Cookie Munchers Trust to Raise $1 Million

Cookie Munchers Charitable Trust to Raise $1 Million

Cookie Munchers are going to take over New Zealand in a bid to fundraise $1 million this summer for the Cookie Munchers Charitable Trust.

The Trust is raising money by selling Cookie Muncher soft toys (pictured) for only $25 and 100 per cent of the profits go to the Trust. The Cookie Muncher soft toys can be purchased from Christmas Cookies sellers who are currently doing the rounds of local businesses, or online at or via 0800 COOKIE (0800 266543).

Attached is some information on the Cookie Munchers Charitable Trust, which has been set up by the founders of Cookie Time to make a difference in the lives of young New Zealanders. The charity does this by making available innovative learning programmes for children who would not otherwise be able to participate. This particular drive is to try and help address the issue of learning disabilities, in particular dyslexia.
