The last few weeks my life has been consumed by the National Cookie Swap. I was approached by Ishay from www.FoodandtheFabulous.com to run the Durban leg of the swap.With my crazy life , this was something I could not do on my own so I enlisted Fay from http://Thesparklinglabyrinth.wordpress.com.
The big event is on Saturday the 14TH with a few spots still remaining in each city. WHAT IS COOKIE SWAP?
The idea behind Cookie Swap is to create awareness via tweets, posts and other social media all while raising money for Khayelitsha cookies and spreading the Cookie Cheer. Cookie swap is a fun event where people get together and do just that: swap cookies! Everyone brings 60 cookies or treats with them to the event and the cookies are swapped, sampled and taken home to enjoy.
WHY KHAYELITSHA COOKIES ?
Khayelitsha Cookies is an organization that empowers, educates and assists women in the community with employment within the organisation (making and selling cookies). All funds raised at Cookie Swaps through ticket sales and the auction will go towards Khayelitsha Cookies. Funding is required to better the working conditions of staff and purchase much needed shoes for the factory workers. The aim is also to create awareness about Khayelitsha Cookies and what they do so that they may grow and help even more people.
This year all three Cookie Swaps will be using the united hash tag #cookieswap3. Tickets for your entry into Cookie swap can be paid for at the door, however it is essential to reserve tickets in advance with your city host as tickets are limited for each event.
