Mason Jar Cookie Company’s relationship with the Mario Batali Foundation began earlier this year when the Foundation’s team reached out for support for their annual Honors Dinner in October. This year they honored Gretchen Witt, co-founder of Cookies for Kids’Cancer, and felt that our Jars would be a perfect take home gift for all guests attending. Working closely with Mario and his team, we designed a special Limited Edition Triple Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix to donate to the event.
The cookies were a huge hit, and because of the high demand, we began working on another collaboration, one that would allow us to keep giving back and raising money to support the Foundation’s mission.
This holiday season, we’ve collaborated with The Mario Batali Foundation to help support and empower children in our community. Our collaboration with the Foundation features Mario’s signature Triple Chocolate Chip Mason Jar Cookie blend. For each jar sold, we will donate 25% or $4.50 per jar of the proceeds to the Mario Batali Foundation.
The Mario Batali Foundation’s mission aims to feed, protect, educate, and empower children, encouraging them to dream big while providing them with the necessary tools to become to pioneer change in today’s society. Additionally, the organization supports educational opportunities, nutrition education and funding for pediatric disease research. These programs enable children and their families to create healthy, sustainable lifestyles because health and education shouldn’t be a privilege but a right for all kids.
Why we’ve collaborated: Here at Mason Jar Cookie Company, we believe that cookies should be fun, but we also believe in giving back to our communities. From the start, our mission made giving back part of its recipe. Our Jars are hand packed by disabled US military veterans and our sales help provide meaningful work opportunities and health benefits for those who are disabled as a result of serving our country.
We are proud to support that cause, and this one. Our ideals paired with The Mario Batali Foundation’s mission to help educate and empower kids provided a natural segue in working together.
