Pay It Forward You Deserve a Cookie

Pay It Forward

pay it forward

Do you know someone who deserve a cookie?

It started with our Pay It Forward mission where we offered an opportunity to nominate someone for a note and one of the best cookies I have ever eaten, Cheryl’s cookies. Some may think that one cookie isn’t much, but what if the one cookie sent from you just makes that person’s day? How about if it makes their week? How about if it causes them to do something nice for someone else? You could create a whole chain of kindness? Then it wouldn’t be just a cookie, it would be the start of something great. You can send your own cookie for just $5 from Cheryl’s cookie.

Pay It Forward




We only have one rule. It’s simple leave a comment below nominating someone who you think deserve a cookie. You can nominate as many people as you want.

By the end of the week, we will pick the best comment and we will send a cookie to the person nominated.

    My Sister deserves a cookie! She is my baby Sister but I admire and look up to her so much. She’s the most patient and kind person I know. She’s always thinking of others and doing random acts of kindness. She has two beautiful kiddos and is so selfless; she rarely does anything for herself! She deserves a dozen cookies! :)

  2. pamela jablonski says

    I would like to nominate my cousin, Linda. Linda is the most cheerful and loving person I know! She lives alone, which is quite an accomplishment due to her intellectual disabilities. Small things like this bring such joy to her heart! She would be so excited to get this in the mail! Nowadays, you don’t get many personal things in the mail anymore! Thanks!

  3. Cheryl Karrels says

    I would like to nominate my wonderful husband. He has been battling cancer for the past 5 1/2 years and is getting worse by the day now. The hidious disease is now taking over his lungs and breathing is even a chore. I go to work each day in fear and he tries to do what he can to stay positive. He is only 43 years old and I feel he is being cheated but he says that he is rich for having had me in his life. Wrong – I am the rich one and want him to know how strong I feel he is and how much more I love him everyday.

    I would like to nominate my friend Pamela Summers. She such a great friend and is always there for me. She took me under her wing and showed me a bunch of things to help me win in sweepstakes. She didn’t know me and actually came looking for me because I had won a prize. That was so awesome!

    My cousin Pam deserves a cookie. She has her hands full as she is a mom of 5.In which she has a special child which he’s a cutie but I know she gets worn out a lot and her husband is having back surgery asap. She’s a beautiful person that I admire she’s dealt with so much and I couldng imagine being in her shoes.

  6. Shannon Stotler says

    A little girl Named McKayla deserves a cookie. She is only 13 years old, honor student and she is also fighting for her life. She has a rare liver disease called PSC. She is currently in Pittsburgh’s Children’s Hospital. She is constantly in severe pain and sick. The doctors are lost cause now it’s attacking other organs. Her pancreas is now inflamed and she has gone anemic! If any one deserves a smile I believe it’s McKayla!

  7. says

    I would LOVE to nominate my daughter’s Teacher. She is in charge of 20 students in grades k-2. She really does a lot for the kids. I can email her anywhere from about 6am-10pm and she gets back to me quickly. She goes above what a teacher needs to do. She is always updating the parents on the students. So I know all the time what is happening in school. She spends time with each child individually. She encourages the students to come up with goals for the year, and then works with them to achieve their goals.

    I would like to nominate my best friend, Michele Norman Cottrill. We’ve known each other for about 25 years. I’m actually very close to her entire family and her kids are like my own. I can’t think of even one time we weren’t there for each other. I would love to do something so spontaneous that it would just give her a shocked smile. She has one daughter who’s 19 but then she has 3 under the age of 10, so she stays pretty busy. I’d like her to just stop and take a minute for herself. I think a cookie out of the blue would do the trick.

  9. Susan Ruggiero Nagy says

    My Best Friend Joanie. I have had to have 10 surgeries. She has always been there for me. She visits me every time I am sick, she takes me out, cares for me, calls me when I am down, we are not sisters by blood but I consider her my sister by love. I don’t know what I would do without her. she always knows how to make me smile and comfort me. She is a wonderful person. She deserves this.

  10. Ellen S says

    I would like to nominate my daughter, Hayley. Hayley will be 18 this month and October is a hard month for her. Her special needs brother died on her birthday so every year she tried to celebrate her special day but also has the memory of losing her brother on the same day. Also, since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month she is constantly reminded that I had breast cancer and she could have lost me too. Through all of this she has perservered. She goes back and volunteers in her brother’s old special needs class because she wants to give something back to these very special kids. She carries a full load of A/P and Dual enrollment classes as well as being the yearbook editor, service club officer, and National Honor Society. It will be really nice if she received a cookie so that she could see how special she is. Yes, she hears it from her parents but it would be really special to know that other people think she is just as special.

  11. Adonna says

    My pal Chilja! she is an amazing woman :-) She is a single mom, works crazy hours because of a job change ( we’re all hoping it’s awesome as we think it will be) she manages the food bank at her church ( they serve over 800 people a week), does the special event menus and everything that entails for her church as well- including the shopping, prepping, serving- all volunteer :-)
    She is remodeling her nearly 100 year old house on her own (in her “spare” time). Takes care of her mom who lives on the other side of town. Is the best friend a girl could ever have- totally supportive, ready to call me out when i’m being an idiot, and has the biggest heart of anyone you’ll ever meet!
    A cookie with a smile? Yeah, she totally deserves that!

  12. Mary Fagans says

    I’m nominating my mama..I’ve gone through so much in the past 5 years and she’s been right there with me. No matter what I’ve asked of her she has never turned me down, not once!! She has seen me at rock bottom, but yet she was always with me picking me up. She has never asked for anything in return, she gives without thinking of herself. So for these reasons and more she deserves a thank you for being you cookie. <3 Luv ya Mama

  13. says

    I nominate Lisa Crawford of ft. Mitchell ky. She is a single mom of an autistic son and she’s gone thru some really hard times lately. Her car broke down and she can only work part time because of home schooling him.

  14. Desiree H says

    I really would like to nominate three people that mean the world to me:
    My husband- He is so loving, not judging, understanding, patient, hard working, and more. Hes a wonderful husband and father. I would love to send him a cookie and brighten his day. He works in a high stress job. :)

    My mom deserves the world. She does everything for everyone else and never gets a break. Shes been having a hard time at work lately and dealing with that. I would love to send her a cookie, she would be really happy.

    My brother never gets surprises…and hes so dedicated to God, and loving towards everyone. He is awesome and a great example for our family. It would brighten his day, too if I could send him a cookie to his work! :)
    Thank you!!

  15. says

    I’d like to nominate my friend, Daisy Sosa – she’s been a great friend to me.. offers up wonderful advice and shares with me great deals she find online :) She’s great to talk to!!

  16. daisy sosa says

    I want to nominate my awesome friend Angel Heaven Lee. She truely is an inspiration to me. Despite her dissabilities, she manages to always make the best out of everything. Always with a great big smile and a greater heart. Thinking of others before herself.,, I love her spirit, nothing is ever impossible. We all could learn great things from her ?

  17. Cheryl says

    I would like to nominate my cousin who is battling ovarian cancer and has been out of work for a year in half. Her daughter just lost her job and had to move back home with 2 small kids and her sister lost her home and had to move in with her with 2 teenage kids. Yet she does complain even with her own pain and chemo she continues to be everyone’s ROCK!!!

  18. Tara says

    I would like to nominate my husband. I recently broke my ankle really bad and he is trying to pick up what I can not do. That means working 12 hrs at work as needed then coming home to pick up the slack. He could really use a pick me up …

  19. says

    I would like to nominate my cousin & friend, Lisa. Talk about a rock and endless beam of support. We were never close with our age difference until I had kids and she’s been there for support since my son was born 3 yrs ago. 2 yrs ago she moved 2 hrs away which in most cases hurts a relationship but ours only got stronger. We chat multiple times a day and support each other online with helping each other coupon etc, but still love seeing her in person to touch base. Love how I can bounce any problem off her & shes never judged, only supported. If you look in the dictionary under Family or even Friend, you will see her picture ;) I would love to send her a smile as a thank you for being such an awe-inspiring woman & to know how much I truly appreciate her.

  20. Ann Akinniyi says

    I would nominate my dad who is still mourning the loss of his wife, my mom. He needs a smile.

  21. says

    i want to nominate my mom she has been there for me through cancer losing her husband (my dad)and today she help her 1 year old puppy that died in her arms

  22. says

    My dad and stepmom deserve a cookie! They are going through a lot of financial trouble right now. Their landlord of 9 years decided to sell the house they have been renting, and they have to move out by the end of this month. I love my dad so much, and my stepmom has always been someone I can turn to when I need to vent or need advice. I think a cookie would at least brighten one day during this stressful time.

  26. Sylvia Ratley says

    I would like to nominate my sister, Helen Ann Rogers. She is a third grade teacher in South Florida and is a single mom. She has a teenaged son that has struggled with drug issues and she has always been there for him, working with him and trying to keep him straight. She also cares for my 94 year old mom and 93 year old stepdad who live a few blocks away. She faithfully attends church through all of this and is always there to help others. She went through serious surgery herself last summer. She is a super teacher and always puts her students first. They are so lucky to have her and I’m lucky to have her for my sister

  27. Rena Hyde says

    My cousin deserves a cookie! She lives in California while most of the family lives in Missouri! Her brother is away at college in Rhode Island and her dad is here in MO working. It is just her and mom out there. Her mom is always working and she is in college so they don’t see each other all that much. I would love to send her a cookie so she knows we all care about her :)

  28. Elizabeth Becky Young says

    i would like to nominate my neighbor and friend Jennifer for a cookie. when i shattered my ankle and was bed-bound for 3 weeks, she came in every day and fed my cats, cleaned the litterbox, made me food, cleaned the house, helped me get cleaned up and generally did everything for me, every day, until i was back on my feet again! she went way above and beyond to help me while i was down!

  29. Penni Long says

    My daughter, Faith, deserves this cookie. She is 21 years old and living her dream, working for a mouse. She is a custodian at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. She helps people all day long. Smiling and making their experience at WDW as magical as possible. Although, being a custodian is not her dream job (tour guide is), she still goes to work and helps others find the Disney Magic. I am so proud of her paying it forward to her guests every single day.

  30. Laura says

    I would like to nominate my husband, we met over the internet and really connected right away. He was there for me for the worst part of my life and has always makes me laugh and smile when I needed it, being so far apart was tough, and for so many reasons I just want to express my love and thanks to him for always being there for me. He deserves a cookie just for always being himself, loving, and for never giving up on anything just because it’s not easy.

  31. Cheryl Chervitz says

    I’d like to send this to my mom and dad. They have helped me out so many times and have always been there for me when I needed them. I can’t believe some of the things I did to them when I was younger, and now that my kids are older, I understand what I did!

  32. Tina Lousberg says

    I would nominate my wonderful daughter. She comes and picks me up from work daily on her lunch hour. I can’t drive since I suffered a brain aneurism 5 years ago. She is the best and I love her dearly!

    I would like to nominate my 9 year old neice Karley. Though life has been so busy and we do not get to see eachother much, She makes my day every day when I am putting my daughter on the bus. She is there waiting for her younger cousin, always looking out for her. She talks about 50 mph and I can never catch all of it by reading her lips through the window, but I always get “I love you auntie Crystal I miss you and have a great day!” She signs the i love you sign all the way down the road until I cant see her anymore. She makes my heart so happy.

  37. wendy b says

    I nominate my niece. She just started a new job and feels like a small fish in a big pond. In addition, there are several….ah hem….challenging personalities that are training her. She has such a good heart and needs some encouragement….and sugar. She needs a cookie.

    Her MOMMA

  39. Becky Grimm says

    My daughter Lorelei deserves a cookie. When she was 5 she hit by a lawnmower. She is now 21 and a single mommy of a 3 year old little boy. July 9th she had a surgery on her foot to scrape bone. Very routine should have been very easy. She was placed in the hospital with a severe infection in the incision and MRSA. Now we are at almost 3 months since her surgery and she is finally almost healed. She has handled all of this as good as can be expected but has been a little depressed. I think a cookie would just brighten her day. Thank you

  40. says

    My daughter deserves a cookie. She’s a senior in college, in another state and I miss her terribly. She has gone through some medical issues last year that has put her behind in her college status but she’s pushing through this semester and doing absolutely wonderful. I am so proud of her and having her receive a happy face cookie in the mail would make her day (and mine).

  41. Karla Robey says

    My daughter Melinda deserves a cookie. She has just completed her mid-term exams for her third year of college. She works hard to maintain her grades while working toward her dream of being a neurologist. A cookie would bring a smile to her face!

  42. Pat says

    I would like to nominate my daughter Nicholle. She is a third grade teacher. She is always going above and beyond for her students. She put in long hours each day.

  43. Diane Murray says

    My sister, Michelle, deserves the cookie. Last week, I was very ill and she single-handedly took care of her family and mine (making sure that both of my children were dropped off and picked up from school, had meals, and also spend the entire day/night in the ER with me! I always knew she would be there for me if I needed her, but she went way above and beyond to keep everything on schedule and everyone taken care of during this difficult week. It would be nice to recognize her for being such a good sister.

  44. says

    I would like to nominate my namesake, my Mom, Mrs. Nancy Jane Cowens!! We’ve shared a house for many years, & she certainly derserves a cookie for putting up with my shenangans all these years! I may be an adult, but don’t always act like one; I’m sick alot due to illness, which can make me very moody, to say the least. My Mom is the most trustworthy person I know, she always supports me & sticks up for me. She is the BEST!

  45. Lisa Medors says

    My husband deserves it. I am sick with various problems and he does everything. He works everyday, half days when I go to dialysis. He comes home and makes dinner, does all the dishes etc. some nights he goes to the laundry mat. He carries tons of clothes to the car and when he’s done brings them in puts them away. He takes me to dialysis, he comes in and makes the coffee for everyone at 5 am. Goes home sleeps until I call and wake him. come gets me fixes me some breakfast and goes to work. He takes care of our dogs, walks them feeds them, cleans up after them. He is an angel and overlook and negativity that happens as he does way too much for me to be mad at him for long. He deserves a cookie and much more but a cookie would be a start. I am very luck to have him.

  46. says

    My boyfriend has been recovering from shoulder surgery and has taken on taking care of our 2 little ones under two and myself, because I’m dealing with kidney stones. He’s doing an amazing job, even though he’s injured, he’s really stepped up to the plate. Finances are tough right now, so this would be a great way to say thank you to him!

    My friend Karen deserves and needs a cookie…she’s battling Breast Cancer again and is having to start IV Chemo for the second time and is sad she’s going to lose her hair again. She needs this to be cheered up and cheered on her battle!

  48. Melissa says

    I would like to nominate my dear friend, Rachel Alvarez. She lost her father several years ago about this time of year. Fall is always difficult as she remembers the loss with all the various activities they shared this time if year. I just wish I could help alleviate the loss in some way. Cookies make everyone smile. Thanks!!

  49. Amy says

    I would like to nominate a dear friend. Her daughter was being bullied at school and she committed suicide three years ago at the age of 15. My friend is the one that found her (something a parent should never have to see). She has been very hard on herself ever since. She has since lost her job and her husband. She really deserves something to smile about.

  50. Holly Uhler says

    I’d like to nominate my friend Desirae Brown. She lost her job recently and aside from her mothers disability check she was the only income earner in the house. She has been having to sell off all her things just to buy food and I think she could use something to cheer her up!
