2021 Cookie Ministry
Join La Befana, Italy's legendary Christmas witch, for 12 Days of "crazy love" (aka caritas). From December 25- January 5, we join together (but apart) to show our children that when times are tough, small acts done with CRAZY LOVE can make a big difference!
Each day you will receive a video from La Befana in her Magic Kitchen with a nugget of her kitchen table wisdom and the daily act of Crazy Love -- simple acts done with the whole heart that involve the whole family. (i.e. calling a grandparent and asking them to share a story from their life. Or, delivering something sweet to someone in need of a smile.)
And at the end of the 12 Days we will together in celebration of all the magic we've created together. (See below.)
This season, La Befana has teamed up with Dilena's Dolcini—a small sister-owned cookie company in East Harlem—and NYC Relief—an organization that provides resources and necessities to those who are hurting and homeless—to raise $10,000 and deliver 10,000 cookies and moments of joy and connection to people who could use a little hope.
And let's face it, this year we all could use some. So.....
You can join the challenge for free, donate what feels right to you, or you can create your very own fundraising page to send to friends and family to help La Befana reach her goal of sharing 10,000 cookies with 10,000 people who need them.
Individuals or families that raise $108 or more will be sent their own box of La Befana's Magic Star Cookies to eat or share just like La Befana does.
For every dollar your family raises, La Befana, in partnership with NYC Relief, will personally deliver a cookie to someone in need of a smile because La Befana & Friends believes that no matter one's circumstances, everyone deserves a reminder of the sweetness of life.
#12DaysOfCrazyLove is not your ordinary fundraiser because these are not ordinary times. It's an opportunity to join our hearts with family and friends near and far and teach our kids that peace begins in the heart and the home and extends into the world at large
Help La Befana light up her corner of the world while you light up yours. And when enough of us join in we'll be well on our way to creating the brighter world we all want to live in.
The 12 Days of Caritas challenge culminates on January 5th 2021--Epiphany Eve with a grand celebration in La Befana's Magic Kitchen.
Join us for a virtual Star-Studded Bake-Along on “THE ZOOM!” and celebrate all the goodness we have spread this season!
