If you have email, you’ve been sent something about Friendship Day at some point. It’s usually a cute message that we read (or not) then delete knowing it was created to have us send more email!
Truth is, there IS actually a Friendship Day – in fact there are two! Back in 1919 Hallmark establish National Friendship Day as the first Sunday in August. It died off over the years, but was resurrected in 1998 when the U.N. designated Winnie the Pooh as the World’s Ambassador of Friendship and set International Friendship Day as July 30.
So, celebrate your friends and friendships by sharing some cookies internationally on July 30 or nationally on August 7 this year. We’ll package them up into a sharable box or individually wrap them for single giveaways. No matter how you celebrate, it’s a great time to be thankful for friends.

Every month we accept submissions for a #RandomActsofSweetness, where someone can nominate someone they think is deserving, and we will send them a free box of our gourmet sugar cookies. This months winner is Candace Bishop, who is the Student Support and Disability Coordinator at The Art Institute of Vancouver. Candace was nominate by her friend Theresa, who says,
“She (Candace) goes above and beyond the call of duty and assist the students that are having trouble not only academically, but personally. She has paid out of her own pocket for groceries for students that have not had enough money. Her thoughtfulness and kindness is genuine, and she puts her heart into her job every day. Candace always has a smile on her face despite what is going on.”
Thank you Candace for being awesome, and for doing the great work you do. We hope you enjoy the cookies.
If you would like to nominate someone for next month’s #RandomActsofSweetness, then nominate them here, and next month we will announce the winner.

Do you know someone who goes out of their way every day for other people? Do they take the extra effort to make your day a little bit better? Are they self-less and caring? Help brighten their day a little bit by sending them a gourmet box of cookies, on us. Our boxes of cookies will most definitely sweeten their day. Just nominate them here, and each month we will choose the winner. It’s that easy! So go ahead, make a random act of sweetness.
Does your local barista always get your order right? Do you have a co-worker that’s always down to stay late and help on tight deadlines? Now is your chance to recognize these fabulous people by sending them a little sugar.
We’re launching a movement to bring a few smiles to those that go the extra mile and make a difference, even if it’s just to one person.
Simply nominate someone through our website, and each month Sugar will send one person a large box of gourmet sugar cookies. They are hoping this sweet delivery will not only delight someone deserving, but also encourage others to do something nice for someone else, for no reason at all.
