Donna Kelce, mother of Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce and Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce, is known for her famous chocolate chip cookies. A small business in the Kansas City area created a mug that said, “It’s Mama Kelce’s world and we’re just living in it,” which caught the attention of Donna Kelce, 71, according to People. She ended up buying 20 mugs for Christmas gifts. The mug actually contains Donna Kelce’s entire recipe and cookie recipe instructions and retails for about $18, according to People.
In response to Donna’s purchase, small business owner Annie Stove reached out to Donna and asked if she could put her cookie recipe on a mug and donate $5 per mug sold to pay off her elementary school lunch debt – and she said yes. Enough cups were sold to pay off about $2,000 in school lunch debt in the Kansas City metro area. When the Chiefs do well, I do well and this is my little way of giving back, Stove said.
Donna Kelsey’s cupcakes became famous after she made them for her sons, Travis and Jason, before they met at Super Bowl LVII in February 2023. If you’re interested in a mug, you can visit the Annie’s Barn website.
Stove said she asked Donna Kelsey if she wanted to deliver the checks to the school with her, but so far she hasn’t heard back. Donna Kelce is currently in Las Vegas for the Super Bowl to watch her son Travis and the Kansas City Chiefs take on the San Francisco 49ers.
