#SweetRelief will see the restaurant’s owners, management team, front-of-house and back-of-house staff work 24 hours straight serving patrons with the goal of raising $50,000. Chambar is challenging local businesses to match dollar for dollar what participating staff is able to raise, on the condition they last the entire 24 hours. Interested donors can also pledge their support online at*

As part of their commitment to this worthy cause, Chambar owners Karri and Nico Schuermans have imported Liberia Pure Honey so that each #SweetRelief guest will receive a complimentary 2 oz. ampoule (while supplies last).

Devastated by last year’s Ebola outbreak, 83% of Liberia’s population lives on less than $1.73 CDN per day. Universal Outreach’s Advanced Beekeeper’s Training Program and its Liberia Pure Honey social enterprise and sales division allow a mostly rural population of subsistence farmers to supplement their income with a marketable skill that does not require displacement from their family land. Beekeeping is also an alternative to income through deforestation.

Join Chambar for dinner, a late-night meal, an even later late-night meal, or Easter Brunch between 4pm on Saturday, March 26 and 4pm on Sunday, March 27. For more information, please visit

*All donations made through the fundraising site will receive a tax receipt.
