Cookies for Sailors

The Inspire Channel loves creative projects that surprise and encourage people. So when Rachel posted a Cookie Baking Challenge on social media, we were all in.

“For every $50 donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the kiddos and I will make a batch of cookies for the hard-working sailors of the USS West Virginia,” she wrote.

The Inspire Channel sponsored several batches, including oatmeal raisin and cranberry white chocolate chip.

Four-year-old James and two-year-old Daniel helped their mom by stirring in the ingredients and taste-testing the final products, all in honor of their Navy family.
