Blue Marble Ice Cream

The health and happiness of our community is a top priority for us.

That’s why we do our best to respond to the needs of our friends and neighbors. This commitment extends far beyond Brooklyn…and in fact stretches all the way to Butare, Rwanda! In this gorgeous little town, we partnered with a group of local women to create Sweet Dreams, their country’s first-ever ice cream shop. We opened our doors on June 5, 2010 and are proud to report that the shop is achieving success beyond our wildest hopes.

Sweet Dreams was brought to life through our non-profit initiative, Blue Marble Dreams, and its many generous donors. The mission of Blue Marble Dreams is to support the joy and prosperity of communities in need through the (unlikely) medium of ice cream. Meet our partners and learn more about the tremendous work they’re doing in Rwanda:

If you are a local school or 501(c)3 organization seeking a donation, we’d love to hear from you. Please understand that while we try to give as generously as we can to the many deserving groups out there, we’re still a small business and can only stretch our budget so far.

We are most eager to support organizations that provide children with opportunities to…

  • Learn and thrive
  • Eat well and feel good
  • Imagine and create

If you feel your organization is a good match, please let us know how we can help you by writing to  We look forward to hearing from you and hope to support your important work!
