On September 27, a colleague and I had the opportunity to represent Fairytale Brownies at the Kaboom! Playground build at Maryvale Preparatory Academy in Phoenix, AZ. Over 250 volunteers came together to build a playground for the elementary school children, all in less than 8 hours!
Co-founders of Fairytale Brownies Eileen Spitalny and David Kravetz met on their kindergarten playground and know the importance of play in children's lives. Since partnering with Kaboom!
in 2001, Fairytale Brownies and it's customers have partnered to donate over $100,000 to the organization, and Fairytale Brownies has donated thousands of gourmet brownies, cookies and bars to support Kaboom's goal of building a safe place within walking distance of every child in America.
You can help reach that goal when you purchase Belgian Chocolate Brownies from Fairytale Brownies. Visit brownies.com
, shop for your gourmet brownie gifts, and then add your donation for Kaboom! at checkout. At the end of the year, we will match every dollar our customer donate, up to $5,000.
Having a safe place to play is important for every child, so give the gift of play today!
