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!
