Los Angeles, CA - Cookies To College Founder Brent Bateman has raised the stakes in his efforts to launch his eleven-year-in-the-making dream, the Cookies To College Program, across schools nationwide in 2012.
Bateman, whose creation, http://www.cookiestocollege.com/, raises money for individual student's future college costs, along with their local school and PTA organizations, all with the simple task of handing out
"We're taking on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and Myspace all in one, and creating something out of this world for students. Our online learning portal will not only educate and inspire, but we'll help to craft the dreams of all our participants. The Cookies To College Program and The Daily Jar will change education around the world."
While most state and local governments continue to struggle to find ways to raise needed funds, Bateman says his program is the perfect recipe for sweet success.
"I've created a simple method of raising money, and with our program, no one ever touches money or the product. That in itself will be why Cookies To College will surpass Girl Scouts in our seventh year of conducting business," Bateman adds.
While working tirelessly for the past eleven years to bring this project to light, Bateman has been developing three feature film projects, two of which are slated to be released in theaters next year through his production company, Quad City Pictures. http://www.quadcitypictures.com/
Bateman says his inspiration for the Cookies To College Program came from his father, Lee "Buddy" Bateman, who created the local Bowl-A-Thon formula at his Town & Country Bowling Center, in Rock Island, Illinois, in 1962.
"My dad's Bowl-A-thon formula has raised more than 250 million dollars for charities nationwide over the past fifty years. We taught Junior Achievement how to hold local Bowl-A-Thon's and now they raise fifteen to twenty million dollars a year hosting local Bowl-A-Thon's. I just used a different product, cookies, as a means to raise money for students who deserve a future while keeping their own dreams in tact."
As Bateman vows to bake a million cookies inside his own kitchen, at his Los Angeles area home, he says it's the children who his program will reach that gives him the inspiration to take on such an ambitious challenge, "It's all about the children. Children can create magic if we just give them the tools."
