This past Saturday, November 10th a small group of Fairytale Brownies Team Members participated in a KaBOOM! playground build benefitting the De Colores family shelter in Phoenix, AZ. KaBOOM! is a national non-profit that envisions a playground within walking distance of every child in America and Fairytale Brownies has been partnering with them beginning in 2001. Since that time Fairytale Brownies and our fundraising partners have donated more than $100,000, along with brownies, cookies and time.
Our Fairytale Team Members are not only dedicated to providing the best fudgy chocolate brownies and gourmet cookies, they are also deeply committed to helping our community. Each time that KaBOOM! conducts a playground build in the Phoenix area, we try and send volunteers to assist in the effort. For this build we sent a team of six hardworking volunteers to build a playground in only six hours!
It's always hard work but also a lot of fun to be involved in a playground build. Watching the teamwork of over 200 volunteers along with the excitement of the children is so memorable. Just knowing that these kids will have a safe place to explore the gift of play is really inspirational. And remember, when you order brownies there is an opportunity during checkout to make a small donation to support KaBOOM's efforts!
