Sweet's Syrup turns THREE YEARS OLD on March 3rd!  How cool is that?!?  3 on 3/3!   In honor of the occasion, we're creating a new holiday - Sweetsgiving!  

Every year, our anniversary week will be full of giving back to our community, something that is so important to us at Sweet's.   And to make it extra special and fun, you're all invited to celebrate Sweetsgiving with us!  

During the whole week of March 3rd, every pint of Sweet's Syrup you buy will be matched!  Sweet's will donate a bottle in your name to an organization that cares for people with weakened immune systems.  You can share the health-boosting powers of elderberry syrup with those who need it most!  

Where will we spread the Sweetness?


Levine Children's Hospital:  Sweet's is already helping keep the nursing staff of the NICU, Pediatric Oncology Unit, and Progressive Care Unit healthy.  The patients in these units have under-developed or compromised immune systems, and it's critical that they have healthy caretakers!  Many nurses report a big reduction in their sick days after incorporating Sweet's Syrup into their daily routines.  It's been an awesome collaboration so far, and you can help it continue!

Pierce's Project:  This non-profit was founded to support families of premature or chronically ill infants before, during and after their stays in the NICU.  Its founders are paying forward the love and support they received when their son Pierce was born four months early, weighing only 1 pound 8 ounces.  Premature babies are more vulnerable to infection due to immature immune systems.  If a baby's parents or siblings get sick, they can't be around the baby until they're better, disrupting the critical bonding process and adding stress to an already challenging situation.  Pierce's Project will directly supply families of preemies with Sweet's Syrup, to help keep their immune systems in tip-top shape.

Foster Village Charlotte:  Foster parents have hero status, in my eyes.  My dear friend Sloan Crawford is a rock star foster mom.  She helped establish Foster Village as a support network for foster families.  They do incredible work and spread so much love!  Many foster children have poor immune systems and frequent illnesses.  In partnership with Foster Village Charlotte, Sweet's will donate syrup to foster families, so they can strengthen the precious children in their care.
