I don’t know about you, but I have been feeling a bit helpless lately.
There is so much despair and tragedy and turmoil going on around the world. People who need help.
Some are far away and some a closer then we know.
What can I do about it?
Last night I wanted an episode of Secret Millionaire. Its a neat premise… a millionaire goes ‘undercover’ as a volunteer and sees first hand the true hero’s of this nation. Then (I think its their choice but I don’t know) they are able to donate money to those charities and people that impacted them the most.
Now, I can’t hand someone a check for $40,000. But I can evaluate what my gifts are and choose to share those as often as people will allow me.
I decided this.
Over the course of the next three months, I will be giving away 10 dozen cookies. Two dozen to five separate winners.
Winners you say? Just who are these winners?
You. Your friends. Your family. A stranger that you know needs to experience some joy.
How do you enter?
Just leave a comment nominating someone you know (and please, feel free to talk about yourself! You might be your own best advocate here!) who could use a little tiny spot of sunshine in their day.
Do you know someone who is dealing with health issues? Who lost a loved one? Who has been out of work? Who is raising their kids on their own? Who has had the flu for two weeks? Whose child has a birthday coming up? Who always brings your garbage up for you on garbage day? Who brings so much joy and happiness to others that you want them to experience a little of their own?
I will be choosing five people to receive two dozen free personalized cookies. You can choose something from my cookie gallery or we can come up with a truly individualized gift for that special someone. I will cover materials, time, and shipping.
The only thing I need from you is someone to share it with.
Now. Its just cookies. I know that. I wish I could do more… give more. For now, I am hoping that someone receiving a delicious and personalized treat in the mail will be a well deserved moment of bliss. That they will feel special.
I cant do this alone! I need your help.
I will keep the comments open for about one week, depending on the amount of entries.
Please, only one entry per person. Entries limited to US delivery only.
Due to there being so many awesome and heartfelt and inspirational nominations, I am going to close the comments an little earlier then expected. I was silly to think there would only be a few of you leaving comments… every one of you is beyond generous and thoughtful!
I will be posting winners probably next week, as I really need some time to pray over and process these requests. You all have humbled me beyond words with your giving hearts! Thank you!
