Maddison French, a 10-year-old is imaginative, exuberant, robust, and strong. She has credentials that back up her claims.
The fifth-grader at PS 56 enjoys baking cookies. So much so that she has elevated her talent as well as her drive to aid the less fortunate to a new level.
The passionate Rossville resident recalls that everything began a little over a year ago. "When the world wasn't filled with unicorns and princesses, I wanted to figure out how to improve things for people to live in. I pondered. Who wouldn't enjoy a tasty treat? I then approached everyone I knew and told them I wanted to establish a business and bake cookies.”
Maddie talked to her parents, Ilana and Niles, about the notion of making her unique emblem with a dual goal in mind.
Maddie also bakes brownies and muffins in addition to cookies.
According to Ilana, the little baker from the South Shore then worked her magic to develop menus and a logo. So she chose to name the business "Maddie's Sweet Treats," she continued.
Maddie said she was aware that for people to quickly recognize her company, the bags needed to bear a distinctive logo—something eye-catching.
Maddie advertises her company as "crafted goodies for a good cause" and uses Facebook blasts and word-of-mouth to spread the message.
After paying for the all-fresh ingredients herself, Maddie donates 45% of the total sales for that month and uses the remaining money to compute the costs.
Maddie explains, "My mom is my social media manager and my number one person by my side," before revealing that she has already given more than $3,000 to several causes, including St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. And the neighborhood charity that benefited from Maddie's good deeds this month was the Emergency Children's Help Organization (E.C.H.O).
She stated, "I start new each month and I do it for four weeks. We donated $555 to E.C.H.O. And once per week, I run pop-up blasts.”
During the organization's November board meeting, Maddie's Sweet Treats gave a $555 check to the Emergency Children's Help Organization. A Charleston-based nonprofit called E.C.H.O. provides financial aid to kids and families going through medical emergencies.
Sebastian Angelico, founder and chairman of E.C.H.O, said of the 10-year-old girl, "And at 10 she's gone on her charitable journey to award a major amount of her cookie sale revenues to local organizations."
Madison is such a great young lady who, at such a young age, has fully grasped the value of giving, he continued. "We appreciate Madison and her parents, Niles and Ilana, choosing to donate to E.C.H.O.," the statement reads.
