okinawa, where chilies are soaked in sake.

Both of us have had the opportunity to do many fantastic things. Josefina has produced films, coached basketball, worked for the charity platform and served as a Board Member of a British school. Anna plays serious volleyball and co-founded the ecological platform Ecotastic.

We don’t like to compromise… if it is possible to have the best quality, why do for less. And we casually relish chilies like others do candy.
