you never know who you might be helping...
I had a great experience this weekend. I made a loaf of pumpkin bread for the holiday faire bake sale at my daughter's school. I made a little tag that said "no nuts". I considered whether or not to do that, since I don't know of very many families from our school with nut allergies. I decided to do it anyway so that others might notice and do the same in the future. I also thought that some people may not like nuts. (Or, some people may really like nuts and wouldn't want to buy my bread!) Anyway, while I was there I saw a mom I've known for years who has a pa son. (Our kids went to preschool together.) Her kids do not go to our school, now, but she stopped by the faire any way. I told her I had made a pumpkin bread. She came up to me later and said "is that your bread that has the tag that says 'no nuts'?" I told her it was and she bought it! I was so happy that a pa family was able to purchase the bread I made. I'm sure they don't often get to buy something from a bake sale. I will never hesitate again to label my donations. Next time I may even put "safe for nut allergies" in small writing. Just wanted to share some good news! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] Miriam
