Think Pink! Celebrating 8 Years of Gourmet Cookie Gifts by Donating 10% to Breast Cancer

THINK PINK!

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

OCTOBER = Heidi’s Heavenly Cookies’ 8th Yr Anniversary + National Cookie Month + National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Heidi’s Heavenly Cookies was born in October of 2002, which also happens to be the same month as National Cookie Month, and National Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Why not combine them? That’s just what we’ve decided to do…

Our customers and friends have always buoyed us up! We’d like to extend the favor. In honor of all three events coming up in October, we’ve decided to celebrate 8 delightful—and sinfully delicious—years of gourmet cookie baking adventures by donating 10% of all proceeds from our Heavenly Selects gourmet cookie orders to the Young Survival Coalition (YSC) for the entire month of October!

Has Breast Cancer affected you, your family or friends’ lives? Help us combat Breast Cancer by sending a Heavenly Selects chocolate cookie basket as an anniversary gift, get well soon gift, thank you gift, happy birthday gift, corporate gift or just to say “I’m thinking about you!” and 10% of proceeds will go to Breast Cancer Awareness and Research.

THE CHARITY

The Young Survival Coalition (YSC) was founded in 1998 by three women diagnosed with breast cancer under the age of 35 that lacked the necessary information pertinent to young women diagnosed with the disease. In an attempt to educate women, specifically young women under the age of 40, they created YSC. Today its influence reaches over 200,000 people every year.
