Amidst the Covid-19 upheaval of 2020, Agnes Chin (Director of Complete Deelite Ltd. & Founder of EAGAA) sensed an opportunity to help spread hope in a time of despair. She partnered up with Jo Soo-Tang, an NGO advisor and fellow cooking aficionado, and a mother of three, to create Cookie Smiles – a campaign fundraising platform.
Born with a mission to support the disadvantaged, and to satisfy the world with the greatest comfort food of all time – cookies. Our cookie collection is designed to delight both children and adults alike.
Only the freshest and finest ingredients are selected to bake and handcraft delicious cookies delivered directly to you!
COOKIE SMILES is a local social enterprise under the Edible Artists Global Academy Association (EAGAA), whose purpose is to help support different charities every year via fundraising, offer training opportunities for the disadvantaged, and to provide jobs for the physically impaired.

Looking out for the disadvantaged youth under training at Shine VTC college. Through our partnership with Complete Deelite, we took in 3 interns and retained 2 graduates under full time employment, with full income sponsored by Complete Deelite.
Shining Star initiative was born, with more than 20 students from Shine being placed in internship position at various 5-star hotels in Hong Kong.
This is a continuing initiative, and we are also embarking on placing these graduates in different areas in our network hotels and F&B establishments with the aim of full and permanent employment.
Funds are also being raised to upgrade these students in their physical well-being and presentation for higher positions and obtaining gainful employment.
