Isabella's Cookie Company Teams Up With Milk + Bookies(TM) to Inspire a Lifetime of Learning
Gourmet bakery's partnership with literacy non-profit makes for the perfect recipe.
- Los Angeles-Long Beach, CA (1888PressRelease) September 24, 2011 - Just in time for National Literacy Month, Los Angeles-based bakery, Isabella's Cookie Company, proudly announces its partnership with literacy non-profit organization Milk + Bookies™. Working with Milk + Bookies™, the organization that inspires children to give back using books as currency, Isabella's Cookies has created a new cookie to help raise money for the nonprofit. The goal of the partnership is to raise awareness, donate a portion of the proceeds to a relevant cause, and inspire a lifetime of learning for children in need.
With "Read, Give, Grow!" as its motto, Milk + Bookies™ encourages giving through events where children select, purchase and inscribe books that are then given to children who do not have books of their own. Because one of Isabella's Cookies' main initiatives is to make a difference in the community, this partnership with Milk + Bookies™ really is the perfect recipe.
"Milk + Bookies works tirelessly to create experiences for children to get inspired and excited about giving and reading - what better incentive than the yummy and amazing Isabella's cookies?" said Milk + Bookies founder, Meredith Alexander. "We are so grateful to Isabella's Cookie Company for their incredible generosity; these proceeds will allow our organization to reach more children in more cities. Fairy tales and chocolate chip cookies? Now our program can be even more delicious."
As part of Isabella's Cookie Company's effort to raise funds and awareness for Milk + Bookies™, the company has created an extraordinary chocolate chip cookie for the non-profit. Soon to be available in select retail stores, www.isabellascookies.com, and www.milkandbookies.org, a portion of every chocolate chip cookie sale will go directly to Milk + Bookies™.
"The first cookie I have ever perfected was the chocolate chip," says Jennifer Palmer, founder of Isabella's Cookie Company. "I've always known that I wanted to use the recipe for good, and I couldn't imagine a more wonderful cause to support than Milk + Bookies™."
Inspiring children to read, give and grow with one cookie at a time, the partnership between Isabella's Cookie Company and Milk + Bookies™ makes for one sweet pairing.

ABOUT MILK + BOOKIES™:
Milk + Bookies™ is a nationwide charitable organization that inspires children to give back, using books as its currency.

Milk + Bookies™ combines two essential and worthwhile efforts: literacy promotion and service learning. While the book donations are imperative to our mission, just as important is instilling the seed of giving into each participant sparking feelings of importance, self-confidence and the desire to give and give again.
