We civilians don’t generally think or remember that our military is made up of a lot of parents. While they’re overseas, their kids pay a price for that service. Their parents can’t attend kid-important events like birthdays, ball games or the birth of their newest child.
The Open Sky Project – an online platform for retailers to come together and share their passion, knowledge and expertise via an online “Main Street” consumers can trust – has teamed up with Army Wife Magazine, Beautiful Sweets and EnvironmentalBooty.com. The result of this partnership is a celebration of all the kids of military families with their Cookies for the Ones They Love… a Made in America Bake Sale to Benefit Our Littlest of Patriots.
The Open Sky Project is, says founder John Caplan, about real people connecting consumers to the products they love and use.
One retailer who demonstrates her passion about increasing people’s awareness of the importance of green in people’s lives is Ms. Shane Shirley-Smith, founder of EnvironmentalBooty.
A green lifestyle blogger, Shirley-Smith says “”when we find ourselves thanking a Vet for their service, we should thank their children for the sacrifices they have made too.”
Backing this sentiment with action, between now and August 31st, Shirley-Smith will donate all the proceeds from sales of Beautiful Sweets patriotic themed organic cookies sold in her Environmental Booty OpenSky Shop to send a sweet “thank you” to the kids of Army parents. This Nationwide Patriotic bake sale will show our youngest Patriots that we appreciate the sacrifices they make for our country, just as we appreciate the sacrifices their parents make.
Made here in the USA, these patriotic themed cookies are shaped like an American Flag, an eagle or a star.They’ve been featured on national TV programs including:
- The Food Network’s ‘Recipe for Success’
- “‘Roker on the Road”
- on CBS’s ‘The Early Show’ with celebrity designer Colin Cowie,
- NBC’s The Today Show with designer Chris Madden
- and Univision’s ‘Ver Para Creer’
These fresh-made cookies are made with the finest organic ingredients and are carefully packed with recycled eco-friendly materials.
The more Beautiful Sweets you, your friends and family buy at the virtual Made in America Bake Sale, the more Patriotic treats they can provide for the kids. It seems a simple thing to do that can have a big impact on a child’s life.
To participate in this National Bake Sale and make a real difference for kids, go to Environmental Booty. It’s an easy way to make a child smile.
