my sister seriously makes the best s'mores rice krispie treats. and she's making them to help raise funds for operation SurfinBird.
“In an effort to help them reach [OperationSurfinBird’s] goal, I am taking orders for my homemade S'mores Rice Krispie treats. That’s right, S'mores Rice Krispie Treats! Pure Hershey’s milk chocolate and charred marshmallows sandwiched by a double layer of Rice Krispies, Cocoa Krispies & Golden Grahams. I’m asking for a minimum donation of $20 per dozen. With the holidays almost upon us, these would be the perfect treat to take to Thanksgiving dinner or to a holiday party. 100% of the proceeds go to Operation SurfinBird towards their goal of feeding the families of Rockaway Beach - a great a way to give this holiday season.
How to Order:
At this time, I am only taking orders per the dozen. Since Operation SurfinBird is on a tight schedule, all orders need to be placed with me by Tuesday, November 20th. Most orders can be completed within 24 hours. The good news is that I am taking advanced orders for the holiday season as long as donations are made by Tuesday. So if you want them delivered at a later time, you can preorder them, make your donation by Tuesday and get the goods when you need them.
I can either take cash and make the donation for you or you can make the donation yourself at https://www.wepay.com/donations/operation-surfin-bird. Upon completion of your donation, We Pay will send you an emailed confirmation of your payment. To retrieve your treats, just show me your emailed confirmation of donation.
Orders can be picked up at my house near the Grove (Beverly/Fairfax) or delivered locally in the Los Angeles area.
Please take a minute to read about Operation SurfinBird at www.OperationSurfinBird.com and help them reach their goal by donating, ordering treats, or by shopping online at www.TenOver6.com. Also if you have any resources that can help facilitate their cause please have them contact Tamara or Eli at firstname.lastname@example.org. Every little bit helps. Spread the word.
NY friends (or LA friends), if you know peeps in LA with a major sweet tooth, please forward this along.

Operation SurfinBird Thanks You for your Consideration. Find out more about them below:
The Rockaways have been devastated by hurricane Sandy. Many are without homes, those that have homes still have no power, and many have lost everything. As we now approach winter the damage to the Rockaways is still tremendous, the efforts to rebuild are becoming more challenging, and it will be a long slow process of recovery for this community.
Operation SurfinBird is made up of New Yorkers, surfers, people that visit Rockaway, joined with people from all over the world that still care. We want to bring a nice community Thanksgiving meal to the Rockaways to show our support, show that we have not forgotten them, raise awareness that their needs are long-‐lasting, and that the support of the world community will be there for them until the end. We hope to provide a Thanksgiving feast for at least 500 people living in the Rockaways whilst generating support and awareness for the long recovery road ahead. Any proceeds raised beyond what we need for Operation SurfinBird will go directly into rebuilding the community through free volunteer based construction, and home rehabilitation.
- Help spread the word. We have started a Facebook site for people to connect with us, communicate how they would like to help, and share our mission with viral media throughout the internet. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Operation‐Surfinbird/338418792923837
