2017 AWARD RECIPIENT

"As a little five year old, I believed I could help repair the world, and through Cookies for Charity I proved that I could."

Cookies for Charity is a large-scale lemonade and cookie stand where 100% of the profits go to a local non-profit therapeutic horseback riding center in Lake Forest, Illinois called the Equestrian Connection. In eleven years, over $130,000 have been raised, with sponsorship from twenty-one organizations. Cookies for Charity carves out a pathway for those who want to help repair the world but have no idea where to start, while aiding in destigmatizing children with special needs.
