Fortune Cookie Philanthropy – Confucius Pays it Forward

FancyFortuneCookies, America’s premier gourmet fortune cookie bakery, is celebrating its 20th anniversary. To celebrate, they are turning Confucius into a philanthropist, and sharing their good fortune with deserving individuals.

Indianapolis, IN – October 23, 2009 (PressReleasePivot) — Fortune cookies and Confucius go hand in hand. But what if Confucius didn’t just give out little bits of wisdom, but turned his powers for greater good? A small family-owned fortune cookie bakery in Indianapolis is doing just that.

“FancyFortuneCookies has been providing businesses and private individuals a unique way to market their ideas for over 20 years ( ),” says Mike Fry, CEO, inventor and maker of America’s only bakery of flavored gourmet fortune cookies. “This economy has been tough on family-owned businesses like mine, and individuals across the country. It’s been my good fortune to have a small business and enrich the lives of my employees and family, and if I can pay it forward in a small way that’s even better.”

Personalized fortune cookies are the specialty of Indianapolis-based FancyFortuneCookies. For the past 20 years they have quietly built their business into a fortune cookie empire. They don’t just bake ordinary fortune cookies, but have innovative flavored and colored cookies.

While FancyFortuneCookies may not be a household name – yet – they have had the good fortune to provide fortune cookies to Oprah, Donald Trump, Juicy Couture, Guess, Motorola, Coca Cola and many other celebrities and companies ( ). Now they are giving 100 personalized fortune cookies away for free every day for 100 days. This is what they are calling 100 Wishes in 100 Days.

“My wish was for the women and children’s shelter in Fort Wayne called Charis House.” Says Dawn Steveson, recipient of FancyFortuneCookies wish number 9. “My parents volunteer as Santa and Mrs. Claus, at the women’s shelter, and the fun cookies would be a great surprise for the children. I can’t wait to see the look on the kids’ faces when they get their fortune cookies! God bless you and your company!”

What is 100 Wishes in 100 Days?
• 100 personalized fortune cookies will be given to people, causes, and events that deserve and can use free fortune cookies to make a small positive difference in their lives or organizations.

“I know it’s a small thing, but if I can brighten the day for a few people during these tough times with something fun and unexpected, then I’m making a difference,” says Fry. “I can’t think of a better way to celebrate 20 years in business than paying it forward.
