Help Someone Out - And Get Cookies!

Now this is just damn cool, folks.

Help a Family Hit by Sandy & Get Cookies!
My best friend in high school moved into her first house in Rockaway, NY with her new husband and their small child not too long ago. I knew they were hit hard by Hurricane Sandy, but sadly I'm out of touch now that I live way up in NH, and didn't know the extent of the damage until recently.
My first thought when I heard the full extent of these problems was, "What can I do to help when I'm so far away?" I can't help with the clean up. I can't take her out to cheer her up. And I personally don't have enough money to send her way to make any kind of difference.

But, I can bake a darn good cookie. I've made these enormous cookies for a local fundraiser the past few years, and each time we raise a decent amount of money - and that's just with local kids selling them door-to-door. I'm hoping by selling them through Indiegogo I can reach a ton of compassionate, cookie-loving people and raise enough money to make a real impact for her!!

Seriously, go take a look at those cookies.Five damn ounces. That's more than a quarter pound of cookie. There's four different types of cookies to choose from: Chocolate chip, M&M, Peanut Butter, and "everything". All of them are huge, all of them look positively delicious, and when you're eating your monster cookie, you'll feel good because you're helping someone out.

There's just no way to lose (and I have it on good authority that charity cookies have no calories. True story).

That is all.

Not a bad idea! I'll see what I can do.

Cookies and chocolate tend to shed calories during shipping. They have to move so fast that it cuts their energy content in half. And if you eat them while standing up, you burn calories. Oh, and calories tend to leak out of broken cookies. Really. Honest and for trues.
