We know that this Candy & Money Lei will not make up for all they are missing out on their senior year. It is not easy to go from being with friends every day to homeschooling in your bedrooms. But we hope that Cash and Chocolate might help to make things a little bit better. I mean, they are two big necessities, right?

We hope that all of you are staying safe and enjoying your time at home with your loved ones. Home schooling your kids is not easy but we are in this together and you are not alone. Even if it feels like you are. Just remember that this too shall pass.
