To My Dad

If you don't know much about the Ope's story, there's one thing you should definitely know -- my dad, Dr. Richard Oppenlander -- is one of the most amazing humans on the planet. True story! On top of being a great dad who is profoundly committed to his family, he is an author, an activist, and a dentist. He's spent more than 40 years studying nutrition, and the implications of our dietary choices on the environment and the food industry.

We wouldn't be selling the world's tastiest, vegan, certified organic cookies if it weren't for the values instilled in me by both my parents, actually. They raised me and my sister and brother to be forward-thinking, conscientious, committed to our health and our planet. Ope's Cookies is as much about who we are as it is what we do. 

In honor of Dr. O and all the other amazing dads out there, we're running a special! Buy any two dozen cookies using the code "DADSDAY" and receive free shipping. 

But wait, there's more! (I've always wanted to say that to someone!) We'll also send you a signed, first edition, hard copy of Dr. O's book, "Comfortably Unaware." In it, he tackles the crucial issue of global depletion as it relates to food choice. Ellen DeGeneres said, "If you care about our planet, and want to make a difference, this book is a must read."  

So, order two dozen cookies by Father's Day, June 17, to receive free shipping and your copy of "Comfortably Unaware." If you order by 4 p.m. EST on Thursday, June 14, cookies will arrive by Father's Day. 

To my dad -- thank you for your support through the years, and for encouraging us to change the world, one cookie at a time.

Happy Father's Day!
