A $20 Cookie for Katrina Victims
Here is how I just paid $20 for a chocolate chip cookie:
Sara Ford works here at Microsoft
She grew up in Waveland, MS which was hit by hurricane Katrina
Her parents house was flooded and the entire community needs help
MSNBC contacted her about it
Sara is now collecting clothing and donations in one of our cafeterias from fellow Microsoft employees (like me), which she and her husband will deliver next week to Waveland.
That’s where I bought a cookie for $20. Sara and her friends tried to have me take more than one cookie, but I resisted the urge so that others could donate and get a cookie too.
Ahh, the power of blogs: I had never met Sara before today. I had never heard of Waveland, MS before this. I do have a weak spot for chocolate chip cookies though. [:)]
