#12DaysOfCaritas by La Befana & Friends
La Befana needs your help! Join her on a mission to transform the world one magic moment (and cookie) at a time. And while you're at it, teach your children that when times are tough, small acts done with CRAZY LOVE (aka "caritas") can make a big difference!
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 connection to people who could use a little hope.
And let's face it, this year we all could use some.
By participating in La Befana’s #12DaysofCaritas challenge your child can feel like a superhero as they help a one toothed puppet turn magic moments into a movement!
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 believes that no matter one's circumstances, everyone deserves a reminder of the sweetness of life.
Any funds over our goal that are raised will go directly to NYC Relief so they can continue the work they do connecting those who are hurting and homeless on the streets of NYC with the resources they need to survive and the hope they need to try.
Sign your child up or create a team with your family, friends, school or place of worship to complete your #12DaysOfCaritas challenge.
La Befana will send you a video each day from her Magic Kitchen with nuggets of her kitchen table wisdom and the daily acts of caritas -- simple acts that involve the whole family, such as calling a grandparent and asking them to share a story from their life. Or, delivering something sweet to someone in need of a smile.
#12DaysOfCaritas 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!
