Pumpkins are everywhere -- which means pie can't be far behind. But this Thanksgiving, instead of going through the hassle of baking pies, you can purchase your dessert from Project Angel Heart , which kicks off its Pie in the Sky campaign today. The Pie in the Sky sale, which runs until November 21, benefits Project Angel Heart's home-delivery meal program -- which prepares and delivers meals to those fighting cancer, kidney failure, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening illnesses.
The offerings aren't all pumpkin, either: Seasonal pies including apple, cherry and pecan are being donated by the fabulous Bluepoint Bakery, and can be purchased online for $25 each ($20 is tax-deductible) for pick-up on November 26 at various metro locations. For each pie sold, Project Angel Heart will be able to prepare and deliver five nutritious meals to Colorado residents in need.
Project Angel Heart hopes to sell 2,000 pies this year -- so start salivating and ordering.
