Cooking Up Kindness: How a Small Business Turned Donna Kelce’s Famous Cookies into a Charitable Effort

Donna Kelce supports small businesses by allowing them to feature cookie recipes on mugs to help relieve students’ lunch debt – KIRO 7 News Seattle

Donna Kelce, the mother of Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce and Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce, is known for her famous chocolate chip cookies. A small business in the Kansas City area created a mug that said “It’s Mama Kelce’s world and we’re just living in it” which caught the attention of Donna Kelce, 71, according to People. She ended up buying 20 of the mugs for Christmas gifts. The mug actually features the entire recipe and directions for Donna Kelce’s cookie recipe and sells for about $18, according to People.

The owner of the small business, Annie Stowe, reached out to Donna after she received word that her purchase had caught her eye. Annie asked if she could put Donna’s cookie recipe on a mug and donate $5 per mug sold to pay off elementary school lunch debt — and Donna agreed. Enough mugs were sold to pay off about $2,000 toward lunch debt at a school in the Kansas City metro area. When asked why she decided to do this, Annie said “When the Chiefs do well, I do well and this is my little way to give back.”

Donna Kelce’s cookies became well known after she made them for her sons before they met in Super Bowl LVII in February 2023. If you are interested in a mug featuring her recipe and supporting a good cause at the same time, you can visit Annie’s Barn’s website.

Stowe also mentioned that she had asked Donna if she wanted to deliver the checks to the school with her but so far has not heard back from her. It seems like Annie is doing great things while giving back at the same time!
