As a mother, when I hear that another mother has a dilemma, my heart wants to reach out and help. Recently, I received a request from a woman who is currently in Afghanistan serving in the US Military. She was very brief in her message but stated that she wanted to send her four year old son an assortment of his favorite super hero cookies for him and his  friends to have for his Halloween pre-school party which she cannot attend (because she's in the military) but she wanted him to know that she was thinking about him.

My first thought was, of course! Then, the more I started to think about it, I thought how nice would it be if I could round up other cookie artists (who, like me, wear their heart on their sleeve) and have each cookier create one of this little boy's favorite super heroes and mail it to him in a box with a special message from his, in total, the boy would receive 14 cookies in 14 different boxes with 14 different messages telling him how much his mother loves him and misses him.

I spoke with the little boy's father on the phone yesterday and he was completely humbled by the thought and is totally in. He said his son would be over the moon.

So far, I have myself and one other cookier who will be participating. I need 12 others. If you're interested, please send me a message on here with your direct email and I will email you instructions. The cookies need to arrive NO LATER than October 29th.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope to hear from you.
