Cookies don’t have a lot to do with Pilates, but these big cookies reflect my big heart! 😉
As many of already know, I am involved with Raja Syria – we are a group committed to sponsoring and supporting a family of seven Syrian refugees, who will be hopefully be arriving in Toronto before the years end!
As part of our fund-raising efforts, we’re thrilled to be working with Bonnie Gordon College of Confectionary Arts on the Bonnie Gordon Canada Cares Bake Sale!
In two weeks, on November 13 and 14, hundreds of people across the GTA will tuck into thousands of fresh-baked cookies, all delivered straight to their offices, homes and apartments — and all for a very good cause. All proceeds will help support a family of seven Syrian refugees as they settle in Toronto. The talented staff and student volunteers of Bonnie Gordon College will turn 1 litre of vanilla extract, 540 eggs, 60 kilograms of flour and thousands of chocolate chips into 4,500 cookies in seven flavours—including S’mores, Red Velvet, and Ginger Molasses—which can be ordered online until Nov. 6. In addition to staff and students, Bonnie Gordon College has donated its full kitchen facilities for cookie production. “It is our responsibility to help others,” College founder Bonnie Gordon said. “Baking is what we do best, so a bake sale makes perfect sense.”
One hundred percent of the proceeds from the Bonnie Gordon Canada Cares Bake Sale will go towards Raja Syria. Raja means “hope” in Arabic. Our group is teamed with Lifeline Syria, which plans to bring 1,000 Syrian refugees to the GTA over the next two years, and Mennonite Central Committee, which has been helping private sponsorship groups resettle refugees in Canada for decades.
We hope that you’ll order some cookies! Orders of ten or more will be delivered free of charge in the GTA. Get together with your coworkers or friends or favourite Facebook group and place an order. They also freeze really well and make great stocking stuffers, client gifts or christmas presents.
