A Sweet Tooth and a Soft Heart: Sponsor Spotlight

Friday, August 18th, 2017 by micayla

psssst—if you’re a sucker for free desserts and changing the world, keep reading!

What do cupcakes and ice cream have to do with helping orphans and widows in Uganda?

 

The Dessert Stand

What’s better than art that’s made out of sugar and used to help others? Yeah, we couldn’t think of anything either, until we started talking about the fact that they don’t just have a bakery—get this: they also have a mobile dessert food truck.

And the sweet facts don’t stop piling up there! The Dessert Stand supports ROWAN monthly and is generously donating 100 cupcakes for the upcoming event with Pastor Paul on September 9th.

It seems that the only thing more beautiful than the cupcakes and desserts they create is the fact that they do this all with generous hearts and seek out ways to improve the lives of others. That’s one of many reasons we are proud to call them our partners! If you have a chance, go check ’em out. Eat some sugar art (sugart?) and help change the world!

Little Man Ice Cream

Have you ever walked past a 28-foot tall milk can in Denver’s Highlands? The one where people arrive in droves and depart with satisfied smiles and mouthwatering ice cream in hand? That’s another one of our business partners!

Little Man “was built on a belief: a belief that business exists to make a difference. Since the day we opened for business, we have made giving back a part of who we are.”

Here’s how they have faithfully supported our orphans and widows:

“Since most of ROWANS adult beneficiaries are HIV+ themselves, it is critical that they receive proper nutrition to supplement their medication. Since 2014, [we have] supported a Saturday food program at their community center aimed at increasing their health and well-being. [It] includes two meals on Saturdays for 130 children at the center, as well as the provision of bags of food for 100 families to take home for the rest of the week.”

fellow sugar addicts, here comes the part where we let you in on Part Two of free dessert!

On top of all of their past and current contributions, Little Man has agreed to — drumroll, please! — let us use their space for free for the event with Pastor Paul as well as give us FREE ICE CREAM!

We invite you to join us as we support these incredible businesses that are full of selfless, passionate people. They inspire us, as they have proved time and time again that you can turn almost ANYTHING — any passion, time, resource, or talent — into an avenue for helping others.

Thank you to The Dessert Stand and Little Man Ice Cream for dreaming big with us and for never settling for dreams that stay as just dreams.
