Today, Painted Owl owner Suzanne McLaughlin shares her vision as well as why she decided to support Cookies for Kids’ Cancer in the month of June. Thank you, Suzanne! Everyone at Cookies is looking forward to working with Painted Owl again soon!
My daughter Madeline and her dad were making cinnamon rolls one sunny winter morning. While spreading the butter and sugar mixture on top of an enormous slab of dough, Maddi proclaimed as she rolled her eyes and licked her lips, “It’s all about the sugar!” What a great idea for kids apparel we thought–celebrating all the things that make their world go ’round. And yes, sugar is one of them.
While planning and creating Painted Owl I envisioned a company with a true purpose. There was never a question that I would give back somehow. Since Painted Owl is a company inspired by our children it was only obvious to give back to children. We feature a different children’s charity each month hoping to increase awareness for these organizations. 3% of our profits for that month are donated to that featured charity. Our June featured children’s charity is Cookies for Kids’ Cancer.
I was specifically looking for a children’s charity that focused on pediatric cancer. I was really drawn to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer because of the bake sale theme to raise money. The dedication that Liam’s parents had to their son Liam and other children with cancer everywhere was amazing. I LOVE that Cookies for Kids’ Cancer encourages kids to help raise money while educating them about the importance of funding pediatric cancer research.
