Updates from Kindness Cookies

Dear Friends,

Hello. Seems like we just chatted. But as we said in our last letter, we'd keep you updated and we're grateful for this opportunity to contact you again.

The Covid-19 landscape continues to change in Ontario, Canada and the world. These are uncertain times ~ what was seen as acceptable yesterday or last week, might not be now. It's hard to keep up with the rapid pace of decision-making at all levels of government.

How are you doing? How are you really doing?

There is no simple answer, we know. We all have our own feelings, emotions, fears and worries. Each of our personal and professional situations is unique. But even as we're all different in so many ways, we're the same - each of us is impacted by the unpredictability of Covid-19. 

We've been following updates from all 3 levels of government on a regular basis. Like you, we're concerned about the real-time and future impacts of the coronavirus on our families and loved ones, our community, and our business. After listening to and following the information, recommendations and changing legislation before us, we're here to tell you that we're taking a break and not selling Kindness Cookies through our online store at this time.

This decision was both easy and difficult. Easy - because it's the right thing to do. We've all been asked to stay home. Our business model can operate with very little contact with others, but at this point all contact should be minimized for only essential needs. 

One might argue that cookies - certainly Kindness Cookies - are essential during these troubled times. And we believe that KINDNESS is essential now, more than ever before. That's why it was a difficult decision to make. We know that when you buy our cookies, you're doing your part to bring kindness to others. 

But we're confident that you'll find different ways to share kindness. We know you're a natural member of the Kindness Club; you don't just love our cookies, you also understand our bigger purpose - sharing acts of kindness to bring joy to others. 

Thank you for being part of the Kindness Club. We appreciate your friendship and your business. That's why it's important we stay connected.

Please go to our website  https://kindnesscookies.ca/pages/kindness-counts and give us some details about the Kindness Ambassadors you know - we'll send them a personalized certificate that celebrates their good deeds.

We'll continue to post resources that we hope are helpful. We'll share ideas and inspirations through virtual methods. And if you have good resources to share please post them and tag us. Let's share music, laughter, art, meditation, exercise, books... whatever we need to make our time at home less stressful.

We know the world is rapidly changing. We don't know what will happen when we return to 'normal'. But we anticipate a NEW normal - a kinder, gentler, society with people who are more patient, more compassionate, more forgiving, and more loving. And we'll be ready at that time to bake cookies in order to make the world a kinder place, one cookie at a time. 

Keep well, keep connected, be kind.

Kind regards,
