John Schiavo, president and CEO of Otis Spunkmeyer, Inc., announced contributions of $75,000 to Make-A-Wish Foundation, the world’s largest wish-granting organization benefiting children with life-threatening medical conditions. Otis Spunkmeyer made the donation in conjunction with its 2009 “Wish Cookie” promotion that ran April 15-June 15, 2009. Invited for a day of inspiration and fun at Otis Spunkmeyer, Inc. World Headquarters, a group of wish kids partnered with Otis Spunkmeyer “chefs” in the RandD lab to create their very own flavors of cookie dough. Nothing was off-limits as the kids mixed and matched their favorite cookie dough bases and ingredients to produce a series of flavors that were as unique as the “cookie experts” themselves. Nine-year-old Karen and “chef” JD started with chocolate dough and mixed in turquoise candy-coated chocolates (Karen’s favorite color) and classic marshmallows-resulting in the limited-edition Karen’s ChocKLeT Heaven. “Karen brought a little bit of heaven to my life as she reminded me that, no matter our age or circumstances, life is about cultivating relationships and embracing those around us,” said JD. “Otis Spunkmeyer and the Make-A-Wish Foundation share a commitment to enriching the lives of children and families. We are proud to do our part in helping to grant as many wishes as possible-at the same time sharing our love of fresh-baked cookies,” said Schiavo. “Otis Spunkmeyer’s Cookies for a Cause initiative is about giving back to the communities that have loved and supported Otis Spunkmeyer for more than 30 years. We look forward to continuing our relationship with the Make-A-Wish Foundation and our other valued charity partners.”
