I love cookies. I remember every time we had company when I was little, my mom would buy Pepperidge Farm Cookies – usually Milanos. For company she said. But I always caught her sneaking one before company came, and if I was lucky I got to sneak one too. Is it any wonder that I loved having company?
Even today the sight of a bag of Milano cookies means something special to me. Like setting out “the good china” for a guest. Like a shared treat with my mom. Like a special occasion during an everyday moment.
This month, for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Milano Cookies are getting a makeover, as you can see. And more than that, Pepperidge Farm is hosting a month-long iniative to raise money in support of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. And you can help!
When you click over to Facebook and share your Milano Moment, as I did above, Pepperidge Farm will donate $.50 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Up to $50,000!
Breast cancer runs in my family. My Grandma Joyce died from it when I was a little girl. I remember visiting her at the hospital. I remember seeing her during her struggle once before she had her wig in place. My beautiful grandmother who didn’t look like her normal, dignified and gorgeous self. Later we found out that my biological grandmother also died of breast cancer – a mere 6 months after the birth and adoption of my mom. So yes, I have been touched by this disease – as have most of you, I’m sure.
If we can unite, and each do our small part, we can make a bigdifference.
I am closing comments because I want you all to go and share a Milano Moment and together we can raise a significant amount for Susan G. Komen for the Cure!
I was made aware of this campaign through the One2One Network and am grateful they gave me the chance to share my moment.
