School Ties + Cookies for Caring


School Ties creates global educational experiences for students working together to raise funds for school supplies in developing countries.

At my son's school, here in Houston, a group of second graders have been communicating with kids in Nairobi, Africa. The kids were sent an abundant amount of string and they produced the most beautiful friendship bracelets. I have partnered with School Ties to raise money to send these kiddos to school.  Every day this week, we will be auctioning each bracelet along with a set of Whip It Good Cookies. It only costs $30 to send a child to school in Africa for a year so let's send as many kiddos as we can!!

Bidding starts at $30. Bidding will close each day at 9:00pm (central time). The winning bid will be sent a Paypal invoice. Shipping will included or personal delivery for local winners (Houston area). Please comment on each day's Facebook post with your bid and Paypal email address. Thank you so much for your willingness to help!

On Monday, we auctioned off a bracelet and the set of Africa cookies that I made.


 On Tuesday, the lucky winner bid on a bracelet and these floral cookies.


Today we are auctioning off this bracelet made by Teddy.  Teddy is a second grader living in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya. His parents died, which left him an orphan. He has a huge smile and a great desire to learn. His favorite food is beans and he can sing the hokey poky like no one's business. Teddy wants to be a teacher when he grows up. He wants to go to school, but has difficulty paying the cost of school supplies. He has made this bracelet and sent it with a wish that he can go to school. By making a bid on Cookies for Caring you can help send Teddy to school. Every child deserves an education, including Teddy!

  
We will be chatting with these kiddos again on May 13th and would love to be able to tell them that we have sold all of the bracelets they made.  Thanks for your support!!!  XOXO
