While some people may just cash in on something so viral, Dominique Ansel used Cronuts for a cause. He partnered with Shake Shack to create a limited edition Cronut Hole Concrete, raising $5,000 for widows of New York Police Department officers and their children.
When asked what achievement he was most proud of, he didn't give an expected reply: "What I'm most proud of is to be able . . . to give back to others in need. It's great to participate and be a part of the food scene in New York and be able to reach out to other people and raise money for a good cause." The Cronut and Dominique have contributed thousands of dollars to countless charities.
