The moms that receive the tote bags are always touched, delighted and very pleased to receive this gift. They are genuinely surprised and kind of “taken aback” by this act of kindness. I observed a mom just today have this very reaction. And on her way out of our pantry she pulled the jar of cookie mix out of the tote bag and showed her kids. And she said “we get to bake cookies together” And the kids were jumping up and down with excitement.
