It began over coffee and ice cream and whoopie pies as all great ideas should. Dawn of One Girl Cookies and I were discussing ways in which we could combine our respective deliciousness into something amazing. Our conversation took a turn from collaborating on desserts to commiserating as business owners, to being moms and raising little kids, to working with our spouses. Then it occurred to us that we were probably not alone on any one of these topics and wouldn’t it be great to create a community whereby we gave and received support from one another. And this was the moment we decided to invite others into our coffee klatch to gather, discuss, exchange ideas- creatively, operationally, collaboratively and of course, sweetly.
We are grateful to have found community with each other and hope to spread this collective sentiment in actions that encourage cooperation, support and empowerment. And we encourage folks to visit and shop at our sister companies always but especially during the month of March, Women’s History and empowerment month. To honor International Women’s Day, March 8th, we will be donating a portion of our profits to Girl Rising: a global organization that seeks to uplift and empower girls through education.
