BIRTHDAY SURPRISE

What are three things that everyone loves on their birthdays? Cookies, eating without regrets, and being around friends! You agree? Well so do the people at Bonny Neiman, which is why they contributed to the Cookies 4 Kids fundraiser by selling cookies at their store and donating 15% of the sales!

Deciding that they wanted to contribute to the fundraiser just a few days before hand, they were happy to see the outcome and support they had from family and friends. The amount of people that freed their schedules to help contribute to this cause was truly remarkable.
