First Referral Order

I've been busy filling cookie orders and I'm very appreciative to everyone for placing their orders. If you didn't know already, every cent that people pay for the cookies, I donate directly to Camp For All Kids. It's an organization that sends disadvantaged youth to summer camp. Pretty soon I'm going to have to start covering the costs of my materials but right now, it all goes right to them.

One of my dearest friends placed an order for her older daughter's 7th birthday party a few weeks ago. What else does a 7 year old girl want but peace signs? So here they are:
Sorry for the horrible picture, I forgot to snap them before I bagged them. Notice the note attached to the cookies... It was very important to this little girl that her friends know that these were no ordinary favors. She wanted her friends to know that by purchasing these cookies, she was performing a mitzvah, or a good deed. So all of the cookies had notes attached to them letting everyone know that all the money was going to Camp For All Kids and a brief blurb to let them know what that was. Sweet girl.

I'm very pleased to say that from this order I received my first referral order, from a complete stranger. Up until now its been friends and acquaintances ordering. A mom of one of the girls who got a Peace cookie told her sister-in-law about the cookie and then she placed an order for her son's 2nd birthday party. And if peace signs are for a 7 year old girls, what could be for a 2 year old boy? Sports balls!
