Phoenix, Arizona (PRWEB) February 11, 2013
Fairytale Brownies recently donated $5,000 to the national nonprofit KaBOOM! as part of its commitment to save play in America.
Co-founders Eileen Spitalny and David Kravetz believe that play is an important part of a child’s physical and mental growth. “Unstructured play allows children to develop creativity, dexterity and emotional strength,” Spitalny said. “David and I met on the kindergarten playground.”
For the past couple of years, the gourmet brownie company has challenged its customers to help save play by adding $1 or more to their online gift orders at checkout at http://www.brownies.com. Fairytale Brownies matches every customer dollar donated up to $5,000.
Since 2001, Fairytale Brownies and its customers have contributed more than $100,000, along with donations of brownies, cookies and time, to support KaBOOM!’s efforts.
KaBOOM!’s community-build model is simple and makes a lasting difference by bringing a diverse group of volunteers together with the goal of building and completing a playground in one day. Fairytale team members have volunteered at a number of playground builds in Arizona and around the country. In 2011, Fairytale funded and built a playground in Tempe, Ariz., for the 200-plus students at Children First Academy, a charter school for the homeless and disadvantaged.
FAIRYTALE BROWNIES has been baking brownies since 1992. Every batch is made by hand using a secret family recipe. The brownies, cookies and bars are all natural, baked with the finest ingredients such as imported Belgian dark chocolate, farm fresh eggs, pure creamery butter, and dark brown sugar. Each brownie, cookie and bar is individually wrapped and certified kosher dairy.
