More about Macaron Day

Inspired by the annual Jour du Macaron in Paris, in which free macarons are given out and proceeds are given to charity, the patrons of So Sweet Pastries receive one free macaron in exchange for making a donation to The Women of Toledo’s “No Women Left Behind” scholarship program. Macaron Day is hosted every year on March 20.


“I've been empowered by Women of Toledo both, by their coaches and mentors. Every session, I learn something new, gain confidence to reach for something more, and find a greater peace with the role I play in my family. The passion for supporting women is evident in WOT Team, which inspires me to be a better person. And to be able to partake in this journey for free just a blessing for a single mom to 2 young children”

Every $250 we raise will fund 1 marginalized or disconnected women or young women in transition to receive an emergency fund during transition or intensive series of coaching, mentoring, and peer-networking support group session.
