Christmas Cookies for International Justice Mission: Take II

Greetings!

This is the second year I've undertaken to raise money for International Justice Mission via baking and selling ten boxes of my very best, all-time favorite cookies.  Each cookie is hand-made using only the finest ingredients - Valrhona feves, Guittard cocoa, Nielsen-Massey vanilla, and more.  If you're viewing this because I advertised locally, thank you, I hope you will consider a box!  If you're a regular blog-reader, family member or friend I am sorry that I am *not* shipping this year, but if you have even just $1.00 to spare please view the video on my campaign page, by clicking HERE, and consider donating to help fight the most oppressive of human rights abuses.

About IJM:
  • IJM is a U.S.-based non-profit human rights organization that rescues victims from the most horrific and oppressive of human-rights abuses, such as: Child Sex Trafficking, Adult Sex Trafficking, Forced Labor Slavery, and Justice System Oppression (e.g., illegal detention, trial without counsel, brutality, land seizure).
  • IJM's focus is four-part:  (1)Victim relief; (2) Perpetrator accountability; (3) Victim aftercare; and (4) Structural transformation.
  • IJM is a faith-based, Christian organization but it does not engage in proselytizing activities.  
  • IJM is a highly effective, highly rated charity; I've done the research you don't have to!

About the Cookies:

(5) Soft Almond Sugar Cookies with "Sprinkles" Cream Cheese Frosting.



Each box will include 3-4 of each type, other than the sugar cookies of which there are just two.  Thus each box includes a total of about 15 cookies.  Within the box, each type of cookie is kept in its own bag until you choose to arrange them for service, to avoid flavor transfer.

To secure a box, I ask for a $30 minimum donation.  For anything $50+, I will deliver to your porch if you're in Arlington!

Thank you!  Even if you can't take a box, please help me reach this year's goal of raising $500!

Think about it:

We can help innocent children who are being raped every day.

How can we not help them?
