Storytellers Wanted!

At Little Rae’s Bakery we pour our heart and soul into making delicious baked goods that are peanut-free and nut-free. But what makes us feel really good is hearing your stories—about children and loved ones with nut allergies who are finally able to eat baked goods they know are safe.

Your stories fuel our passion to promote awareness of this very real medical issue. Here on our website we want to connect like-minded folks and share your experiences. In the coming months we hope to collect and showcase these stories.

The No Nuts Allowed, Bi-Monthly Story Contest

Deadline for submissions is June 30, 2013

It’s easy to go down that dark path of a child going to the hospital, or someone suffering from anaphylactic shock, but we’re looking for uplifting stories that can help to ease the burden of living with this potentially life-threatening allergy. Plus, we all need a good laugh about it from time to time.

Send us a story (500-700 words) along with your picture or a picture of your loved one. We’ll review it, and if it meets our criteria and is in good taste (because good taste is our thing), we’ll post it on our website in a new story section we’re currently creating. Include one or up to three photos.

The prize? The top five storytellers will receive a Little Rae’s Bakery Gift Box filled with delicious peanut-free and nut-free baked goods.

Hmmmm. What to write about…

Here are a few ideas to get you thinking, but don’t feel confined to this list. Be original! Have fun! Make it your own.

  • Have you done something to create awareness of nut allergies in your community or school?
  • Do you have any helpful tips or tricks for parents who have a child with this allergy?
  • Do you have a funny story about how others around you try to protect you from this allergy?
  • What crazy extremes have you had to go through to find something safe to eat?
  • Have you ever laughed so hard while eating a nut-free cookie that milk shot out your nose?
