That time Karen got invited to the Superbowl (sorta)

I have something really exciting to share with you. It’s something I’ve been working on for the past 11 months, and I am still in a state of disbelief that it’s actually happening. On November 24th Bisousweet is partnering with the New England Patriots (9-0, all the way baby!!!!) in the Patriot’s annual tradition of giving out Thanksgiving Dinner Baskets to 240 families throughout Massachusetts.

I found out about the Patriot’s Charitable Foundation and the Thanksgiving Dinner Baskets last year, right after Thanksgiving. As I read the article, I knew I wanted to participate.  I reached out a year ago, continued to reach out throughout the year, and finally heard at the beginning of November that the Bisousweet donation was a go. We were going to our version of the Superbowl, with our favorite team.

Baking, packaging, tying ribbons…

We’re donating chocolate tea breads and pumpkin doughnut muffins to help make the holiday a little bit sweeter for 240 families in need.

To the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation: Thank you for all that you do for your very large, extended community. You set the standard for excellence both on & off the field.

To Robert Kraft: I would love nothing more than to give you a hug and a big box of some really good rugelach. I’ve been talking about this since, well, 2009. If you happen to run into an awkward shy person hiding a pink box behind her back, just ignore her but take the box. Trust me.  You want that box.

To the Morgan Memorial Goodwill Industries of Boston: What you do for this community is truly amazing. Thank you for allowing me to join you.

To the Bisousweet Team: Thanks everyone for rallying to make this happen!

You know that friend who has it all together? Yeah. That’s not me. What I can offer you instead are my experiences, insights, and passions. Pithy observations about making cookies. Wry commentary on running a business. Loving (if slightly sarcastic) parenting advice. And if that doesn’t interest you, I have dogs. Cute ones.
