Cookie Time Charitable Trust is primarily funded by Cookie Time Limited, through its annual Christmas Cookies campaign. Each year, the Trust receives a donation from sales of Christmas Cookies, amounting to more than $1.6 million to date.
In 2016, the target is a $250,000 donation to support Assistance Dogs New Zealand Trust plus other CTCT projects, including ongoing sponsorship of Dyslexia Foundation of New Zealand.
Christmas Cookies are the real taste of a Kiwi Christmas – always a sweet festive gift or treat to share with family, friends and colleagues. Proudly made in New Zealand from real chocolate and real ingredients.
Available in four great flavours – Salted Caramel, Chocolate Chip, Cranberry White Chocolate and Apricot Chocolate. Plus Gluten Free Chocolate Chip. All presented in vibrant new collectible Cookie Muncher bucket designs, with the buckets able to be recycled or put to all sorts of good use – from sandcastle buckets and peg baskets to toy storage.
Christmas Cookies are available online or from local sellers – tertiary students who run their own cookie-selling businesses in the seven weeks leading up to Christmas. The campaign gives these young entrepreneurs a unique opportunity to team up with an iconic Kiwi brand and gain invaluable business experience for future employment or other entrepreneurial ventures.
