Everyday I read about more riots over food shortages. I chew my nails watching depressing Washington Post exposés on our wasteful farm subsidies programs.
I remind myself that a simple cookie can be just that- a simple cookie, not a slippery slope towards obesity and diabetes doom.
Times of good food have gotten dark lately.
The more I think on it, the more troubles and grim future lessons I see. I need help bolstering my good thoughts and hope towards global food reform.
Where can cookies fit into this? Not just any cookies, but purchased long distance cookies for others?
David Horvitz is working through his website For You, to offer virtual premeditated acts of good and intention in exchange for payment. With my $30 I am sending a wish of virtual happiness to be distilled into in-hand goodness to a stranger in Los Angeles. Horvitz just wrote to me declaring May 3rd as free cookie day. He is hoping to match my contribution with that of others to have a free cookie give away spree in Los Angeles.
Of course you can complete this act yourself and give away cookies in a town near you. I’m hoping to use this experience to bolster myself into giving away cookies on May 3rd also.
Whether people will readily accept free cookies is another topic for discussion…
