Ain't No Party, Like a Blue Bell Party!

For the first time in months this afternoon, I opened my freezer and came to a cold realization... I have no Blue Bell in my freezer! I usually have at least half a pint waiting for me at any given time, but today is different and I must admit it makes me a little sad but its also inspired an idea.

There are no doubt many kids all around DFW who don't have the privilege of having a scoop of their favorite ice cream for dessert or a cool treat on a hot day. Some of my fondest memories from childhood include running to the ice cream truck with my friends or getting a sundae at the local ice cream shop with my family. It might sound silly, but ice cream is a simple pleasure that I take for granted. So I have a proposal to make: I will set aside $3 (the average cost of a pint) for every review that I post until August 22 to help raise money for a back to school Blue Bell ice cream party for an underprivileged school here in Dallas. So far I've written 18 reviews so that's $54 in the fund...not a bad start!

Honestly can you think of a better way to kick off the school year than with a surprise ice cream party? I can't!

If anyone would like to get involved please let me know by posting a comment. If you have ideas on how I can organize this event, a school who is deserving, or you want to volunteer your time or resources...let me know!


  1. Hello my Blue Bell enthusiast! Pokey O's may be able to help you with this great idea! Call Kathy at the store 214.987.1200. Have a great day!

  2. Hey Lydia- wanted to let you know that my LifeGroup sponsors Christie Elementary in Plano. We have done lots of renovations on the school (landscaping, painting, adding word lettering inside, etc) as well as little projects for the teachers. We already have contact liasons/etc. in place if you are interested. But, by now, you may already have found another deserving school.
