These days, Walshin is connecting in ways she never imagined. She’s established a nonprofit, aptly called “Drop In & Decorate,” around the whole endeavor. She hosts cookie-decorating get-togethers during the holidays as well as in early May, just before Mother’s Day. More impressively, she’s inspired others to follow her lead. To date, Drop In & Decorate events have taken place in 33 states as well as in Canada, Germany, India, Japan, and the Dominican Republic–and more than 20,000 cookies have found their way to 116 different social-service agencies.–Yankee Magazine, November/December 2010
