Amanda from "I am baker" organized amazing action - Desserts for Deserving. It's such a great idea - simply to give a stranger the gift of joy! There are so many people who are going through difficult time, health problems, family problems etc. I was crying when reading nominations - there are so many people around us who need help. But this showed me as well that there are a lot of people out there who want to help and put a smile on stranger's face! So, after reading the 1st post from Amanda, I was already in :)
I started thinking what to make for the person who needed cheering up?
Something sweet and comforting....COOKIES :)
I prepared 2 varieties- simple but nice plain sugar cookies and cookies with chocolate (chocolate is always a good choice, isn't it?)
But I decided that my cookies are not only to create nice sweet feeling, but I'm sending it as well to cheer somebody up.
So I made cookies with the message: Love, Good and Brave
I wanted to show this lovely person that somebody cares and whatever they're going through, there's hope and there are people who are there for them.
I added little heart cookies as well :)
I really, really hope that person who received my package enjoyed it..
I definitely enjoyed preparing it. I feel honoured that I could take part in this special action.
If I managed to put a smile on face of somebodies face that's the best rewards ever!
I hope that Desserts for Deserving will continue to grow.
Before next edition will come, I plan to send a few packages to some people "just because".
