Lighting Hearts Lighting Homes 2020

Bake from the Heart

Delicious homemade cookies are festive essential and the process of making them as a labour of love, joy and sweat is a highlight of the Festival of Lights.

It is definitely more convenient to buy these goodies readymade from shops, but we believe it is just as important to prepare the goodies with love and share it with our beneficiaries.
We welcome all homemade cookie enthusiasts to bake simple Suji biscuits for our beneficiaries.

Given the number of beneficiaries this year, we hope that each baker will be able to bake a minimum of 10 bottles of loved filled Suji biscuits.

The recipe for the Suji biscuits can be found below. Please feel free to pen some wishes on the cookie bottles.

Sponsorship of Bottles.
We are working with a sponsor who will provide the bottles for your cookies, hence you will not need to purchase the bottles. To facilitate the delivery of the bottles to you, we request that you provide your home address.

 

Registration is now closed.
We have reached our target! Thank you for your contributions!
