I have a sister who loves to make pies – really loves to make pies. She takes a person’s favorite fruit, checks if they are gluten intolerant (or not) and then makes them a pie, just because. It is her way of giving and I love this give. With World Pie Day right around the corner, it seems a perfect time to make (or buy) a pie for your next daily give. You just might make this your favorite give too!
Admittedly we are cookie makers, we love our cookies, but in honour of World Pie Day we are going to make a pie and split it up between our grandmothers/mothers. Our grandmothers/mothers are great at helping out in so many ways on a weekly basis. Whether it be have a craft day with a grandson, or help with the dishes after dinner, or just call and see how their grandsons school went one day, we love, love, love our grandmothers and want to say thanks.
The American Pie Association, which celebrates National Pie Day on January 23, created a Pie it Forward Mission this year, requesting that people Pie It Forward! World Pie Day can follow suit and Pie It Forward all over the globe.
Bake a pie, buy a pie, share a pie. How the pie came to be is of little importance. It is all about giving today and giving a pie to someone, or a group of people who you would like recognize.
You might already have a favorite pie recipe or a local bakery that cooks your favorite pie. Buy a pie, bake a pie, or use these recipes to inspire a new giving tradition. My sister loves this giving tradition and continues to Pie It Forward when she is looking for a weekly give.
Organizations all over the world have a Pie It Forward Day. Meals on Wheels, local bakeries and even Pizza Joints (pizza pie!) Find out if a local Meals on Wheels chapter has a Pie Day where you can donate a pie, donate to the campaign, or deliver the pies as a volunteer that day! A Palm Beach Meals on Wheels chapter has a Pie It Forward Campaign that you can donate to now in honor of Pie Day. That would be your daily give!
