Cookie Bake Sale!

November 21, 2018

Hello! We are happy to update y'all on our Cookie Bake Sale and recent fundraising achievements! Last week we baked over 300 Mesquite Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies and held a bake sale in front of ETC. The mesquite flour in our cookie batter was produced and milled from our community in Suchilquitongo, Mexico! Mesquite has a unique flavor that resembles an earthy and sweet blend that is further enhanced when combined with oats and chocolate chips. We hoped you enjoyed the cookies as much as we enjoyed baking and explaining our project! We were able to raise over $600 from our bake sale!! Thank you for your donations and support!! 

 

We are currently at 63% of our fundraising goal (almost $10,000!!!). None of this is possible with out you all. We are truly thankful for you, our donors and supporters, as we enter into this Thanksgiving Holiday! Continue to share with your friends and family about our project and goal. Stay updated on FacebookInstagram and our Website

 

Aside from fundraising, we have been finalizing our design and materials for our Polyhouse Solar Dryer! We are looking into current designs and altering them to fit our needs to enhance the drying process for our community. To learn more about our project updates visit our site

 

Thank you again for your help! Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!

 

Sincerely, 

Team Mexico 19
